Property SummaryWhat an enchanting house sympathically restored with a contemporary edge, simply divine. No. 3 was built in 1860 for the Royal Army and Navy and has that air of grandeur about it. It is a 5 bedroom/ 4-bathroom 3 storey semi- detached Victorian residence located in the lovely location of Rushbrook. One is minutes from the train station, schools, tennis club, sailing club and Cobh town itself.
The front of the house has a pedestrian entrance from the road below and a carport, garage and steps to the rear of the house. There are two sets of couplets in Prospect Villas and all are different. There is a courtyard to the rear and a small landscaped garden to the front. The views are of Monkstown and get better as you travel up the house.
The entrance hall I think the main feature along with the staircase and stain glass window on the return. All the original features are intact, pitch pine floorboards, new double-glazed sash windows, original fireplaces, cornicing and centre roses and recessed double doors between the two-reception room. One of the reception rooms has French doors bringing you out on to the patio and garden to the front which is south west facing the best orientation.
Briefly the accommodation layout is as follows: Impressive front door complete with fanlight, tiled entrance hall, store room off it, 2 reception rooms complete with stove and open fireplace, kitchen and dining room, utility room with the back door to the gated private courtyard where during the summer time you get the evening sun.
On the return you have the guest loo and then the first floor has 3 bedrooms (one ensuite) and main bathroom complete with claw foot bath.
Second floor has 2 bedrooms and a Jack and Jill bathroom and one of the bedrooms has a built in store room.
The house is in super condition and ready to walk into, there is nothing to do but enjoy the house. There is a new gas heating system with a Combi boiler so all is outside hence no tank in the house.
An absolute must to see.
