Property Summary

This is a house I have always admired; it just oozes character and charm and is very attractive to the eye – it looks like it has come out of a children’s fairy tale book. Dating back to the early 1800’s, it was part of the Smith Barry Estate and was used as a guest lodge for Fota Estate.

If you are into sailing or boating, it is absolutely possible to have a moorings outside and see your yacht from the house as you have water access across the road so ideal for the boat lover.

Roscuan is a 2500sq ft detached two storey 5 bedroom house with a landscaped garden wrapping around the house. You have a westerly aspect, so your view is of the estuary which is always a hive of activity, you are on the road into Cobh town itself and literally a 10-minute walk to the train station and a 2-minute drive to the Cross-River Ferry.

Features such as the original fireplaces, half front door, porch, original gothic windows, cornicing, wooden floors, pitch pine doors, tasteful extension to the side,all add to the charm of this house. The garden is ideal for the kids plenty of room to play and very safe as off the road. There are electric gates so very secure. One of the nice things about this house as well is that there is an office off the house with a separate entrance so you can work from home. Plenty of spots to get the sun – it is there till the sun goes down.

In brief the accommodation is – porch with an external half door, inner glass front door, tiled entrance hall, 2 reception rooms on either side, open plan living space consisting of a kitchen, breakfast room and sitting room complete with stove, plenty of doors opening out to the garden. Utility room with access to the courtyard, guest WC& WHB, inner hall with plenty of built in storage. Upstairs there are 4/5 bedrooms (the 5th is currently used as a music room), the master bedroom has an ensuite and dressing room and you have the main bathroom complete with claw foot bath.

All in all, Roscuan is a delightful property and an absolute must to view.
