PERCHED JUST STEPS away from the water’s edge in Castletownshend, West Cork, is Seafield House

On the market for €5 million, the six-bedroom property oozes luxury from the outset.

The Georgian residence sits on more than four acres of land, with a private shorefront giving you uninterrupted access to the water.

Also on the grounds are three mews cottages, one mews apartment, a detached studio and two boathouses.

Seafield House itself spans an impressive 8,500 sq ft across three floors, with great care and attention taken by the current owner to preserve and enhance its period features.

The property’s breathtaking waterfront location is further complemented by a south-facing terrace, accessed by French doors from the main reception rooms, with steps leading to the gardens.

The hallway and reception rooms are fitted with plush cream carpets, with high ceilings, arched doorways and large windows flooding the rooms with natural light.

Each of the six bedrooms is generous in size, while there are five bathrooms throughout the property.

If six bedrooms isn’t enough, each of the mews cottages has two bedrooms, a living room, kitchen and bathroom, while the mews apartment has one bedroom, a living room, kitchen and bathroom.

To maintain optimum privacy, there is separate access to each cottage from outside the estate.

Just metres from the seafront is a studio, complete with a kitchen, living/dining room and bathroom, perfect for larger gatherings, workshops or events.

Accommodation aside, the grounds themselves feature mature trees, semi-tropical flowering plants, shrubs, a separate herb and vegetable garden and an orchard. There are also three garages and an equipment storage facility.

The small village of Castletownshend is just a short walk away from Seafield House, while Skibbereen and all of its facilities, including shops, supermarkets and restaurants, can be reached by car within 15 minutes. 

If you fancy jetting away from your own private paradise, Cork Airport is an hour’s drive away. But if your idea of paradise involves endless opportunities for sailing, fishing and swimming – plus spectacular views – then why would you ever want to leave?
