A magnificent family home (4,773 sq.ft.) in an idyllic setting with uninterrupted views of Royal Cork Yacht Club, Marina, and Crosshaven Village. Nestled close to Currabinny Woods, this fantastic house has been cleverly constructed with all living accommodation and most bedroom accommodation facing due south over the water.
The house is in excellent decorative condition throughout and bursts with charm and character that belies its true age. There are three attractive reception rooms in addition to the sizeable kitchen and sunroom and all bedroom accommodation is spacious and appealing. The house sits beautifully in the centre of an acre site surrounded by a shelter belt of trees, together with large, magnificent flowering camellias, rhododendrons and hydrangeas which give an all year round colour and interest. This microclimate of a garden was designed by the well-known and much revered Cork gardener Nancy Minchin in the late 1970s. It is one of the few properties with extensive direct water frontage (75m) and a separate, well-equipped, boat house facilitates water launches from the private slipway.
