Originally built in the 1800s, it’s just a short walk from a spectacular beach.

A picturesque home close to Ballybranagan beach, Ballybranagan House is a five-bed property that has plenty of charm. Built around 1820, it’s set on 1.2 acres of grounds, ensuring a peaceful seaside setting.

You enter the home into a large porch with original tiles and windows that look out onto the garden. This leads to a generous entrance hall with original wooden flooring. On either side of this space are two large reception rooms – a living room and dining room, both with original features such as fireplaces, sash windows, and picture rails.

To the back of the house is a kitchen and dining room which has an exposed stone wall, the original rear exterior wall of the home, as well as double doors that lead out to an outdoor deck.

Off the kitchen there is a utility room and WC, while also on the ground floor is a bedroom with ensuite bathroom and double doors that open onto the garden.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, which also have period features including wooden floors and sash windows. The main bedroom has an ensuite, and another bedroom has a shower area.

Outside, mature gardens surround the house including an orchard, lime trees, a cold frame, a vegetable plot and a natural spring well supplying fresh water to the house, and there are also a number of stone outbuildings. 

As well as Ballybranagan beach being just 500 metres away, this home is also just a 20 minute drive from Midleton, and around 35 minutes from Cork city.
