A Victorian property with immense potential! - B & B / Going Concern. Robin Hill has been a family home until the mid 20th Century, when it was converted into a rectory then a Guest House & FIne dining restaurant. This unique property originally built by the Rushbrooke Family in 1866 is perched on an elevated position boasting wonderful views over Cork Harbour. The property is currently being run as a very successful 4 star Failte Ireland awarded Bed & Breakfast and also offers holistic treatments / respite breaks to guests. An incredible opportunity for a discerning purchaser to acquire this uniquely beautiful and sensitively restored period residence on a 0.6 acre site set in mature gardens on the outskirts of the historic town of Cobh. It is a haven of peace and tranquility, which can be enjoyed from so many different aspects. A beautiful property in impeccable condition with much of the original architectural features preserved. The present owner has invested considerable time and expenditure sensitively restoring the property. The property also has a self contained 2 bedroom apartment with a spacious lounge and modern kitchen/dinner with private court yard which is adjoining the main building. In addition there is a small 1 bedroom self contained wooden chalet which is currently rented as a holiday let or would make a perfect Granny annexe. There is ample parking at the front of the property . The house is eligible for the period residence government grant scheme to help with upkeep and restoration and has a commercial licence to run a business. Viewing is a must.
