Property Summary

Simply oozing with charm and character No. 1 Prospect Villas was built in 1850 for the Royal Admiralty, one can’t help but fall in love with this semi -detached period residence located in Rushbrook of which was part of Lord Rushbrook Estate. One even has a view of Monsktown from the first floor.

Once inside the house you will be taken aback with the restoration work that has been done where all the original features are intact – stain glass window, restored sash windows, cornicing, shutters, fireplaces, original front door, centre roses on the ceiling. It’s not an easy thing to do, to marry old with contemporary but they have certainly achieved it here. The entrance hall has been tiled but to the old effect, the radiators downstairs are new lookalike cast iron radiators. The kitchen has a real country effect to it and the light in the house is fantastic as you are facing south west and the windows let in so much light even on a dull day.

The other attribute to this house is the garden and the drive. One has 2 pedestrian accesses and a driveway. There is a pedestrian gate on bunker hill and one at the bottom of the garden. The garden itself has great potential, there are raised beds and some nice features in the garden for the garden enthusiast.

The courtyard consists of 2 outhouses and plenty of space to sit out or indeed extend. There is also a small garage where the driveway is.

Location is ideal, Rushbrook train station is literally a 2 minute walk via the gate at the bottom of the garden. Cobh town is a 10 minute walk if that. Schools, tennis club and sailing club are all within walking distance.

All in all, a pure example of what living in a period property is all about.
