Description

  • Sale Type: For Sale by Private Treaty
The development at Atkins Hall is synonymous with Cork. Designed by local architect William Atkins in 1846, and taking 5 years to complete between 1847-1852, this building is now home to a number of individual homes ranging in size from 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms. It is particularly prominent and eye-catching, set on a height overlooking the river Lee, on the western outskirts of the city. The development was originally built as three separate blocks and in 1861 was further extended to create additional accommodation for its use at the time. Fine craftsmanship is evident in the stone carving, and particularly in the window and door openings. The high level of detail in the design creates a lively series of facades, as well as an interesting roofline. Encased and wrapped in this impressive limestone building of Atkins Hall is No 108, a beautiful ground floor two bedroomed apartment offering 645 Sq. Ft. of space. This home has been lived in by its owners for a number of years who are now reluctantly parting with it as they move to pastures new. This home is light filled in every room and as a ground floor unit has accentuated floor to ceiling height throughout which enhances its space further. Painted in the same colour scheme room by room this home allows for its next owner to move in and set up with ease. The property offers an open plan lounge/dining room with a galley kitchen tucked away behind it. The beauty of the feature window in the lounge/dining room cannot be overstated and needs to be seen to fully appreciate it as well as the commanding southerly views across the river Lee from it. The kitchen has its own windows giving natural light and could be closed off should a discerning purchaser wish. Both bedrooms are double in size with the main bedroom benefitting from its own en-suite. A full family bathroom takes care of the second bedroom and guests. The grounds around Atkins Hall are particularly mature and offer expansive lawned areas for recreation or after dinner strolls. Limestone benches are strategically placed to take full effect of the views enjoyed from this scheme. It offers plenty of parking for all. The location of this home on the Lee Road gives a convenience often understated or appreciated. There is a public footpath the entire way from this home to the city centre meeting plenty of cycle routes on the way. In the opposite direction a public footpath and cycleway will lead you to Wilton with its shopping centre as well as CUH and MTU beyond. College Road with The Bons Secours Hospital as well as UCC are all within strolling distance of this home. If the relaxation spaces within the development was not enough the Mardyke Arena as well as Fitzgerald's Park are on the doorstep for all to enjoy. As you leave here and turn left, the leafy walk along the country road looking out over the Lee fields is sure to become a regular habit when living here. Viewing is highly recommended.
