Spectacular full length gable windows with stunning views. The two wings of the house provide 10 bedrooms and each has a spacious living room where the gable window look towards Garnish Island and Bantyry Bay. The lush beauty of Garnish Island's famous gardens owe their luxuriance to the benign effect of the Gulf Stream. In the mild climate of the area sub-tropical tree ferns, scarlet fuchsia and giant eucalyptus flourish side by side with ancient oaks and gigantic conifers. Both wings are designed to blend perfectly with the glorious landscape of trees, meadows and water. Built of mellow local stone, the house makes full use of organic materials - even the roof insulation is in natural cork.
