WITH DUNMANUS BAY and the West Cork countryside as its backdrop, Janest wouldn’t look out of place on a postcard.

The five-bed property is a five-minute stroll from Dunbeacon Bay Beach, and is perfectly positioned to enjoy uninterrupted views of the bay and the seemingly endless surrounding countryside. 

It’s located on a site of 1.5 acres, including paddocks, stables, a patio area and beautiful lawns. Mature trees enhance the sense of privacy and tranquillity even further.

Built in 2007, Janest is a warm and welcoming family home with contemporary features. It spans 1,873 sq ft, allowing for several large living areas and spacious bedrooms.

Stepping inside, the kitchen is the hub of the home. It features a country-style design with tiled floors and a large centre island, while sliding glass doors open to the patio area.

The lounge is located off the kitchen, with a wood-burning stove here, while both rooms feature folding doors which lead to the bright and beautiful sunroom. This space acts as both a dining and living area, with floor-to-ceiling windows providing panoramic views of the surrounding gardens and countryside.

If you’re thinking that the tiles throughout the kitchen and sunroom will make for cold feet during the winter months, the inclusion of underfloor heating throughout the entire ground floor is sure to rectify that. Two of the five double bedrooms are located on the ground floor, as well as a large bathroom with a walk-in shower. Solar panels provide an eco-friendly way to power the property.

Moving to the first floor, the master suite is located here. This bedroom benefits from an en suite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe, as well as access to a private balcony which overlooks the bay. There are two more bedrooms on this floor.

There’s plenty of parking space at Janest, with a large gravel driveway to the front. The patio area to the rear is the ideal spot to sit and soak up the views, while the lawns are perfect for younger members of the family to play on.

With Dunmanus Bay just a stone’s throw from the property, there’s no shortage of beautiful coastal walks to enjoy. Durrus village can be reached within five minute drive, while Bantry can be reached within 15 minutes. 

Tucked away in a peaceful and private location with beautiful views, while still being close to everyday amenities, Janest is an inviting family home in a truly idyllic setting.
