Savills and Charles McCarthy auctioneers are delighted to present to the open market, The Inglenook, Sundays Well, a spacious period home in excellent decorative order throughout. The property was renovated and refurbished about 2002 and is situated in one of Cork' s most iconic city locations perched above the River Lee with wonderful outdoor space and privacy. Originally built c. 1920, the property has grown along the way and today is set out over three levels with each level maximising space and natural light thanks to its southerly orientation. Visually this property does not disappoint, as it showcases beautiful period feature such as an ornate original staircase, fanlight window over the main entrance door and original solid timber flooring. Upon arrival you are greeted by an unassuming pedestrian entrance door nestled into tall screen walls on Sundays Well Road. Upon entering the grounds of the property, you are immediately struck by the private gardens and river views creating a most unique setting. The main entrance is accessed via steps, which lead you to a large and elevated patio space on the first floor. Here, you will find the official front door. Stepping inside, the entrance hallway is welcoming and bright with a lounge on the left-hand side and study to the right. The study is connected by double doors to the library with the charming addition of a two-sided fireplace between both rooms. Delving further into the property, you will find an additional entrance with a large reception style hallway, a guest shower room and utility room. Making your way downstairs brings you to an impressive and spacious kitchen/dining room. This is a stunning space with a large bow window casting superb light throughout. There are three separate double door openings out to a sunny patio, drawing in a unique harmony between the inside and outside space. There is also a storage room and a guest lavatory on this floor. Making your way back up the gradually ascending staircase to the second floor, you will find a landing from where there are three double rooms and a large single room. The master is awash with features such as a cast iron fireplace, original timber flooring, picture rails and has a bow window from which you can enjoy views of the garden, the River Lee and the Marydyke. A walk-in wardrobe conveniently neighbours the master bedroom. Two of the remaining bedrooms have equally stunning backdrops of the gardens and river while the fourth bedroom is located to the rear with the added benefit of its own mezzanine level study area. The remaining second floor accommodation is made up of a large main bathroom and a WC. The rear garden space can be accessed from both the ground floor and first floor. The patios at both the ground floor and first floor are spacious, laid in limestone and directly south facing making them ideal for outdoor entertaining and dining. The patios work together superbly with the adjacent internal accommodation with the use of double doors and an abundance of sash window glazing. The gardens are most enchanting and peaceful and are accessed by Indian limestone steps from the first floor and with more level access from the ground floor. There is an array of mature planting including mature apple trees all of which surround a level lawn space. Delightful Wisteria planting decorates the Eastern gable while an original stone wall defines clear boundaries. The southern boundary naturally meets the river while ornate caste iron railings and archways stop short of the water, sealing the site beautifully. The garage is accessed from Sundays Well Road via solid wood double doors including a wicket pedestrian door and has space for one car with a shower room to the rear. There is a staircase to the rear that brings you to a mezzanine level floor laid out as a large versatile room incorporating a kitchen and living space with skylights and a front facing window overlooking Sunday' s Well Road. The Inglenook is ideally situated for anybody looking to be close to the convenience of the city whilst living in a beautiful period home which has been renovated and refurbished. The property is well located with UCC and Fitzgerald' s Park a short stroll away while the CUH, Cork City centre and all essential and social amenities are within short driving distance.
