This truly South facing waterside property, positioned directly on the shoreline, is located just off the Ring of Kerry/ Wild Atlantic Way. The residence enjoys spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, bunnow harbour and Kenmare Bay. The property is surrounded by tropical vegetation, providing a colourful backdrop to the blissful haven. A stream and waterfall encompass the northern and western boundary of Bunnow House.
Built in 2016, Bunnow House has a contemporary finish designed to blend into the shorefront. The house is on two levels and laid out to take advantage of the southerly views.
The main living areas are on the first floor, with three double bedrooms and further accommodation on the ground floor. Extending to 224.6 sq.m (2,417 sq.ft) of living space, Bunnow House offers modern design and services with direct access to the beach and sea. The finish throughout is meticulous, offering luxury villa living by the sea.
Floor to ceiling double glazing makes the most of the spectacular views. Underfloor heating warms the polished concrete floors and solar panels heat water throughout the house. The bespoke design kitchen at entrance level is characteristically contemporary with top grade domestic utilities, including a Miele built in coffee machine. An open plan dining area leads into a large living room which opens out onto the sun terrace enjoying uninterrupted views of the ocean and surrounding landscape. The evening room provides a peaceful space away from the dining and living areas.
Every area of the house offers privacy. The three double bedrooms on the ground level are accessed down the main stairs in the hallway. Two bedrooms benefit from ensuite bathrooms, including the master suite. There is a third communal bathroom downstairs and a large utility room.
