All in the property weighs in at a very spacious 210 sq. m - or (2,260 sq. ft.) In short, the property presents an opportunity to purchase a period residence with plenty of old-world charm and architectural grandeur in the heart of Kinsale town centre with simply great views of the inner harbour and marina.

Building Energy Rating (BERs)

Building Energy Ratings (BERs) give information on how to make your property more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All properties bought, sold or rented require an BER. BERs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your property could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place. The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from ‘A’ to ‘G’. An ‘A’ rating is the most efficient, while ‘G’ is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is ‘D’. All properties are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.
