There’s something just so charming about this house for sale in Cork, located right on the River Lee looking onto UCC.
Some people love a house that is impeccably finished, with all the mod-cons installed and ready to move in. And some of us love a project. This home certainly fits into the second category – and yes, we know the pricetag is €800,000, but we can still dream, right?
A surprisingly innocuous entrance, the front door of this 370-square-metre, split-level home is set in what looks like a concrete wall along the path on Sunday Wells Road, which hides the house from view entirely.
Named The Hollies, the stained glass door brings you through to a beautifully ornate pitched pine hallways with parquet flooring.
The entrance floor leads you to the five bedrooms, with the living spaces on the light-filled garden level. Three of the bedrooms have period fireplaces and one with its own en suite bathroom with a panelled bath.
The main bathroom is also on this floor and can be accessed through the hall or one of the bedrooms. This bathroom also has a bath, as well as an electric shower.
Downstairs, there is a spacious grand drawing room, a dining room, a living room/kitchen, conservatory, TV room and utility. There is so much to play with here, with so many beautiful windows looking out onto the large mature garden and river beyond.
The garden and its river access is the real treat of this house, as well as the period architecture of the house itself. With access right down to the river’s edge looking across to UCC, the garden is well established and has its own shed, boiler house and fuel house tucked within it.
