Property Summary

This is a unique opportunity to secure a simply stunning house, in a very peaceful private and secure location, the type which rarely come onto the market in the beautiful, historic harbour town of Cobh, with views over the sea.
Whether your future family home, or as an investment opportunity, this 8 bedroomed house with 5 reception rooms and 6 bathrooms offers well-proportioned, oil central heating system on first and second floors, and bright, airy rooms thanks to the high ceilings and large, original sash/shutter windows… Off the road private parking for 6 vehicles.
No. 2 Beausite is one of 4 period houses nestled in a private terrace located in Rushbrooke on nearly an acre of land. This beautiful property, like its neighbours in the terrace has a shared private driveway and offers picturesque views of Monkstown. It has the added bonus of Rushbrooke train station located a 5 minute walk from the bottom of the garden.
Constructed in the 19th century, this 4000 sq ft house is full of character and was built to last. Substantial living space, combined with high ceilings and original features.
Currently the house is divided into 5 self-contained apartments, originally completed in the 1960s. The house has been well maintained and updated as needed over the years. Like all properties of its age, it would now benefit from cosmetic updates. The house has maintained its original construction as a grade 2 listed building with the roof and original windows in good working condition.
Spread over 3 floors are 7 double bedrooms, 1 single bedroom, 5 reception rooms, 6 bathrooms and a heated laundry room. This semi-detached Victorian residence oozes with character, original features and space.

The house could be left in its current configuration with 5 self-contained apartments that could be rented out. Alternatively, the house could be converted back into its original configuration as one home with some investment.

Currently the 5 apartments are divided as follows: 4 x double-bedroom apartments and 1 single-bedroom apartment. 4 of the apartments share the same front door. The 5th apartment has its own separate entrance, so if one decided to convert the property back to a house the rear apartment could be retained as a granny flat or provide an opportunity to offer either short term or long term rental.

Features include all original fireplaces, bay windows, solid pitch pine staircase, terrazzo tiled floor in the entrance hall, front door, solid pine doors and floors throughout. Every bathroom includes a modern shower, toilet and sink.
