On entering this charming property, you will find a large and inviting lounge which makes a wonderful space to relax in, with a wood burner, large bay window and plenty of comfortable seating. The stylish kitchen is fully equipped for preparing your favourite meals, which you can then enjoy in the comfort of the spacious, light and attractive dining room which also features an oil-fired Rayburn and a sofa. Exploring further, there’s a study and an additional lounge with a TV and open fire. The first of five delightful bedrooms is on the ground floor – a charming twin room.

The first floor is accessed via two separate staircases. The first staircase leads up from the main lounge to two tastefully furnished double bedrooms which share an attractive bathroom with a roll-top bath and two showers. The second staircase leads from the hallway and up to the two final bedrooms: a double and a twin, which share a bathroom complete with a shower over the bath.
Stepping outside, you can unwind with a morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evenings on the charming south-facing terrace which is perfect for viewing stunning sunsets. You can also explore the garden which spreads across 2 acres. The property is close to the A828, with a lovely stretch of shingle beach just beyond, allowing you to enjoy breathtaking early-morning shoreline walks up towards Tralee Bay. Nearby are the historic, moss-clad stones of an ancient Highland burial site, and a ruined stone bothy which was once a blacksmith’s workshop.
