DescriptionSuperb country house on circa five acres with stunning views set in the unspoilt countryside.
Kilmacsimon House is a delightful 5-bedroomed late Georgian residence accessed via electric gates through a sweeping tree-lined avenue flanked by a sea of daffodils affording privacy and seclusion.
The house c.2500 sq ft. was originally constructed in the late 19th century and is situated on c.5 acres of beautifully maintained gardens surrounded by mature trees. The dwelling is adjacent to the picturesque hamlet of Kilmacsimon Quay and located on an elevated site, giving a bird's- eye view of the Bandon River and surrounding farmlands.
The Grounds and Gardens
As well as lawns to the rear and side of the dwelling there is an array of fruit trees. A hedged in vegetable plot is in the centre of the garden and with very little effort could be returned to its former glory rewarding owners with a bountiful and self-sufficient existence. Adjacent to the vegetable plot is a small glasshouse and four bay poly-tunnel.
Kilmacsimon Quay is a quaint and picturesque small village comprising a boat yard, slipway and a row of terrace dwellings all facilitated by a classic Irish country pub.
