Contemporary architect designed spacious 3 bedroom detached property tucked away in a private and sheltered 2 acre garden (with room for a pony or tennis court) comprising lawn, shrubs, woodland, fruit trees, a meadow and river frontage (courtesy of the Four Mile Water river flowing along the property's southern boundary) and yet only a 5 minute stroll to Durrus village - shops, post office, bars, restaurants, schools, etc.

Cois na hAbhainn offers the very best of country living with the added bonus of being within walking distance of local amenities - park the car and get walking!
