"If you are looking for a REAL retreat, a little piece of paradise, somewhere to which you can escape and leave the modern world behind, a place surrounded by absolutely stunning landscapes and where the sea is metres away, this is a property that will catch your attention," the posting reads.
"All of the rugged beauty of the Hook Peninsula is on your doorstep (almost literally but at a safe distance!). From the living areas you are looking straight out to sea, and across to the Saltee Islands and Kilmore Quay in the distance.
"Booley Bay and Dollar Bay (approximately 8 km away) offer fantastic beach fishing, and the famous Templar's Inn is under 6 km. Loftus Hall is under 2 km away and your local shop is only 3.5 km.
"The house itself oozes rustic charm with a stove in the living room, exposed beams in the kitchen/dining room, narrow stairs to the bedrooms upstairs.
"This is a haven, a place of refuge to restore body and mind, a sanctuary. It will appeal to someone who wants to be 'far from the madding crowd,' who finds peace and tranquility in their proximity to the sea, who enjoys country walks/runs/cycles, country spins in the car, water activities, or just relaxing to the sounds of the sea.
"It is also approximately a 20-minute spectacular cliff walk to the lighthouse where year-round activities take place."
