Savills is delighted to present Gryphon House, a magnificent and spacious five bedroom detached home, situated on approximately 0.75 acres of wonderful, mature, and private gardens
Located only 20 minutes from Cork city, 15 minutes from Cork Airport and 11 minutes from Kinsale.
This family home, designed by Alex White (MRIAI) is a short walk from Riverstick village and has most essential amenities nearby.
Approaching Gryphon House, up the long tarmac drive, you will see a carefully considered selection of mature native broadleaf trees and shrubs before arriving at the rather large gravel set down area. There is plenty of space to park and vehicle access to the rear if needed. Before going in you can take in the broad expanse of rolling countryside views and feel relaxed.
Making your way through the private courtyard, over the sandstone paving and steps into Gryphon House, you are greeted with a bright wide entrance hall with high glazed screening above allowing in warm light and illuminating the first-floor gallery overhead. Just off this is a very generous open plan kitchen, dining and living room, an ideal space for entertaining. The bespoke kitchen from Celtic Interiors and further upgraded by Cullen View Interiors, enjoys granite and quartz work tops, immense storage options and a great selection of quality kitchen appliances - sure to satisfy the most demanding cook. Adjacent to the kitchen is very functional pantry and utility room again with custom storage units and attractive solid oak open shelving.
Overlooking the dining area is a double height south facing glazing feature incorporating French doors leading directly onto the decked patio and terraced gardens. This allows this large space to benefit hugely from passive solar gain all day long. Down a level and still open to the kitchen/dining is the triple aspect living room which is a very cosy area showcasing an original French art nouveau fire surround's with antique tiles as its focal point and also good garden and rural views.
Down the long beautifully tiled hallway passing an alternative front door are two rooms, currently used as offices, that could be easily used as double bedrooms. There is also a beautifully tiled guest bathroom conveniently off this hall.
On the other wing of this fabulous home is a sizeable multifunction triple aspect reception room with a magnificent array of south and west facing windows and French doors, warming the room and providing enviable garden views. This very grand room has a large 8kw Henley woodburning stove and is the ideal space for the whole family to relax and unwind in the afternoon and evening sun.
Just off this room is a smaller lounge with feature corner window that could be used for many uses including a studio, playroom, guest bedroom or office. Just both these rooms offer over 550sq ft of bright and flexible space.
Climbing the stairs to the first floor is you will see a large landing area with access to the sleeping quarters. The master bedroom is simply exquisite, with tall south-westerly windows rinclusing an immense corner window showcasing the superb countryside views and magnificent skies. This fantastic room is even big enough to take a suite of furniture and has a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite.
Also on this floor are two other double bedrooms (one en-suite), a gallery library overlooking the kitchen area and a very well fitted out master bathroom which is fully tiled with a selection of quality bathroom wares.
The magnificent garden constitutes a beautiful display of mature native broadleaf trees and shrubs, including Irish oak, Red Oak, green and copper Beeches, specimen Chestnut trees, Golden Ash and Silver Birch, to name just a few. There are sandstone patios and courtyards to three sides off the property allowing you to follow the sun and dine outside throughout the day. Great care has been given to the landscaping with the organic garden laid out with lawns to the front and rear, a lovely decorative water feature near the rustic sandstone patio and plentiful external power points, lighting and water taps.
Overall, this is a very generous, unique property that gives one an opportunity to acquire the ideal family home convenient to all the very best amenities this area has to offer, including river/woodland walks, shops and schools, sports clubs, restaurants, hotels, shops, as well as a public bus stop only 2km from the house.
