Additional Information

Additional Information

This detached three-storey georgian townhouse with walled garden has a superb location on the Main Street of Castletownshend village, very adjacent to the pier area on Castlehaven harbour.

Castletownshend is a most unique period village on the West Cork coastline. It boasts many fine period houses, a shop, pubs & restaurant and a wonderful harbour, suitable for all sailing and boating activities.

The White House, which was once owned by a well-known Victorian author, Edith Somerville of Somerville & Ross fame, has been restored and renovated to a high standard. During the course of this, great care was taken to preserve and enhance its many period features.

To the east of the house, there is a well-landscaped walled garden with separate access from the street.

Castletownshend is one of the most sought-after residential locations on this coastline. There are a number of beaches within easy reach, approximately 5 miles to Skibbereen (Market Town), where you can find a host of public amenities, and just a little over 1 hours` drive to Cork Airport.
