DescriptionERA Downey McCarthy are delighted to present to the market this detached five-bay two-storey period property, built c.1820. This was once one of the most beautiful houses in Cork city and deserves to be again. This architectural gem offers unobscured views over the River Lee, Pairc Ui Chaoimh and The Marina. A magnificent property could easily be returned to one of Cork's finest trophy homes or equally a company HQ (subject to PP).
The property currently has a single-storey crenellated, single-storey former entrance bay to west and single-storey screen to the east, hipped slate roof with coupled rendered corbelled chimneystacks and cast-iron gutters on overhanging eaves. Smooth rendered walls, square-headed window openings with label mouldings and limestone sills. Trefoil window heads visible to ground floor, square-headed door opening to crenellated porch. Set in its own grounds the property is accessed via a bridge servicing 5 other properties which was built at a cost of c. €12 million.
Formerly known as Bellvue House, Carrig House retains its symmetry and graceful proportions, despite its derelict condition. The high and wide roofline still dominates the Lower Glanmire Road and the building continues to make a valuable contribution to the surrounding area. The tall grouped chimneystacks, render detail and carved trefoil headed windows are among the many surviving notable features.
Planning approval was received from the Cork City Council on the 31st January, 2018. The total gross floor area of the completed building will be in the region of 6,000 sq feet.
