A period property on an exceptional site, the cliff offers breathtaking views along Tramore's golden stretch of sands, all the way to Brownstown Head.
Extended to add a substantial accommodation wing, both building and site have obvious potential for a variety of uses, or simply to be remade as a prominent and unforgettable home.
The original core of The Cliff has all the hallmarks of a classic Irish period country house. It would have stood on its prominent site for more than a century, commanding views along the strand, and across the town and the bay. Perhaps the home of a wealthy merchant, or the country house of a landowner, brought to Tramore by the opening of the railway in 1853, the site alone would have made this a very special spot.
Over the years, the property has been extended and altered. There is a sun room off the original building to one side, and a large accommodation wing to the other. This brings the total number of bedrooms at The Cliff to twenty four, many with en-suite bathrooms.
The building had been in use as a Retreat, and where better to find a calm mood of contemplation than in such a breath-taking place. This part of the property needs upgrading to bring it up to today's standards, or you might want to start from scratch and create something truly spectacular to make the most of such an extraordinary site.
With that in mind, the period house is ripe for renovation, and, subject to planning, you can have a home to conjure with, whether as a period restoration or a contemporary classic. Overall there is 677sq.m (7,287sq.ft) on a c0.38ha (0.94acre) site.
One of the most special things about the house is its aspect. From many rooms, and from much of the grounds, you can forget the world around you, as you enjoy uninterrupted views of one of the most renowned scenic spots in Ireland's Ancient East
The current layout of the Cliff gives accommodation over three floors. On the ground floor, a central spine runs the length of the house, with a wide hallway in the original period building leading from the breakfast room / sunroom, past t ...
