Rock Castle offers a rare opportunity to acquire a waterfront period property in a spectacular and secluded setting with direct access onto the Bandon River.
There has been a building on this site since C.1300 AD starting with the Carrigonassig Castle. The current residence dates from C.1800 AD and was constructed, in part, using stone from the original castle.
Rock Castle lies only 4 kms south of the picturesque Innishannon village, a ten minute drive from Bandon town, a fifteen minute drive from Kinsale town and a twenty minute drive west of Cork with its Airport, train and ferry links.
Incredible! Over 140 metres of river frontage together with boathouse and private deep-water jetty. Very secluded and not overlooked. On the opposite riverbank is Shipool Wood. By virtue of its setting this is a very nature orientated property offering a prime seat to view otters, Kingfishers, heron, seals and other species of wildlife that inhabit the river. And all of this within 20 minutes of Cork.
Dating from C. 1800 Rock Castle offers large light-filled rooms with emphasis on the wonderful river views. A later 2 storey extension to the rear and the sunroom give a total of C. 3000 sq. ft. and a modern kitchen, master-ensuite and oil fired central heating together with original features such as the sweeping staircase, cornicing and 'candle alcoves' bring out the best in this character-filled residence. There is an option of a further 2.5 acres of land.
