Woodland hideaway with lush gardens and a waterfall on the Wild Atlantic Way

Roaring Water sits just outside Castletownbere on Cork’s Beara Peninsula.

SITUATED ON THE Beara Peninsula in Millcove, Co Cork, Roaring Water is a spectacular three-bed property. 

Located on a one acre site of south-facing grounds, Roaring Water lives up to its name – there’s a waterfall to the front of the house, which flows into the nearby sea.

With a slate facade and pops of yellow, the property beautifully complements its surroundings. Mature trees and shrubs add to the sense of peacefulness and privacy, while a patio by the stream provides the perfect place to listen to the sounds of nature.

Inside, Roaring Water is designed to bring the outside in as much as possible throughout its 1,785 sq ft. It features an impressive open-plan interior, with the living room, kitchen and dining room spread over a split-level layout.

Floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room make up one wall and provide beautiful views of the garden – so much so you probably won’t see much need for a TV. High ceilings add to the feeling of spaciousness, while there’s also a solid fuel stove for cold winter days.

Steps lead down to the dining area, where there’s room for a table to comfortably seat eight. Sliding glass doors open to the waterside patio, which will no doubt be the dining location of choice during the spring and summer months.

The kitchen is neat and compact, but not short on space – although more storage could easily be added with a few layout changes.

There’s one large double bedroom on the ground floor, which opens directly onto the patio area and feels similar to what you’d find in a villa in a hot country. An en suite bathroom, guest bathroom and utility room complete the accommodation at this level.

Moving upstairs, the master bedroom boasts a full length bay window with garden views and a dressing room of equal size. Another double bedroom at this level also overlooks the garden, while a large family bathroom with his ‘n’ hers sinks and a raised bath completes the accommodation.

Adding to its appeal, Roaring Water benefits from several energy efficient features, including solar-powered hot water and high quality glazing. If your job allows for remote working, fibre broadband accessibility is sure to be appreciated.

As for location, golfers will be kept busy with Berehaven Golf Course just a 15 minute stroll away. There are many beautiful walks to enjoy in and around the coast on the Beara Peninsula, and you’ll find plenty of local amenities in Castletownbere, a five minute drive away. 

With a tranquil waterfall, private grounds and the Wild Atlantic Way on your doorstep, Roaring Water is a rare gem.
