It is approx. 0.3 acres of private mature gardens just on the edge of Cobh Town and dating from c. 1880. This fantastic home is located at the end of a private cul-de-sac and only a 2 minute walk from Rushbrooke Train Station. There are many modern conveniences you would expect including a new kitchen, underflooring heating, new gas heating system and much more.
Arriving, you will enter a tarmacadam driveway with a large car port to the right and short walk down a paved path to the front door. Entering through the front door you will see the main hall with its lovely original pitch pine floors, high corniced ceilings and just beyond the beautiful stairwell to the first floor. Just to your left is the bright sunny sitting room, which is a large room with its original Victorian fireplace, again lovely pitched pine flooring and original corniced ceiling. This absolutely beautiful room has French style doors to the south garden that allows light to stream in all day. There are tall sliding doors that divide the Sittingroom from the Diningroom, which is equally as big.
This impressive dining room has an original fireplace with large windows overlooking the rear garden. It could also be used as a another lovely livingroom if required.
Crossing the wide hall you will then enter the kitchen/diningroom. This is well proportioned and has a very stylish fully fitted contemporary kitchen with island and an extensive range of appliances. From this prospective there are south facing views of the garden and the harbour beyond.
Further down the main hall you enter the spacious back hall with the guest WC and huge utility/pantry just off it. There are good quality kitchen units installed in the utility room along with a washing and drying machine.
On the first floor there are five large double bedrooms and one single bedroom. The sunny Master Bedroom is located at the front of the house looking south over Cork Harbour. The large back double bedroom overlooking the rear garden well-proportioned and could be used as another reception room, office, or a playroom.
The gardens have been landscaped with beautiful stone walls and various levels of lawn, patio and flower beds. The trees and hedging surrounding the property provide privacy, while there is a good-sized lawn which is ideal for kids to play. In addition there is an ornate garden conservatory on the deck to the front of the house, ideal for entertaining, relaxation or for cultivating plants from sunnier climes. There is also a very handy garden shed, ideal for tool storage.
All amenities are close by including the primary and secondary schools, shops, bus and train services, swimming pool and much more. Fota Wildlife Park only 7 minutes away by car or train and Rushbrooke Train Station with regular hourly service to Cork City centre or Cobh town centre, is only a shortly two-minute walk to the end of the road.
