The property is situated on a unique elevated site of approx. 10 ha.(24.7 acs.) overlooking Cork City. The property is reached via a sweeping estate drive off Middle Glanmire Road and benefits from spectacular views across Cork City and beyond. The subject comprises a range of period buildings including the main Ennismore House, gate lodge and coach houses totalling some 2,936 sq. m. (31,603 sq. ft.). The buildings date from the early 19th century together with more modern extensions all of which are well maintained and offer redevelopment or refurbishment opportunities, subject to planning permission. The original "Ennismore House" is an imposing two storey over basement residence built circa. 1824 by the Leycester family, a merchant family who wished to have a house with views of ship movement in Cork Harbour. The house was originally called 'East View' as it provided extensive eastern views of the harbour and evolved over time to become known as "Ennismore House". Ennismore House totalling 2,418 sq. m.(26,027 sq. ft.) briefly comprises 39 bedrooms, numerous reception and conference rooms together with ancillary dining and bathroom facilities and on-site car parking. Although the main property has been altered and extended over the years many of the original features still remain. The house is set amid mature parkland and offers pleasant amenities such as a walled garden and tree lined walking trails. The Coach House totalling some 463 sq. m. (4,983 sq. ft.). sits on the northeastern corner of the site and can be accessed via Colmcille Avenue and comprises an attractive courtyard coach building again offering further development potential and is suitable to number of end uses. The surrounding land is undulating with a southerly aspect and of good agricultural quality offering future development potential.
