Harkin & Associates are delighted to bring new to the summer market a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase possibly the most unique site to come to the open market in Cork City and Cork County over the past decade. This C0.82 Acre site with full unrestricted planning permission ref 23/42080 for an architecturally designed 230 Square meter home. Located between the historic village of Blarney and Tower, just off the R579 adjacent to the famous St Annes Hydro, The Hydro was once home to a 19th-century hydropathic centre, where people would receive therapy aimed to cure ailments of the body and mind using frequent dips into Ireland's first Turkish baths. The elaborate bathhouse opened in 1843 and only closed in the 1950s. At its peak, the Cork facility had around 80 bedrooms, its own farm, tennis courts, a bowling alley and a golf course. This stunning elevated site with a southerly aspect nestles within a mature woodland setting yet with commanding views over the surrounding countryside and into Cork City. Unrestricted planning permission has been achieved for architecturally designed 230sq meter 4/5-bedroom family home. The proposed dwelling is designed to respond positively to the existing context of the site while creating a frontage that addresses the area. The form and architecture of the proposed dwelling are consistent and compatible with the area. The proposed dwelling will form a new identity and contribute positively to St Annes. The external materials of the proposed dwelling make a positive contribution to the locality with its proposed mix of render, slate and stone which will provide a contemporary dwelling whilst respecting the existing context in which it is set. Services on site to include, ESB mini pillar, mains water, and mains gas. Please see our extensive drawings, floor plans and planning permission details. Please see our drone photographs and video.
