Set against a sea of mature greenery on its 1.1 acre site, this five-bedroom Cork home offers total serenity, and comes complete with a polytunnel and greenhouse perfect for any aspiring gardeners.

The Orchard Field is a five-bed, five-bath property located in the highly sought-after location of Curraleigh, Inniscarra, Cork. Brought to the market by McCarthy & McGrath Auctioneers for €950,000, this house would make the perfect home for any family.

Designed by the award-winning architect Margaret Walsh, The Orchard Field was built in 1994 and extensively extended in 2008 to over 315 square metres. Nestled on circa 1.1 acres, the site is mature and elevated and is surrounded by mature broadleaf trees. This property offers total privacy while being only 6km from Ballincollig, and just a 20-minute spin to Cork city centre.

The property is accessed through electric gates leading to a large enclosure and turning circle in front of a double garage. The professionally landscaped gardens are a mixture of woodlands, lawns, wild meadows and vegetable gardens, complete with an 8 metre polytunnel and greenhouse.

Internally, the property continues its high standards with solid oak and maple flooring, hand painted solid timber kitchen and living areas, and a large south facing balcony. The open plan living and dining area boast large windows that fill the space with natural light and offer stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Here, there are patio doors off to the balcony, and two solid fuel stoves.

The lower floor master bedroom has separate doors off to the garden, with a stunning en suite that contains a large bath where you can unwind as you gaze out across the grounds. There is also a separate shower and underfloor heating.

The studio space, which has French doors that lead to the south-facing patio, would make for a beautiful nursery or a fantastic and inspiring nook to work from home. There is also a utility room with a sink unit, built-in presses and eye-level units, and it is plumbed for a washing machine and tumble dryer.

In total, the property has three paved patios, a detached double garage, and a large wrap-around balcony that truly sets this home apart. A fantastic opportunity for any prospective homeowner, The Orchard Field is nothing short of stunning.

Situated near the Inniscarra Dam, the new owners will have an abundance of leisure amenities on their doorstep such as Muskerry Golf Club, the Inniscarra Sailing and Kayaking Club and the Cork Powerboat and Waterski Club. The property is located 5km from the Inniscarra Community Centre, a 45-acre facility incorporating Inniscarra GAA, Camogie Club as well as a community hall, playground, pitch and putt course and Muskerry Rugby Club.

Currently on the market for €950,000, you can arrange a viewing today through McCarthy & McGrath Auctioneers, or take a full tour of this Cork home through our gallery below…
