Two acclaimed homes on 25+ oceanfront acres, half a private island, over
4000ft. of shoreline, two hot-tubs, boat launches and moorings, just off
the famed Ring of Kerry in southwestern Ireland.

Featured on Home & Garden's Fine Living Television, mermaid Isle
is a world-class oceanfront retreat washed by warm crystal waters of the
Gulf Stream in a protected inlet of south western County Kerry, Ireland.
Local legends speak of mermaids living in the private bay, sheltered
between the island, Illaundrane, and mermaid Isle's mainland. The
25+acre experience includes half of that 26-acre island and 12 acres of
mainland, with a bonus 3 additional acres of turbary used to fuel four
turf-burning fireplaces. While dolphins patrol its endless tidepools,
contented seals bask on the rocks, confident of a ready supply of fish. It's
not unusual to be greeted in the morning by a playful otter scampering
down to the sea past one of the two California hot-tubs perched just
above the sea at the 4500+ sq.ft. slate-clad main home, recently built in
the style of a medieval post & beam barn, fitted with centuries-old
appointments, windows and doors, or the ancient fisherman's cottage,
completely refurbished by its present museum designer owner. His other
designs are manifest in most major museums of North America and Irish
monuments and national parks. Both homes, nestled in mature wooded
groves, are oriented so that sun rays and moon beams reflecting on the
bay will clothe your bed, where you'll be lulled by songs of wind and

It's obvious that those who first built the ancient cottage and the
main home loved the sea. South facing windows and sunrooms allow
you to spend days and nights in nature surrounded by sunlit clouds, the
moon and the stars, progressive seasonal explosions of brilliantly colored
wildflowers and all the players on this stage of life: patient herons, silent
swans, screeching oyster-catchers, bobbing mergansers, probing curlews,
hovering falcons, a variety of soaring gulls, sky-diving gannets, snorkeling
cormorants, and curious pup seals. After a swim in the calm clear Gulf
Stream warmed waters of mermaid Isle, your evenings can be spent in
one of the two hot-tubs contemplating dramatic shooting stars or the
lights of Jupiter, Saturn, and Venus, reflecting on the glass-like private
cove's surface below the most pollution-free skies on this planet.
Modern gourmet stainless steel kitchen appliances in both homes
have been tastefully disguised by historic leaded church doors and
panels, or antique copper and great slabs of cedar. You can sit at the
time-honored pitch-pine kitchen table preparing your meals before the
roaring turf fire in a glass faced iron stove set into the original hearth,
complemented with its centuries-old crane and cauldrons. In the Cottage,
a spiraling stairway was carved by a local sculptor from the same stump.
The main home features three mortised stairways. Floor-to-ceiling
antique leaded pastel windows, French casement windows from historic
churches and convents, and massive skylights flood both homes in
warmth and sunlight. The four contemporary fitted bathrooms are clad in
marble and limestone reclaimed from great manor houses. The main
home was designed from an artistic sensibilty with flexible spaces that
may be used for offices, fitness, hobbies, or possibly seven or eight
