The property has oil fired central heating together with a synchronised biomass solid fuel system recently installed, making this a very efficient home. It is however the property’s beautiful wooded setting, privacy and convenience that raises this property to a different level surrounded and set within a mature deciduous woodland setting behind private automated gates and elevated looking out onto the Bandon River with direct private river access incorporating a refurbished original stone pier presently being used by its owners as a leisure area with full access and views onto the impressive Bandon River flowing to Kinsale. A truly signature home which offers much more than this writer can relay in a beautiful natural wooded setting close to both Innishannon and Kinsale and within easy direct short driving distance of Cork International Airport and City. Viewing is strictly by application only, private and comes highly recommended as this truly is a property that requires viewing to be fully appreciated.
