BARRY AUCTIONEERS & vALUERS are delighted to bring to the market the iconic Lotaville House. This impressive Georgian mansion, on a majestic c.2 acre site, fringes the eastern suburbs of Cork city and overlooks the river Lee. The main house extends to c.700 Sq M and is nestled in a very private elevated site in the woodland between Morans Silversprings Hotel and Flemings restaurant. Built in the early 1800s, the property has maintained many of the trademark features of period homes, including a dramatic curving main staircase, original white marble fireplaces and, exquisite cornicing, sash windows and a round tower. The main house comprises of two floors over a large basement area which has been made entirely into a functioning living space. There are three reception rooms, six bedrooms, a study area, two en-suite bathrooms and a main bathroom. The basement includes a games room, sauna, offices and a bar area. The grounds of the property are equally as extraordinary as the main house. This very private property has a 2 bedroom gate lodge with the main house approached by a meandering, tree lined driveway. The gardens have been 200 years in the making and include an abundance of mature trees and shrubs, including magnolia, oak, pines, copper, beech, laurel trees and large lawned areas. Lotaville was extensively renovated throughout the 1970's and 1980's but now requires an owner to revitalise and breathe new life into this Georgian mansion. The sheer scale of the property will attract both residential interest and perhaps commercial use as a business centre or corporate HQ. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a dream property. Viewing comes highly recommended to truly appreciate the grandeur of this house.
