Six-bedroom sea view house for sale in Ireland at €325,000

SEVERAL rooms with a view are available at this Irish property currently on the market for offers between €325,000 to €335,000.

The detached, six-bedroom house with ocean views is located in Cobh, Co. Cork.

If you’re anyway interested in matters nautical, this could be an ideal buy.

The view is simply stupendous. Mount Alto faces due south, with the mouth of Cork Harbour and Roches Point lighthouse clearly visible.

The panorama spans 180 degrees, which means you can watch the sun rise above Whitegate to the east, and set over the Atlantic.

From one of the viewing decks, or perhaps from one of the reception rooms, you’ll be able to watch one of Ireland’s busiest shipping lanes, as passenger ferries, cargo ships, cruise liners hug the harbour walls as the sail into Cobh.

You might reflect too, that this was the last view many on board the Titanic had of Ireland.

The tragic passengers may even have spotted Mount Alto, which at that time would have been about 25 years old.

The property itself is a beautifully refurbished detached building on Glassons Avenue, Cobh, some 20km south east of Cork City.

It’s an eclectic house, traditionally Victorian with more than a little of a Gothic flourish.

Three storeys high under a pitched roof, the asymmetrical plan and irregular roofline gives the house real character.
