We are delighted to offer this commanding residence for sale by private treaty. Constructed in 2006/2007 this superbly appointed home (c. 2,200 plus sq ft) has been very well laid out and enjoys 360 degree panoramic bay and mountain views. Designed to cater for another generation of the family, this luxurious residence can easily be a spacious home and workplace or a private home with separate self containing apartment. With two internal access roads and a large two acre site there is a clear scope for further ancillary development works. This modern home with strong traditional influences is comparable with the best quality and settings on the south side of The Sheeps Head Peninsula. Two kilometres from Ahakista pier and a shorter trip to the pub, church and school this is a very sought after setting. We strongly recommend immediate viewing
