It is situated on approx. 40 acres of grounds whilst being located within 10 minutes' drive of Kinsale Town. A rare combination indeed.
Renovation works included re-wiring, re-plumbing, newly laid floor on the lower ground floor, installation of new boilers and solar panels which provide hot water for the main house as well as the installation of new bathroom suites and a sauna room. A new steel framed machinery shed (40ft x 40ft), complete with roller shutter doors was also constructed in an adjacent field.
Glendooneen House is accessed via a discreet entrance which benefits from electric gates. Here you will find a detached two bedroom gate lodge, which was built in 1830, renovated in 1999 and in good order. A gradually ascending driveway sweeps through a tree lined avenue, arriving at a spacious gravel driveway which provides enough parking to accommodate a substantial gathering. From here, you begin to get a sense of just how private this property is. You are surrounded by open green areas and mature trees that collect to shelter the site and house.
On entering the main house, you find an inviting and spacious outer hallway with an 11'10'' high ceiling. This hallway leads to an inner hall towards the rear where a beautiful
staircase is revealed. On this floor, there are two generously proportioned, bright and spacious reception rooms overlooking the front lawns. You will also find a west facing family room with French windows, leading on to a large patio, with two grass terraces beyond. This floor also has a Chef's
kitchen, breakfast room, and guest WC. Making your way upstairs to the top floor you find four large double bedrooms, all with en-suites, a separate sauna room with shower and a WC.
The lower ground floor, which can be independently accessed and used as a separate apartment, has a kitchen/dining room, office, linen room, wine cellar, and two more double bedrooms, both with en-suites. Accommodation offers a good balance between living and bedroom accommodation and is in excellent decorative order throughout. There is also
a laundry room with two 10 kg washing machines and two 10 kg dryers. Stepping outside into the grounds you encounter an oasis of calm that transports you to another time. The stable yard with 4 original stables, coach house, tack room and overhead hay lofts is on the East side of the house. The yard also has a separate pillared access point off the main driveway.
You may also access the machinery shed from further along the driveway. The acreage is largely made up of woodland
which offers immense road frontage ensuring privacy and security from the main road. The 40 acres also offer private
open spaces and incorporate a former gardener's cottage built in 1834 now a ruin, with planning potential for an additional dwelling.
Glendooneen House is a rare open market offering. It comes to the market as a renovated period property on substantial
grounds which envelope the main house offering absolute privacy. The grounds themselves hold further development
potential and all this is within 10 minutes' drive of the world famous town of Kinsale.
