Tucked away at the end of a secluded private drive, Inane House is a delightful property with the most stunning coastal aspect over the undulating countryside to the famed Castlehaven coastline.

A real oasis of calm and tranquillity, Inane House measures circa 102 sqm (1,100 sq ft) with two sizeable bedrooms, one of which is ensuite. It is a light-filled home with large picture windows taking advantage of the stunning coastal views. The kitchen and bathrooms have all been recently remodelled to a very high standard. Accommodation is well laid out and easily accessible all on one level.

There is a detached studio, circa 24 sq m, to the rear of the property which is suitable for several uses, such as a work from home office, artist's studio or gym. Originally a pre-famine dwelling, it has benefited from the restoration of the hearth which now includes a solid fuel stove. With a vaulted ceiling, velux windows and exposed original brickwork, it is a super space and real asset to the property. This was the original homeplace of Ellen Buckley, the second wife of the Irish patriot O' Donovan Rossa.

Set on circa 1 acre, the grounds surrounding the property are beautifully landscaped, laid out mainly in lawn, with mature trees and flowering plants.

The nearby village of Castletownshend (c. 2.5km) is a highly evocative place, a unique picturesque coastal period village. It is renowned as an international sailing and water sports centre. It boasts of two restaurants, two pubs and a shop.

The vibrant market town of Skibbereen is just a short 10-minute drive away, with a host of public services, a number of excellent shops, supermarkets, a thriving country market and restaurants. There is also ‘Ludgate' digital hub with the benefit of 1GB connectivity which provides hot desks for individuals, start-ups or established companies.

West Cork attracts a very cosmopolitan population, with many renowned artists and writers residing in the area. It offers a variety of leisure opportunities and sporting facilities together with a peaceful pace of life.

This area provides some of the finest sailing along the entire south coast, whilst golf is catered for at Skibbereen, Clonakilty and Bantry. There is excellent fishing by arrangement on the Rivers Ilen, Argideen and Bandon. Sandy Blue Flag beaches are to be found at Inchydoney, Rosscarbery and Tragumna. There are many fine eating establishments dotted along the coastline, two with Michelin star status.

Approximately one hour's drive from Cork airport and located on the Wild Atlantic Way, Inane House is the quintessential West Cork bolthole and has to be viewed to be appreciated.
