Tivoli House is a timeless classic. The house was designed and built in 1961 by a renowned local architect in an arc formation to maximise the commanding and uninterrupted views over Cork Harbour. The house nestles against a backdrop of mature trees and has a very leafy feel. The entire holding totals approximately 3.15 acres which adds to its attractiveness as an exclusive and very private dwelling. The ingenious design of Tivoli House is very interesting as it allows all of the accommodation to bask in sunshine pretty much all day long as it follows the sun from early morning to late in the evening. Tivoli House is named after the original 18th century house and estate that once comprised the entirety of the eastern section of Lovers Walk to the Middle Glanmire Road and over to what is now Silverspring s. The original estate was sub divided into smaller plots many years ago and this wonderful house sits on a prime section. All of the accommodation on the ground and first floor is extremely light filled and inviting. Large windows and dual aspect rooms ensure that each room provides a new aesthetic no matter which part of the property you are in. It is such a unique property and could in fact be described or furnished in classic or contemporary style. This style of property is hard to find as it can provide you with a blank canvass to accommodate all of your favourite furniture pieces and it has great expanses of wall for art enthusiasts. Tivoli House underwent a complete renovation in 2017. The exterior renovation included; insulating cavity walls /attic; a new roof with thrutone slates; new pvc fascia / soffits / gutters & downpipes; new triple glazed windows /doors, window boards / joinery. The interior renovation now boasts a new heating system; all new wall / floor finishes; a new kitchen; a new utility, all new sanitary ware; large shower areas and a Jacuzzi bath. This first class work is now delivered to a turnkey finish and the house has just been rewarded a B3 energy rating. Since the early 1700 s, Tivoli Estate and Lovers Walk have always had a certain cache. The area has always been an extremely exclusive area and no doubt it will remain so in the foreseeable future. There is an abundance of daily amenities/services close at hand and walks just on your doorstep. From a motoring point of view the city centre is only a few minutes drive away in one direction as is easy access to the Northern ring road and the Jack Lynch tunnel.
