Settled into a fold in the land, Avalon is one of those rare houses that marries cutting-edge contemporary comfort with a sense of ease, peace and relaxation. Commanding views across the sweep of the Kinsale coastline, and the Sovereign Islands beyond, the house has been sensitively designed to welcome you in, and then open up to the landscape, while still offering total privacy.
Working closely with their architect, the owners have created a house where attention to detail is second to none. A slight lift of the roof towards the views in the main living spaces gives a corresponding lift to the spirits on entering, while in the bedrooms, a very subtle reduction in ceiling heights make these cosy spaces for restful sleep.
The focal point of the house is the flowing reception rooms, which encompass entrance hall, with a dining room that leads on to a conversation pit living space / screening room, that is beautiful in summer, and cosy in winter.
Further in, the open plan Siematic kitchen / family room drinks in the arresting views and constant play of light and weather. The Siematic kitchen is kitted out to professional standards with a ‘Qooker' and 'Miele/Gaggenau' appliances finished off with one-of-a kind concrete composite counter tops in Ireland.
Avalon currently has four double bedrooms, including a generous master suite, with a signature ensuite. Here you will find a KOS shower/steam room and a beautiful double bath, to match the views. There are also breakout spaces, including a sitting room and study, that could seamlessly become additional bedrooms if required.
While some of Kinsale's most picturesque spots have been built up over time, Sandycove remains unspoiled. There is a small harbour at Sandycove, where residents are exclusively allowed a private mooring in the Estuary. The community has regular swimmers, and Avalon is just a short walk up the headland from the harbour. This gives the house unrivalled privacy and views, while also enabling a neighbourhood feel. Today's tight planning
conditions make it unlikely that such a house will ever be created again, making Avalon an exceptionally rare opportunity to live an enviable life-style.
