Property Description

Welcome to Villa Lilla, a truly extraordinary property on an elevated seashore oasis of circa 15 acres. Just off the famous "Ring of Kerry" and "Wild Atlantic Way," this unique haven is located between the enchanting towns of Kenmare and Sneem, on the North shore of Kenmare Bay, 2 km East of the Parknasilla Hotel and Golf Course. With an impressive 500 meters of private sea coast, a secluded sandy beach, a sheltered mooring, a boathouse with slip and pier, and the private "Coongar" Island, this property offers a truly captivating and utterly peaceful coastal lifestyle.

The main house, the guest house, the office/farm building and boathouse are all architect designed, surrounded by woods, pastureland and the sea. Additionally, a 20-meter diameter rescue helipad adds a touch of practicality and convenience.

Rising from the 6 meter seashore cliff, the desirable elevation of this property provides breath-taking views, with the three main buildings enjoying an elevated position at 14 meters above high water level, offering awe-inspiring 180 degree panoramic views across the Bay. From this vantage point, witness the sun rising over the Beara Peninsula and the majestic Caha Mountains, and the sun setting over the open Atlantic Ocean.

The surrounding islands and rocks provide sanctuary to seals, dolphins, herons, seagulls, and gannets. Across the lush pastures, you'll encounter ponies, donkeys, rabbits, deer, and pheasants. Ascend to the "crow's nest" viewpoint, at 22 meters, or venture further into the two-acre wood, to reach an elevation of 31 meters above sea-level.

Adding to the allure of this location is its unique microclimate. Protected by the mountains to the northwest and northeast this area experiences higher-than-average sunshine hours over the Bay to the South. This climatic advantage contributes to the growth of semi-tropical palms, shrubs, rhododendrons, montbretia, and fuchsia bushes, a colourful tapestry of flora.

Villa Lilla is right in the centre of the 'Kenmare Bay Conservation Area', ensuring the long term preservation of its natural beauty and tranquillity. The 4 existing buildings on the property provide a convenient starting point for future planning permissions, allowing for the further expansion of this remarkable estate.

The main house and guest house, constructed in 1962, have been meticulously maintained. The boathouse, built into the cliff, was added in 1972, while the Office/Farm Building, was completed in 2009. The main house underwent an extensive modernization, extension, and upgrade in 2019, and now boasts a BER "B2" rating, reflecting its triple glazing, energy efficiency and sustainability.

In summary: Villa Lilla presents a rare opportunity to own 500 metres of unspoilt coastal paradise, with a diverse ecosystem of maritime species, avian life, and woodland creatures. The Kerry 'Dark Sky Reserve' helps to offer a brilliant sky at night and nocturnal wildlife experience. This unparalleled property combines peaceful seclusion, captivating sea and mountain views, and an abundance of natural wonders. With its private beach, waterfront access, and harmonious integration with the surrounding landscape, Villa Lilla invites you to embrace a lifestyle where tranquillity, natural beauty, and modern comfort, combine. it is a rare and timeless natural gem.
