Castle Park House, Kanturk, Co. Cork.
In stately splendour, on c.126.70 acres, sits Castle Park House. Its majestic setting befits a house of importance and its structural magnificence is matched by its parkland surrounds.
Georgian houses were to last and, though in need of restoration, everything about Castle Park suggests a future that is both splendid and secure.
A tree-lined avenue welcomes you to its elevated, Palladian-style front which looks towards Mount Hilary and rolling countryside. Outside, there’s lawn and magnificent mature copper beech, oak and sycamore.
At the rear of the residence is a sizeable courtyard, featuring highly attractive cut stonework. Here, too, refurbishment is required but only little imagination is needed to return it to its previous glory. There’s a 4-span hay barn and sillage shed as well.
Castle Park is a 2-story house, over a large basement: On the ground floor an entrance hall leads through a fanned arch with sliding doors to the staircase hall – lit by a fine arched window off which are two well proportioned reception rooms.
Original features are evident everywhere: Sash windows – complete with shutters; ornate plaster and decorative cornicing; fireplaces of marble, slate and cast iron; floors that are wide planks of solid oak and can be found throughout the house. And the windows radiate light!
The land is excellent – providing sizeable yields – with about 100 acres in tillage (currently winter wheat and spring barley), over 20 acres in grass, grazed by fattening cattle and the remainder being in mature timber.
Castle Park is so much more than ‘just a farm’ in its idyllic situation, just a mile outside the market town of Kanturk, its potential for added value is enormous!
