IF YOU’RE LOOKING for beautiful views, a stunning interior and a tranquil location, Toor effortlessly ticks each of those boxes.

Located just outside the seaside village of Waterville, on the Ring of Kerry, the three-bed property boasts panoramic views of the Kerry coastline, along the Wild Atlantic Way and across to Ballinskelligs Bay.

Set on a 0.89 acre site, the house is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the views, while multiple floor-to-ceiling windows bring the outside in.

The property, which measures 2,260 sq ft, features a modern house and an old stone cottage, and seamlessly blends the old with the new.

Stepping inside, a vaulted glass atrium floods the hallway with light. The open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge is to the left, and immediately takes one’s breath away upon entering.

Sliding glass doors and extra large windows provide picturesque views of the bay and its surrounds. This space enjoys a contemporary yet welcoming feel, with a wood-burning stove, sleek cabinets in the kitchen and an island with a polished concrete worktop. There are polished concrete floors in here, and these continue throughout the ground floor.

The glass doors open to a spacious concrete patio, which makes for the perfect spot to breathe in the ocean air and absorb the magnificent views. The rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn, with a sheltered outdoor seating area in an old stable building.
