No. 12 Cable Terrace is a period Victorian house dating back to the 1870s. It is a two-storey, terraced house with many of its original features still in place, for example the 19th Century tiled floor in the main hallway, window shutters and open fireplaces.
The property has two good-sized living rooms with open fireplaces, one with original pictorial glazed tiles, and a fitted kitchen with appliances, a large wooden, family bench and a Belfast sink. Upstairs there is one very large bedroom and two smaller bedrooms with a linen cupboard, and a most unusual window lighting the landing from the attic floor above. The attic stairs leads to two attic bedrooms, lit by velux windows.
There are new double-glazing sash windows throughout, except in the kitchen and bathrooms downstairs. There is a guest toilet and bathroom with original six-foot bath with electric shower. The pantry is under the stairs. Storage heaters are in place in each of the downstairs rooms and in the spacious hallway with original beautiful 19th Century tiled floor.
Throughout 40 years of ownership, the current owners have kept the house in good condition. The property has an outdoor shed at the rear with deep freezer/fridge, and a good-sized back garden which is currently overgrown. The house shares a magnificent setting with beautiful seaviews and surrounding mountain backdrop. The large play area in front of the house, including the tennis court, is communally owned and safe for children. The grounds are beautifully maintained with myrtle, rhododendron, montbretia and hydrangea.
The ‘designer’ village of Knightstown is beautifully quaint with an original clock and weigh-house as a centrepiece overlooking the fishing harbour. There is direct access from No. 12 to the sea shore with excellent swimming, boating and sailing facilities including mooring and summer water sports all within 5 minutes’ walk, as is the car ferry operating 6 to 7 months yearly.
On the Island there are many places of interest such as the Slate Quarry / Grotto, local shop, laundry service, cafes, The Royal Hotel and The Skellig Experience venue, as well as excellent restaurants within easy reach. The Knightstown tidy towns organization is very active in ensuring that it maintains its award-winning, idyllic appearance. The island has much to offer with lots of activities including fishing, boating, water sports, triathlon and amazing walks all over the island. The sub-tropical gardens at Glanleam House and beach and the lighthouse are uniquely spectacular features. There are also the local Heritage Centre and the Catholic and Anglican Churches at Knightstown.
