Glandore is a beautiful detached home built in the Arts and Crafts style, that also incorporates Edwardian and Classical architectural features. The house is also thoroughly modern, with floor space of 2500 sq ft/232 sq m, which extends over three levels. It is called after the idyllic harbour village of the same name in West Cork.
A wonderfully detailed residence that blends sustainability with luxury, Glandore will appeal to environmentally-aware homeowners who also understand quality, while its flexible spaces will adapt to every stage of family life. All rooms have smart electrics and zoned underfloor heating, and with concrete floors throughout, there is no need to worry about energy efficiency and sound insulation. The A3-rated property is exceptionally comfortable and also boasts efficient running costs.
Naturally, Glandore is designed to be as secure and private as possible. Features include an electric cast-iron vehicular gate and a separate pedestrian gate on Temple Road, which can be controlled from all of the houses. Further seclusion is provided by Glandore's own large timber electronic vehicle gates and its two timber pedestrian gates. After entering the first of two electric timber doors, a short tiled path flanked by box hedging leads to a sheltered porch - notice its cut Jura beige limestone and period detailing - and the main front door. The second timber door provides a separate entrance to the side passage of the house. From here, one can access a smartly designed self-contained room that can be used as an au pair's quarters, an extra bedroom (ideal for family members and visitors) or a study/home office.
