Cronody is a superb detached family home of approx. 2,370 sq. ft. positioned on approx. 1.3 acres of stunning gardens designed by award winning landscape artist Brian Cross, well known for designing the Millennium Garden at the Port of Cork. The array of luscious plants, trees and shrubs are complimented by the gorgeous backdrop of the views over the River Lee and Inniscarra Lake.
This truly unique property is bursting with charm and character which is immediately evident upon entering. There are two vehicular access points and through both you are greeted with a beautiful, original stone barn that has excellent scope for conversion to garage, home gym, office and much more (subject to planning permission). There is a large driveway to the front and side of the house offering ample parking for several cars.
The house itself was built in 1987 and has been lovingly maintained and upgraded to an excellent standard by its very house-proud owner. Throughout this fabulous family home are beautiful features such as the extra wide, reclaimed church doors, 11ft ceilings in the lounge, solid fuel stove with extra-large red brick surround and much more.
Accommodation is very well balanced between reception rooms and bedrooms. On the ground floor is the entrance hall with WC. To the left is the large, dual aspect lounge which is ideal for entertaining with the hallway then leading to the right of the house where you will find the kitchen / dining room which is interconnected with the living room. The house was cleverly designed with all living accommodation to the front to maximise the natural light from the southerly aspect and stunning views.
On the second floor are three generously proportioned double bedrooms (one ensuite) recently upgraded family bathroom as well as a study and home office.
The property is ideally located in the tranquil village of Dripsey and 15 miles from Cork City making it ideally suited for those who wish to purchase a home in a rural setting but within easy commuting distance of all amenities and services.
