Featuring bright rooms and mature private surroundings, the unique selling point of Carrigrohane Lodge is the elevated position commanding panoramic views over the meandering River Lee and the surrounding countryside. With a peaceful river level railed garden this sale offers the peace and tranquility of a private river setting yet is minutes’ drive from the City centre and all amenities.
The accommodation over 2000 sq ft / 185.8 sq m includes five bedrooms (the master bedroom has a bay window with panoramic elevated views over the river and surrounding countryside), a drawing room, dining room, kitchen, guest W/C, basement, laundry room and study/games room. The house is approached through a pair of large cast iron automatic gates with stone pillars. The private grounds of c. 2.3 acres are bounded by high walls and hedging with a profusion of mature trees and shrubbery with flower bed borders. The main garden affords a full southerly aspect and is laid out in grass lawn with gravelled driveway and ample parking space.
There is a large yard with outbuildings to the western side with potential to take advantage of the wonderful elevated views over the meandering River Lee and surrounding countryside. Numerous wooded pathways lead down the gentle slope to the railed-in riverside lawn which is a lovely peaceful area and the perfect ‘get away’ spot for relaxing, watching the river meander by, herons a plenty and the occasional splash of a leaping trout or maybe a salmon.
Nearby are schools, shopping centres and all the amenities of Ballincollig Town, Cork City Centre is less than 20 minutes drive away, Bishopstown 10 minutes, and the main South Link Road is 5 minutes away with direct access to Cork International Airport, Ringaskiddy, and all main routes East and West.
