Introducing Highworth House, a beautiful detached home of approx. 2,500 sq.ft. (232.3 sq.m) that sits proudly on a site of approx. 0.33 acres in a most tranquil setting in Carrignavar.
The property is rich in history with ties to many Gaelic scholars, professors and poets; the brothers Thorna, Eamon and Doncadha O Donoghue, who are still revered and well remembered in the area. President de Valera unveiled a plaque in their honour in the centre of Carrignavar in 1962. Other names associated with the property include some of the most famous and important in Irish history such as Padraig Pearse, Douglas Hyde and George Moore.
Access is via a gated driveway which offers ample parking for multiple cars to the front and side of the house. Upon entry, the property immediately impresses with the mature site that blends in seamlessly with its surroundings and the gorgeous stone exterior of the house itself.
Internally, the current owners have invested a considerable amount of time, effort and money since acquiring the house in 1999 to make it the elegant and comfortable family home that it is today whilst retaining the charm and character of a rustic country farmhouse.
Accommodation on the ground floor consists of two porches, an entrance hall / dining area with reception rooms to either side, as well as a kitchen, utility room and WC. Moving upstairs, there is a large mezzanine area, four double bedrooms (two of which are en-suite) and a main bathroom.
The location is idyllic, enjoying the peace and tranquillity of countryside living whilst still only being minutes from the village of Carrignavar for all your essential amenities such as shops, schools, & church and is approx. 15km from Cork city.
Viewing is essential to fully appreciate all this wonderful home has to offer.
