Big Marsh, Church Cross, Skibbereen, West Cork P81VY28Sold B2


New to the market, this truly exceptional home stands out in so many ways.…. Location, design, bespoke features, and as you approach the residence, it appears to seamlessly fit amongst its surroundings from where there are stunning views of Knockomagh (Lough Hyne Hill) and Marsh Quay on the River Ilen.
Following individual and high spec plans, the property was built in 2007. The design and wide use of glass affords wonderfully bright open living spaces and also cosier living areas offering the best of both worlds. The private courtyard forms the centrepiece of this beautiful home and has the benefit of an additional lawned area with mature planting and a gentle stream running along the eastern boundary.
This is an exciting opportunity for those who love entertaining, enjoy open plan living and appreciate attention to detail. All this could be yours, conveniently located just off the N71. The sheltered waters of Roaring Water Bay are only a mile away along with Cunamore Pier… the perfect place to moor your boat or grab the ferry to Heir Island. The area offers wonderful walking & cycling routes as well as water-based activities with Sherkin Island and Baltimore just a short voyage away.
