Celtic Connections: Sandycove, Kinsale, Cork

Avalon marries cutting-edge contemporary comfort with a sense of peace and relaxation.

Commanding views across the sweep of the Kinsale coastline and the Sovereign Islands beyond, the focal point of the house is the flowing reception rooms.

There are four double bedrooms, including a generous master suite, with a signature en suite. There is a small harbour at Sandycove, where residents are exclusively allowed a private mooring in the estuary. Today’s tight planning conditions make it unlikely that such a house will ever be created again, making Avalon an exceptionally rare opportunity to live an enviable life-style. Found off a quiet roadway, electric gates lead to a drive that brings you down through a grass amphitheatre. To the front of the house are flat grass areas for family games of football or a helipad subject to planning, and a large parking area, with a very generous double garage, workspace and extensive outbuilding. There is a fire pit and a hot tub.
