With outstanding views from Cobh Cathedral across to the mouth of the splendid Cork Harbour. This amazing property was built c.1898 and has endless potential as a prestigious private family home. Over the years Carrigmore House has had several modernisations carried out including double glazed windows, new roof and in recent years oil fired heating with separate zones. It is ready for immediate occupation.

The room next door is the livingroom which is a very spacious room with breath-taking views from the tall windows in the bay. Both east facing rooms have exquisite ornate marble fireplaces installed in keeping with the grandeur of the rest of the property. Just off the livingroom is a conservatory, again with views to the south, that allows access to patio area outside.
The diningroom is located on the southern side and perfectly proportioned for a large dining table and has access directly into the greenhouse at the side of the property.
The kitchen is on the other side of the grand hall and is a large room with a fully fitted kitchen and selection of appliances. There is a guest WC, utility room and a storage room also at ground floor level.
