DATING BACK TO 1898, Carrigmore House exudes character and charm. 

Located in Cobh in Co Cork, the six-bed Victorian property boasts incredible views of Cobh Harbour and St Colman’s Cathedral.

The house can be accessed from Lake Road and is a 10-minute walk from the town centre, where there’s a daily train service to Cork city.

Carrigmore House is positioned on 1.3 acres of idyllic grounds with manicured lawns, mature trees and shrubs, and a 450 sq ft greenhouse. This space is ideal for those with a green thumb, with grapes currently growing here. The front lawn is south-facing and provides sweeping views of the harbour.

As for the property itself, the accommodation is in pristine condition. Numerous modernisations have been carried out over the years, including the addition of double glazed windows, a new roof and oil-fired heating.

The front door opens to the grand hallway, where 12ft high ceilings, a Victorian tiled floor and ornate centre staircase make for a lasting first impression. To the left is the sitting room, which overlooks the front lawn.

The living room is the heart of the home, where a large bay window provides spectacular views and a beautiful ornate fireplace grabs attention. Just off the living room is the conservatory, which enjoys access to the south-facing patio outside. There’s a large dining room in this section of the house too.

The kitchen is across the hall and features plenty of workspace, although the new owners might want to add their own touch in here. A storage room, bathroom and utility room complete the ground floor accommodation. 

Moving to the first floor, the landing is filled with natural light thanks to a triple-glazed skylight which truly brings the outside in. All six double bedrooms are located here, with two of them overlooking the harbour.

The master bedroom, of course, is the most impressive with a spacious balcony that’s fully enclosed in glass, meaning you can enjoy the views rain, hail or shine. 

Carrigmore House may feel like it’s in a world of its own, but in reality it’s within easy access of schools, shops, restaurants and more, while Cork city is a 25-minute drive away.

Carrigmore House, Lake Road, Cobh, Co Cork is on the market for €575,000 through Savills via Daft.ie.
