ESCAPING TO A large house in the countryside has never sounded so appealing – and Adrigole House in Adrigole, West Cork, ticks all of the boxes.

Located on 1.5 acres of beautiful grounds, the Georgian property enjoys a private and scenic location while being just a five-minute walk from Adrigole Harbour.

While the four-bed residence been carefully upgraded and maintained over the years, it still maintains much of its original charm and character.

A perfect example of this being the kitchen, which is located to the rear of the 2,600 sq ft property. Old meets new in this space, with checkerboard floors, ceiling beams, a wood-burning stove and modern appliances. Two picture windows flood the room with light and provide tranquil views of the garden.

Also on the ground floor is the lounge, which features a wood-burning stove for cosy nights in, plus a separate dining room with sash windows.

For those seeking an extra bit of privacy, one of the bedrooms is accessed via its own staircase. With wooden floors and a light-filled layout, this space could also work well as a den for teenagers or a home office. 

Making the most of every space, there’s room in the landing area to create an at-home library. There are two bathrooms in the property, one of which has a bath for unwinding in after a long day.
