Waterfront residence with direct access to Baltimore harbour on c. 0.5 acres

Slipway House is one of the finest coastal residences to come to the market in Baltimore. Elevated and set back from the road, it is accessed via a beautiful curved stonewalled drive. This wonderful architecturally redesigned & extended residence has undergone a dramatic recent renovation. It maximises its superior coastal position with spectacular uninterrupted sea and harbour views.

Generously proportioned throughout, consisting of 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, Slipway House measures approximately 365 sq m (3,900 sq ft) which offers a wonderful balance of living and sleeping accommodation. The interiors have a classic pared back Nantucket style that blends seamlessly with a West Cork feel due to the use of natural light, muted textures and soft tones with a clean aesthetic, complementing its enviable waterfront position. The harbour aspect can be admired from each floor.

Set over three floors, with the main living space occupying the mid floor. The open plan kitchen/dining/living area is an exceptional room that uniquely sits among the tree canopies enjoying a breath-taking harbour aspect, enhanced by the extensive use of glazing and large double bi-fold doors. These can be pulled back to access a well-appointed sun deck where one can sit and enjoy the long summer evenings whilst admiring the passing seafaring vessels including the Cape Clear Island & Sherkin Island ferries going to and from the harbour.

Also on this floor, there is a large home office with French door access to a Juliet balcony overlooking the gardens and sunken courtyard. This link to the outside is also extended via an atrium/conservatory, currently utilised as a yoga studio but is suitable to a myriad of different possibilities. The atrium opens onto a very secluded canopy deck which leads into the beautifully mature well stocked gardens with ambient lighting. The southeast of the garden also has a private double level deck to enjoy the sounds of the sea. It is also a superb vantage point to observe West Cork's magnificent sunsets.

The entire top floor encompasses the master suite comprising a triple aspect double bedroom, with a captivating picture window framing the coastal setting to Ringarogy Island & Mount Gabriel in the distance, His & Her walk-in wardrobes plus large ensuite bathroom with stargazing freestanding bath and separate walk-in shower cubicle.

On the ground floor, there is a guest cloakroom & boot room, a very cosy den/TV room with open fireplace. Extra depth and warmth are added to this room by the clever use of panelled and natural stone walls. Here, you will also find the remaining four bedrooms all of which are ensuite. All the bedrooms are of a coastal ambience, with muted tones and cosy coverings. Wake up to the sound of the sea, as three of the bedrooms have a coastal aspect and open out to the front lawn. Nip in for a dip before breakfast directly from your own waterfront bedroom. Whilst the fourth bedroom & ensuite enjoys the morning sun through the French patio doors, and private access to the sunken walled patio garden.

Surrounded by an attractive stone wall. This courtyard has been revitalised as a super entertaining space with BBQ area and firepit. Pathways and curved natural stone steps also lead from this area to the enchanting gardens. There is a clear and very fluid link between Slipway House, its coastal setting and its grounds, that work in harmony together and achieve something very special.

This property provides a very rare opportunity to acquire a newly refurbished waterfront residence on half an acre of landscaped gardens. A short stroll from the centre of the village, with direct water access.

Located on the Wild Atlantic Way, Baltimore has a thriving community with a shop, a number of pubs, cafes & restaurants, including one with a Michelin Star. It is one of the most popular tourist destinations on the West Cork coastline. It is a gateway to the nearby habited and uninhabited islands and sailing enthusiasts are drawn to the area by the sheltered harbour.
