A split-level property designed by award-winning architect Margaret Walsh, The Orchard Field can be found nestled away in Curraleigh, Inniscarra, Co Cork. 

Originally built in 1994, the property was later extensively extended in 2008 – now spanning over 315 sq. metres. Accessed via electric gates leading to a large enclosure and turning circle in front of a double garage, the interior accommodation comprises an entrance hallway, studio,, kitchen, open plan living/dining area, utility room, five bedrooms and five bathrooms. 

Internally the property continues its high standards with solid oak and maple flooring, hand painted solid timber kitchen, light-filled living areas and a large south-facing balcony. A bright entrance hallway with cream-coloured tiles greets you as you enter inside.

The kitchen, a warm room with hardwood floors and wooden beams, can be found further inside the property. Highlights include a Belfast sink, stylish cabinetry and a beautiful island with additional counter space in the centre of the room. Several large windows line the walls, allowing plenty of natural daylight to flood the area. 

A cosy stone fireplace and solid fuel stove take pride of place in the open-plan living/dining area. Separated in two, a large wooden dining table and chairs can be found at one end of the room, while three inviting couches can be found at the other. Patio doors connect this room with the outside patio. 

Two of the bedrooms, including the en suite master bedroom, and a bathroom can be found on the lower floor, while the remaining bedrooms (one of which is en suite) and another family bathroom are located on the first floor of the property.

As impressive as its surroundings, the property sits on 1.1 acres of gorgeous greenery in Co Cork. Surrounded by mature broadleaf trees, its location offers homeowners total privacy… and yet, it is only 6km from Ballincollig and only 20  minutes by car from Cork City centre. 

The professionally landscaped gardens are a mixture of woodlands, lawns, wild meadows and vegetable gardens, complete with a 26 ft. (8m) polytunnel and greenhouse – perfect for anyone hoping to cultivate their own crops. 

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 amongst others. 

Other nearby amenities include the Inniscarra Community Centre, a 45-acre facility incorporating Inniscarra GAA and Camogie Club as well as a community hall, playground, pitch and putt course and Muskerry Rugby Club.

Currently on the market for €1,250,000, this is a unique and exceptional property and viewing by appointment is highly recommended. Take a closer look inside this unique Cork home in our gallery below.
