Michael Pigott Auctioneer & Valuer is very excited to bring to the market this magnificent residence set on 0.6 of an acre of manicured mature gardens on an elevated site in one of Cork’s most coveted locations, with breath-taking unobstructed sea views, just outside Nohoval village.

On entering this pristine home, it is immediately obvious that light, space, function and comfort have been given due consideration in every aspect of the design and no expense spared in their execution. With a floor area of approximately 2,280 square feet, the property has a lot to offer in terms of generous and well-proportioned living space.

Its large entrance hall is the primary access to the multiple elements of this superb residence. Through the reception area and to the left is the substantial, bright and spacious sitting room with stunning solid oak flooring and multi-fuel stove with a stone surround. The true focal point, however, is a large bay window through which unparalleled ocean views, spanning from the Old Head of Kinsale to Ballycotton, can be enjoyed. The dedicated kitchen/dining room, which also looks out onto the spectacular seascape, has been designed proportionate to the vast accommodation, allowing ample space to seat and cater for a large family and guests simultaneously. Just off the kitchen there is an impressive larder with solid wood storage and additional space for an extra-large fridge freezer. This natural flow then leads to a WC and an adjoined garage/workshop and boiler house. The far end of the main hall gives access to a down stairs double bedroom and a large study that could equally be used as a second living room or playroom.

A custom built, mahogany staircase leads to the newly carpeted first floor accommodation. One wing comprises the very large master bedroom with walk-in dressing room and an ensuite that incorporates a deep soak tub, a fantastic powered shower, towel radiator and top of the range chrome fittings and ceramicware. To the far end is a double bedroom of substantial proportions overlooking the garden with separate access to yet another luxury full bath WC. Across the hall is the fourth double bedroom with its charming built in window seat, the perfect perch to sit and read a book or observe passing ships in the night. Tastefully decorated and presented in excellent condition throughout, many of the rooms are dual-aspect and, thanks to the property's elevated position, enjoy expansive panoramic views of the countryside and the sea.

Outside, the current owners have made the most of the site by creating a delightful landscaped garden, featuring a host of mature shrubs, hedges and planting areas. There is ample parking space to the front of the property and a large al fresco dining and walled in patio area hug the side and rear of the house.

Future-proofing has been considered in this exceptional build with the installation of Fibre Optic Broadband. A new water well was drilled just last year and in 2024 a 45 gallon dual immersion/central heating tank was fitted, together with a new water pump and a full service to the water treatment system. The entire house has just been painted, inside and outside, and all windows and doors have been serviced. A new oil burner was fitted in 2020 and has been serviced annually.

For those who don't know, Nohoval is a beautiful coastal village nestled in the fringe of the Wild Atlantic Way, just 10 kilometres from Kinsale town. It is home to the renowned Finders Inn restaurant and its surrounding areas include some equally famous landmarks - Nohoval Cove, Oysterhaven and Tracton Woods to name just a few. The area is a mecca for walkers, hikers, cyclists, fishing and water-sport enthusiasts and for anyone with a love for breath-taking landscapes and the ocean.
