A property of this calibre does not come onto the market often so Barry Auctioneers & Valuers are delighted to present Gort, Monkstown, Co.Cork. With panoramic sea views this amazing property, built c.1840, provides the perfect opportunity for families to buy a truly special property in a highly sought after area. Gort is a large extended 5 bedroomed semi-detached property built as part of a series of seven pairs of houses set along the waterfront overlooking Monkstown Bay. These semi-detached houses form an integral part of Monkstown’s character. This 2390 sq ft period family home offers large rooms, high ceilings, bay windows, and a good BER rating of C2. Gort has undergone external modernisations in recent years, having its exterior fully wrapped to greatly improve insulation. The accommodation offers 5 bedrooms, 4 bath and 3 living rooms plus kitchen set over 3 floors with additional rooms in the basement. The property would benefit from internal modernisation. Providing stunning views of the water the front terrace overlooks a large, lawned garden with private driveway and off road parking, while the rear entrance, with its’ stepped down garden, offers a sizable garage to store a car or boat as desired. Situated in the heart of Monkstown village, just a 20 min drive to Cork City and Cork Airport, Gort is within walking distance of the many local amenities including: Cork Harbour Marina, Sailing Club, Golf Club, Tennis Club as well as local churches, school, restaurants and bars. We are confident that this truly magnificent period property will attract a lot of interest. Viewings are by appointment only. For more information contact Der O’Riordan on 085 104 9920.
