This impressive period house overlooking Cork Harbour is on the market at €850,000

Large garden, period features, modern facilities, plenty of space and water views. There’s not much more you could ask for a house for sale in Cork.

Just a short 15-minute drive from the centre of Cork City is this unique late Georgian-era family home. The five-bedroom home, on the market for €850,000, was extensively renovated and refurbished in 1998. The exterior includes a number of unusual period features including steep gable-fronts with decorative bargeboards, corbelled eaves, high internal ceilings, rendered chimney stacks, lined and ruled rendered walls with moulded string course.

Through the front door is a large hallway with an open fireplace and ornate detailing. The drawing room to the left has its own vestibule and is the largest room in the house. It includes a large bay window facing onto the front of the house and two more huge windows overlooking the side garden and a similarly grand fireplace. To the right of the front hall is the dining room, also with its own bay window and fireplace.

From the back hall you can enter the high-ceilinged yet slightly more relaxed family room with its own French doors onto the garden, guest bathroom and the study.

In the single-level extension is the kitchen that runs the full depth of the house. The timber Shaker kitchen has a central island and room for a large dining table with a wall of windows and a glass door onto the patio area. From here you can also access the utility and back hall. 

Upstairs are five bedrooms and a family bathroom. The two largest bedrooms, with room for a very large double bed in each, both have palatial ensuites, while the other three rooms are slightly smaller but no less grand in their proportions.

The front of the house overlooks Cork Harbour with a large front garden for added privacy. The sheltered rear garden is south-facing with a patio area to relax in and a three-tiered lawn.
