DescriptionColbert & Co estate agents are grateful for the opportunity to offer this historical home back to the East Cork market. Previously on the market this detached dormer home has been given a face-lift and is now ready for it's new high flying owners.
It has quite historical grounds, as 99 years ago, they hosted a fleet of flying planes, for the US Naval Air Service as they patrolled the North Atlantic in the last-gasp months of the First World War.Cork harbour/Queenstown Cobh had long hosted British naval craft, but less well-known is the fact that after the US joined the war effort, it acquired four 'Ireland Stations' sites under the Defence of the Realm Act, with Curtiss H16 seaplanes and personnel on each.
Queenstown/Aghada was far and away the largest station as well as a training base for the other three at Whiddy, Lough Foyle and Wexford.
By the end of the war, Cork harbour and West Cork housed a staggering 9,000 US naval personnel, Queenstown also had a US servicemen's hospital.
Lower Aghada hosted 28 seaplanes and had over 1,400 men briefly stationed here who did 64 flying missions, hunting down German submarines, between September and November 1918.
Now this home is a peaceful water front sanctuary with plenty to offer its new occupants. Lower Aghada is quickly becoming one of the most sought after areas in Cork due to its vibrant feel and fitness facilities. With the open water at your doorstep (literally) and the peoples walkway to run along, you are spoiled for choice. The neighboring tennis club, rowing club and GAA grounds also make up a real family orientated community. There is an award winning restaurant with Rosie's Bar & Bistro, a Euro Spar in nearby Whitegate and even a chocolate factory where they make Rostellan Chocolate.
