Description'Kildarra Lodge' is both elegant and a truly impressive architect designed 3/4 bedroomed (3 bedrooms ensuite) private residence built sixteen years ago and extends to 283 square metres (3,046 square feet). It consists of very high quality accommodation with excellent attention to fine details, both internally and externally. This exceptional dwelling was designed to provide a wonderful sense of light and space throughout and incorporates many quality features with well-apportioned rooms, upstairs lounge, and superb floor to ceiling heights. Large feature windows maximize the flow of natural daylight into the house throughout the year. The spacious entrance hallway opens onto to a striking feature staircase with glass and stainless steel balustrade. The layout and design of the ground floor makes it fully accessible with its open plan style and double doors opening onto the garden with a beautiful stone water feature. Overall, this is a very well designed modern home which is highly functional. It is as new, meticulously maintained and presented and comes with the benefit of underfloor heating at ground floor level. Quality fixtures and fittings from start to finish are incorporated into the entire property including the use of Ash wood for doors, architraves and skirtings, and high-end bathroom and kitchen fittings. A distinctive natural slate roof gives the dwelling an exceptional external finish. All of this is situated on an elevated south-facing site in rolling countryside with views over the Bandon river valley. The peaceful setting has all the advantages of country living offering privacy and seclusion on approximately half an acre of mature and professionally landscaped gardens, entered off the public road via a natural stone entrance and automated double gates. This perfect turn-key property is less than a ten minute drive from the picturesque village of Innishannon, some twenty minutes from Kinsale town and just 30 minutes to Cork International Airport and Cork City. Viewing is a must to appreciate the high calibre and individuality of this special residence, by prior appointment only with the selling agent.
