IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a home that’s made for entertaining and is sure to be the go-to for any social gathering, 6 The Hermitage in Glanmire, Co Cork could be just the property for you.  

Measuring 4,500 sq ft and on a 0.5 acre elevated site, space will never be an issue at the six-bedroom house. It comes to the market in turn-key condition, allowing its new owners to move in and begin enjoying themselves straight away.

The most impressive feature at No 6 is the indoor pool, games room and bar. The pool area is bright and spacious, with floor-to-ceiling windows and vaulted ceilings. The pool measures 6m x 2m and has recently been refinished.

There’s plenty of space to entertain in the games room, and two seats at the bar – so no need to fight to get the bartender’s attention. There’s also a self-contained bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom, and walk-through storage in this section of the house, making it the ideal spot for any teenagers in the family.

As for the rest of the living accommodation, the main family room is the heart of the home. This room certainly makes a lasting first impression, with exposed beams, a vaulted ceiling, solid wooden floors and an eye-catching mirrored wall. Floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the west-facing grounds, while double doors open to a patio area.

There’s also a smaller, separate family room down the hall with a large fire for cold winter nights in. The kitchen and dining room is L-shaped and has plenty of storage space, with floor and eye level presses completely covering one wall. There’s room for a dining table to seat at least six, while a south-facing breakfast bar looks into the pool room through a bay window.

For those who are working from home, there’s a dedicated home office away from the rest of the living areas, meaning you won’t be tempted to head into the games room before your 10am meeting. 

There are five double bedrooms on the first floor, with a walk-in wardrobe and en suite bathroom in the master bedroom. This bedroom also benefits from a large bay window with a seating area for your morning coffee.
