Savills is delighted to present Dunsland House, an elegant period family home in fine fettle set on a mesmerising C. 21 ha / 52 acre parcel of land with stunning views across Cork Harbour and a choice of uses. The property comes to the open market available in one or more lots.
The main property is accessed via a grand limestone recessed entrance with cast iron gates and railings. Here at the entrance, you will also find a pretty two storey 2 bed gate lodge with its own private gardens. Making your way up a winding tree lined avenue, you begin to get a sense of something very special awaiting you at the top of the driveway. Rounding the final bend the main residence comes into clear view, an elegant early 1900's property standing proudly on its utterly private grounds.
The current property replaced the original Dunsland which was burned down in 1920. Today Dunsland sits proudly on a level site where immediately outside its front doors you will find a large gravel parking area with level lawn and the most magnificent treeline framing the southerly landscape below. An ancient folly once used as a lookout remains in the corner of the front lawn, a reminder of the historical significance of this great Cork property.
Upon stepping inside the solid wood double doors, you are greeted by a beautiful reception hallway with 11'1 ceiling height. The majority of the accommodation is accessed off the main hallway. Each room is private, well-proportioned and offers individual aspects of the grounds.
The attic level offers two further rooms. From the front door to the rear door, the property exudes a sense of calm and tranquillity this is in part thanks to the property being cocooned by its own grounds which offer bird's eye ...
