Inside this modern contemporary Cork home on the market for €595,000

Inside this modern contemporary Cork home on the market for €595,000

Found within the unique coastal woodlands of the Ardnagashel Estate, this beautiful five-bedroom home is surrounded by nature.

Set across 1.5 acres of lush green countryside in Co Cork, The Black Hare is a hidden retreat from the outside world. A stunning example of classic design, the property has been extensively renovated with modern and contemporary upgrades to transform it into the most comfortable family home. 

Taking advantage of its peaceful environment while still maintaining the ambience of its unique and historic estate, you enter the property into the entrance hall which has been fitted with wooden floors to bring warmth to the room.

The same wood flooring continues into the sitting room where you’ll find a Charnwood wood-burning stove. This opens onto to the sunroom/dining area which is flooded with natural light thanks to several large windows.

Further inside is the kitchen. Bright and airy courtesy of two large windows and a skylight, the room has plenty of storage space with both open shelving and closed cabinets lining the walls. The kitchen also has a NEFF oven and a Franke 3-in-1 tap which provides hot, cold and boiling water. 

Each bedroom of the property features its own unique interior design and luxury ensuite, with the benefit of underfloor heating. All rooms have large windows to maximise the superb garden views. 

Outside, the grounds comprise 1.5 acres laid out in lawns, specimen trees and shrubs. A gravel entrance drive leads up to the house which is surrounded by woodland including unique Chilean and Mediterranean Myrtle and many other trees typical of the area. The 1850s stone archway is another defining feature of the estate. 

Conveniently located on Ardnagashel Estate, property owners have direct access to the sea via a right-of-way through a meandering wood pathway. Situated within four miles of Glengarriff village and five miles west of Bantry town, the famous Garnish Island Arboretum is also nearby as is Cork Airport, which is approximately one hour away.
