This unique property resides in Cork's ever popular Victorian quarter and is within walking distance of all amenities whilst enjoying the calm of a quiet cul-de-sac. The property has been beautifully designed and meticulously maintained over the years and presents as a truly special opportunity for someone looking for a distinct property in the heart of the city centre.
Bannow Mews sits discretely on its own site hidden behind a screen wall on Cork City's Belgrave Avenue. Stepping inside reveals a spacious entrance hallway with solid timber flooring underfoot and cloakroom storage straight ahead. Making your way through the hall you will pass the guest lavatory and den, which can be used as a guest bedroom. The kitchen/dining room is up next and presents as a stunning room, running the width of the property taking advantage of its elevated position with windows and a large sliding door providing both light and views. The sliding door gives access to a spectacular balcony area that overlooks the city below. A utility room with an outdoor access point makes up the remainder of the ground floor.
Making your way up the stairs, to the first floor, you will find a bright south facing double room, a bathroom and a superb first floor lounge. The lounge deserves special mention as it overlooks the city beneath in truly spectacular fashion, whilst displaying delightful features such as an ornate solid-fuel fireplace and solid timber flooring.
The remaining bedroom accommodation, bathroom, shower room and hot-press are on the second floor. As expected, the higher this property goes up, the more impressive the vistas and this holds true to both bedrooms. Capitalising on their raised position, the skylights have been utilised fully by lowering their natural position to connect to the top of the front facing windows, creating a stunning vantage point from which to enjoy our beautiful city.
From the ground floor, you can make your way down to the garden to find access to a spacious laundry room and office. The office presents as an attractive and peaceful workspace with a sliding glass door over-looking the patio and garden. From here, you will find a large laundry room which could also be used as a home workshop. Here, you will also find an access point to an additional storage space.
Outside, the rear garden continues the stunning nature of this special home. The attractive balcony area is large, faces south, is paved in flagstones and bound by steel railings with a retractable awning overhead. Connected to the dining area, the deck provides for the ideal barbeque and outdoor dining experience. Stepping down to the garden itself one will find a truly spellbinding sanctuary of calm and zen. From here, the property enjoys a pedestrian access point onto Wellington Road. The level lawn is spotted with a myriad of charming flora including cherry blossoms, crab apple and mature fruit trees, beach hedges, and climbing hydrangeas. Original stone walls and timber fencing enclose the gardens beautifully creating additional privacy and exclusivity for this wonderful home.
