DescriptionSavills is delighted to present Lee Carrow, an enchanting period property-built c. 1830 overlooking Cork harbour which was extensively renovated and refurbished c.1998.
Lee Carrow is a three bay two storey detached period property which was designed by Irish architects Deane and Woodward, who also designed buildings in Dublin & Oxford. Lee Carrow is in very good decorative order and maintains many original features such as steep gable-fronts with decorative bargeboards, corbelled eaves, high internal ceilings, rendered chimneystacks, lined and ruled rendered walls with moulded string course. Other notable features include segmental-headed window openings with rendered sills and moulded chamfered surrounds throughout.
Upon arrival, you are greeted by a spacious parking area and a large lawn with beautiful mature trees. Stepping inside reveals an elegant entrance hallway with open fireplace, ideal for winter gatherings. The ground floor offers two large reception rooms, dining room, study, spacious kitchen/breakfast room, large utility room and guest lavatory. The drawing room to the left off the main hallway, deserves special mention. It is a truly stunning room that exudes calm and tranquillity whilst overlooking Cork harbour which provides clear views of ships, boats and yachts frequently gliding through the harbour. Making your way upstairs via the gradually ascending staircase, brings you to five double bedrooms, two of which are en suite and the master bathroom. Four of the five bedrooms have beautiful harbour views.
The gardens to the front maintain privacy and are home to a range of mature planting to include a magnificent monkey puzzle tree. Whilst the rear garden benefits from a large private patio area, and a three-tier lawn. This space is entirely private and south facing in orientation providing for sunny BBQ gatherings.
Lee Carrow is situated in the increasingly popular coastal town of Passage West which is located within 15 minutes' drive of Cork city. This location offers easy access to a wide variety of amenities such as well-regarded schools, shops, butcher shop, post office, pharmacy, golf club's and marinas for mooring boats.
It is rare to see such a fine period home come to the open market, it is perhaps even rarer to see one in such fine fettle.
