No 6 Horsehead is a substantial family home standing on a mature elevated site overlooking the magnificent Cork Harbour, one of the largest deep water, natural harbours in western Europe.The house, a modern period style residence with certain French style influences, stands two stories over garden level, with the benefit of further accommodation in the converted attic space. The house extends to approximately 4,500 square feet on a site extending to approximately 0.43 acres. The gardens previously inclined towards the coast but have been raised by substantial terracing and now offer a level lawned space with terraces enjoying uninterrupted views of Cork Harbour and enhanced total privacy.No 6 is the last house at the termination of a quiet cul-de-sac in a private gated development of 10 similarly styled detached houses. No 6 is a splendid modern house, well suited to modern day living, incorporating excellent family space from the garden level to the superb reception rooms and study on the first floor, to the three main bedrooms on the second floor and on up to the converted attic space. The gardens are well defined and protected by excellent fencing with hedging to the rear and electric gates and rendered walls with railings over to the front.The development was undertaken following the grant of planning permission in 2001, for part of the gardens and grounds of Horsehead House. A fine Tudor Revival villa, which was built at a time when coastal living was growing in popularity, for John Craig, the Bank of Ireland's Cork agent. Designed by Sir Thomas and Kearns Deane in a fashionable picturesque style, it is an excellent example of their domestic work. The original house, on a reduced garden area, happily retains much of its original features and gives presence to the infill development. Samuel Lewis in his 'Topographical Directory' described it as 'an elegant mansion in the Tudor style of architecture, situated amidst beautiful scenery'.No 6, being part of the main development of 10 individually designed detached houses has been modified to offer the very comfortable family residence. The full upgrading of services, remodeling of the garden, and rearrangement of the accommodation has been undertaken with great care and no expense spared using the very best of systems and materials.Turning off the Cork to Passage West Road into the gated development, one continues past similar large, detached houses and the original Horsehead House, arriving at the electrified gate entrance to No 6. Immediately one is aware of the tranquil location and coastal aspect of the house and gardens.The house is surrounded by wrought iron railings and bracken Tobermore paving. A flight of steps with wrought iron railings, rises to the front door from the parking area suitable for up to three cars in front of the double garage on the garden level.Entering the front door, the hall with impressive mahogany and glazed staircase, gives access to the living room, study, and drawing room. The living room with triple aspect, is a sumptuous living area with Arriaga, black Abanilla stone fireplace and thermostatically controlled gas fire. The bifold glazed French doors, lead out to the adjoining raised balcony, with composite flooring and glazed walled surrounding. To the rear of the stairs is the private study, with recessed lighting and uninterrupted views of Cork harbour.
