Savills is delighted to introduce Algonquin, an exceedingly beautiful 5 bed detached home built in the late 1930's and situated in one of Cork most sought after residential areas.
This fantastic property has been spectacularly renovated since 2004 and been decorated to the highest levels. Located on c. 0.72 acres of mature gardens, this idyllic family home has the benefit mature trees and has a spectacular selection of plants and shrubs, providing sanctuary and total privacy.
Approaching this magnificent home, you will see a wide entrance with imposing pillars, long classic gravel driveway and large set down area. Immediately you will be struck by the awesome display of colour from the garden and surrounds.
Upon entering Algonquin, you with see the beautiful entrance hall with a quintessential 1930's feel that has access to all the main reception rooms and beyond.
The sitting room, just to the right, is an impressively grand room with outstanding views of the garden. There is a bay window facing south and wonderful window overlooking the terraced lawns. The decoration in this room is very impressive, with a large ornate Valentia Island slate fireplace as its focal point.
Moving along you will enter the study, which would easily double as another reception room. This wonderful room is again facing south and has a patio door with access to the garden below.
The next is the living room which is open plan to the kitchen/dining room. This is by far the largest space in the house and is a super family space. The floor is an amazing polished concrete and there is a fully fitted contemporary kitchen with a selection of great appliances. In addition, your eyes will be drawn to the large glazed area with sliding patio doors that open the room to the warm south facing veranda. This area is simply perfect for entertaining and gives a great vantage point to relax and enjoy the wildlife in the garden.
There is also a very generously size back kitchen/utility that is idea for catering when entertaining for a large party. The kitchen has a pantry and storage rooms adjacent for additional storage. This floor also has a guest WC.
Ascending the very chic 1930's staircase you will arrive at a wide landing that feeds into the sleeping quarters.
There are five double bedrooms on this floor (two with en-suite!), positioned perfectly overlooking the garden and taking in the bright southern light. The master bedroom is very generous in size and has a walk-in wardrobe, en-suite and take in the view from many vantage points.
Also, on this floor is a very well spec'd out main family bathroom and again more storage rooms.
Adjacent to the main house is the double garage which is ideal as a workshop, studio, or perhaps an office or further accommodation. This was originally used as stables and a garage and is ideal additional storage.
The garden is not overlooked and provides total seclusion, relaxing green space idea for those who love gardens, nature, barbequing and entertaining! There is an exceptional selection of trees, shrubs and flowers, including a mature wisteria hugging the house.
The local area is only a ten-minute drove to the city centre and boasts numerous amenities including shops, great schools, train station, bus service, sports clubs, restaurants and much more besides.
