West Cork B&B goes on the market for €2.5 million.

A Victorian house known as The Anchorage has gone on sale in Kinsale, County Cork, for a whopping price of €2.5 million ($2.3 m or £2.2 m).

The seaside home along the Irish south coast has a rich history and, indeed, a rich price tag as it hits the market for any inspiring bidders or purchasers if they are brave enough.

Overlooking Kinsale Harbour, it is undoubtedly one of the most unique properties on the market in Ireland at the minute. Read on to find out more about it.

About the Anchorage – what two million euros will buy you

The Anchorage is a beautiful B&B in Kinsale.

If you are lucky to have just over two million in spare change, here is what you can expect. The Victorian home is protected by sea walls, where you can swim, fish and dive.

It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms and a size of around 220 sq m (2,350 sqft). Historically, it was owned in the 1800s by a British Navy admiral.

It is the end house of a row of three homes as you roll downhill in Summercove, Kinsale. It was also previously owned by Hollywood actor Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, who has featured in the likes of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Scarface.

Recent renovation – upgrading it for the modern day

The home has been subject to renovation, matching it more with the modern day. It is divided over three floors, with the ground floor providing three reception rooms, a luxury kitchen, a study and a sun lounge.

If that wasn’t enough, the ground floor also provides access to the front terrace, which keeps a restful eye over the water below. The expansive windows in the lounge offer breathtaking views of Kinsale Harbour and beyond.

The first floor comes with a master bedroom suite, also providing panoramic views of Kinsale Harbour. Head to the second floor, and there are two double rooms with similar views on offer.

Kinsale – what to do in the local community

West Cork B&B goes on the market in the beautiful town of Kinsale.

Kinsale is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful seaside towns in all of Ireland, so easy access to it certainly adds to the appeal of The Anchorage.

You have enough views of the harbour from your home. As such, you can head to Charles Fort, the Head of Kinsale, or take a stroll through the town to witness the kaleidoscopic colour of the houses in the area.

Kinsale is also known as the ‘gourmet capital of Ireland’, so the foodies interested will certainly rejoice here. Sandycove Beach is a mere eight-minute drive, while the Blue Flag Garrylucas Beach is only 16 minutes away.
