IMAGINE WAKING up to that view every morning.
Over the past 18 months or so, it's fair to say that everyone has dreamed about escaping-- either to the mountains, sea or forest, or just anywhere outside the four walls of their home.
A new home has come on the market in what is indisputably one of the greatest escapes in Ireland, or anywhere in the world for that matter: the serene, picturesque Wild Atlantic Way.
On the very edge of the Mizen peninsula, the most southwesterly point of Ireland, the village of Crookhaven lies nestled between the sea and the sweeping green lands of the Emerald Isle.
The idyllic village is home to only about sixty people, and even in the peak summer tourism months the population swells to only around 400, granting those who live there a relaxed, slow and serene way of life.
Now one of the most ideally-located, gorgeous homes combining tradition with comfort has come on the market via West Cork Property Ltd for anyone who dreams of an escape into one of Ireland's most picturesque hidden gems.
The three-bed, two-bath cottage is nestled right on the edge of the water, offering breathtaking panoramic views of the sparkling blue sea, small bobbing boats, green hills and mountains across the water.
Traditionally, Irish cottages are small and humble- but an extension on to this gorgeous home offers incredible space, and the view from the glass-panelled extension has to be seen to be believed.
The cottage has kept its old charm, however, with a traditional wood burning stove and stone wall, perfect for telling stories by the fire.
There is also direct access to the sea, a beautiful garden and outside patio area, perfect for those hot summer days where you can sunbathe and sip something refreshing while basking in the beauty of the Wild Atlantic Way.
Sadly though, a property this sublime does not come cheap-- the 'Journey's End' cottage will set you back €850,000 ($1 million/ £728,000)-- so for many the Crookhaven dream will remain a fantasy rather than a real-life escape.
