SITUATED JUST OFF the Ring of Kerry, Cappanacush Heights ticks every box for interior, exterior and location.

As its name suggests, the five-bed property sits on an elevated site of 2.59 acres, affording views over the Caha Mountains, Kenmare Bay and the Beara Peninsula. Talk about picture perfect.

While Kenmare Bay is just a five-minute drive away, Cappanacush Heights’ new owners won’t even have to leave their property to be by the water, as the grounds include a large lake with patio and decking areas, as well as an extensive lawn.

Built in 2002, the house measures 4,875 sq ft and features a fully stone-clad exterior with an exposed timber frame, while the interior is professionally designed and comes fully furnished. 

The main living area of the property is particularly impressive, with full-length windows, double-height ceilings, a wood-burning stove and two sets of French doors to a patio area.

An interesting feature, part of one wall is made from glass and looks into what’s currently used as a home office, but could also work as a dining room or as a bedroom with blinds. 

The kitchen is a modern and slick space, with Italian units, ceramic tiled floors and worktops and built-in appliances. Double oak doors open to the hallway, while another set of French doors lead to the patio.

Other features throughout the property include oak and natural limestone floors, underfloor heating and a marble and oak staircase. The mix of luxury materials and earthy tones gives the house a contemporary and stylish feel, while still providing a warm and welcoming atmosphere.

There are three double bedrooms on the first floor, each of which has its own en suite bathroom. The master bedroom is, of course, the most impressive, with its own private balcony for enjoying views of the lake, a lounge area and a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room.

While Cappanacush Heights boasts its own oasis on 2.59 acres, there’s plenty to be enjoyed beyond its boundaries. Kenmare town is a 10-minute drive away, Coss Strand Beach is five minutes away and there are multiple beautiful walks to be enjoyed along the Kerry Way.
