Savills is delighted to present Mount Verdon House, a beautiful 5 bed Georgian period home situated in Cork city centre with outstanding city and river views.
This amazing property was built c.1830 and has endless potential as a prestigious family home, possibly with a home office or additional accommodation optional, if one wishes.
Mount Verdon House can be accessed from Wellington Road, on the northern side, with pedestrian and garage access for a car or from Summerhill North, on the southern side, with pedestrian access available here.
Upon entering the property through the main entrance door, you are greeted by a large hall with a stairwell to the first floor and beyond this access to the main reception rooms.
The living room is located on the western wing of the house is a large space with patio doors leading to the garden, fantastic southerly light and breath-taking views of the city. Next to the room is the grand dining room which has three large windows again allowing the viewer to enjoy the sun and vista.
In the centre of the house overlooking the entrance courtyard is the kitchen with its Stanley Oil Range. There is a guest WC also conveniently just off the main hallway.
On the first-floor level is the master bedroom and bedroom two (en-suite), both taking advantage of their southern position and a great vantage point to observe the world go by outside. Both rooms could potentially be used as reception rooms if one chooses.
Also, on this floor is bedroom three and the main bathroom.
Accessed from the main entrance hall is the basement level, which has the lower hall and two very handy rooms with direct access to the southern garden.
On northern wing of the house is additional accommodation that has been rented out in the past but could very easily be incorporated back into the main house.
The ground floor of this annex has a large kitchen and separate sittingroom with a guest WC and access to a private yard. While on the first floor there are two double bedrooms and a main bathroom. The annex is accessed generally from the entrance courtyard from the Wellington Road side.
Mount Verdon House will make an awesome city centre family home with the added possibility of allowing one to work from home if one needed to. Alternatively, the annex can be kept separate from the main house and possibly offered as rental accommodation or even used for Air B&B.
Patrick Street is only a 500m stroll away and within close proximity to the Montenotte Hotel & the Ambassador Hotel. All other amenities are close by including the best schools, shops, bus and train services, sport clubs and much more.
