If you’re looking for a stunning period property with waterfront views, look no further. This 8-bed, 6-bath country home is currently on the market for a cool €2,950,000.
Ballywilliam House is situated on an elevated site overlooking the river Bandon, just outside the town of Kinsale. This two-storey limestone building boasts a whopping 441sqm of floorspace, and sits on 2.4 acres of land.
The property dates back to 1765, where it was first owned by the Barter family, and has subsequently been owned by various Irish families over the last 200 years. In 1995, it was purchased by American singer-songwriter Tori Amos, who used it as a recording studio and restored the house inside and out. The house even appeared in a music video for the song Star Whisperer, from Tori’s 12th studio album.
The house boasts 8 large bedrooms (4 of which are en-suite), two full-sized bathrooms, an enormous drawing room, and a large dining room, all overlooking the beautifully kept terraced lawns. The fully fitted bespoke kitchen comes filled with premium appliances, and is accessed by a feature entrance hall with a grand cantilever staircase (fancy!)
The property also comes with two covered bespoke garden gazebos, one in the courtyard and one by the foreshore, and even has its own direct river frontage onto the tidal Bandon river (just incase you happen to own a yacht or two).
