4 Bed Detached House 353 m² / 3800 ft² For Sale
Ever wished for a property steeped in history in an idyllic coastal location and be part of history making through it's very revival? Then the Grainstore could be for you! Built in the 19th Century, it's main function was to store grain for export during the Napoleonic Wars. It was owned by the Evanson family who were noted for their innovation and had a number of other branches in the Durrus area at that time. There are quite a number of such buildings on the West Cork coast, a reflection of times past, pre the Battle of Waterloo when high prices drove grain production in areas not naturally suited for such cultivation.
The property itself is located approximately 1 mile from Durrus village and about a 20 minute drive from Bantry town. With the added benefit of full planning permission for redevelopment, the potential here speaks volumes. Situated along the famous Sheeps Head Way, with notable benefits of tourism, many local attractions and the The Wild Atlantic Way, the revival of the Grainstore is a great opportunity to create a unique waterfront home. Views to the south extend over Dunmanus Bay and south west towards the Mizen. Both Cork and Kerry airports are about a 1hr30min drive away.
