DescriptionHave you ever dreamed of the quiet cottage in the country but find it hard to leave your creature comforts? Colbert & Co estate agents have the answer. we are proud to present Mountleader Cottage in Leamlara which is situated just 15 mins drive from Midleton, 30 minutes from Cork City and a mere 10 minutes drive from the M8 Cork to Dublin road. This is accessed by going towards Watergrasshill which again has all the major amenities available.
The house itself stretches an impressive 3,500 sq/ft and that does not include the separate bar which is hidden away at the back of the house. The cottage to front was built in 1960 with the new extension, garage and bar being built on in 2004. This home has a lot going for it and is literally a fairytale adventure for any adult let alone the children. There is everything on this 1.5 acre site from a garden big enough for your won field to hidden doors leading into bedrooms. Everything required for a growing family or even and older group of children is catered for her as there are numerous living areas, 4 to be exact, and privacy is key with all of them. Each room acts as a snug with 2 rooms having stoves in place and the 4th living area is currently being used as a cinema room with pull down screen.
The cottage has bucket loads of character and is where the majority of the present family spend their time albeit the smallest living area, this is mainly due to the fact that it is adjacent to the revamped kitchen and all Irish people like to stay close to the kitchen lets be honest! There are 3 rooms in the original cottage with a main bathroom also which includes a jacuzzi bath.
The modern extension built in 2004 is evident as you leave the cottage as the ceiling height rises and windows expand. The main living area or good room is centre stage in this house with the long windows making it extremely bright and airy. From here you access the other 2 living areas which each leading to a bedroom. this means either could be separated into a granny flat if required. At present it acts as a nice getaway for the older children. Both of these bedroom have ensuites with the main bedroom having 2 walk in wardrobes.
Outside the house the fun continues with over an acre of land to be discovered and enjoyed. The main attraction is obviously the bar which has a pool table, juke box and beautiful bar counter. The entire area around the bar is decked and wraps around to ensure all the days sun is captured. There is even a covered area
This truly is a magnificent opportunity to acquire a magnificent home full of character and comfort. Call Colbert & Co to arrange a viewing on 021 4639557
