High-end Airbnb? Great family home? Many options in this beautifully located Bantry construction

Hillsdale is a beautiful modern home that complements the 0.54 acre site it sits on, says Denis Harrington of Harrington Estates, and of course it takes full advantage of the wonderful sea and mountain views.

Barely 10 years old, it has replaced an older style dwelling and is laid out in a way that maximizes natural light and the beautiful scenery of West Cork.

A five-bed, four-bath house, Mr Harrington believes its size and location, “in the most desirable part of town, between Bantry and Ballallickey, on Glengarriff Road”, will attract a number of suitors, including those interested in providing an upscale vacation rental / AirBnB, or a family looking for a quality coastal home.

“In my mind this is a very attractive family home,” says Harrington, “but recently we have had a number of high quality residential sales, bought by people with a business plan.

Hillsdale is set up so that the kitchen receives morning light and by mid-afternoon the main living room (with oak flooring, salvaged from a French monastery) also benefits.

The rooms are generous, including the two bedrooms on the ground floor. There are three bedrooms on the first floor, all with en-suite bathrooms, and the upstairs layout lends itself to the possibility of another living room to enjoy those sea views.

In Newtown, within walking distance of downtown Bantry and the Bantry Golf Club, Mr. Harrington says Hillsdale stands out for its build quality and setting. It carries an AMV of € 550,000.

VERDICT: Spacious and upscale house located in a unique landscape.
