Property Summary

Fancy jumping onto your Kayak or boat just outside your property – well here you go. Waterfront properties are so scarce to come on the market, so it is with great pleasure to bring No. 2 Marino Villas to market. Marino Villas is a 4-bedroom detached house with a 2-story unit alongside consisting of a garage on road level and storage underneath. The beauty about this property is that one can get their car off the road. One’s imagination could run away with you with regards to the carport unit – could be used as a carport on the top level and a home office, granny flat or den on the bottom level or the unit could be converted into a self-contained 2 bedroom/ 2-bathroom unit. The house again offers superb potential, and one could make it into a serious pad – picture yourself sitting outside enjoying the activity on the water and the sun all day as the orientation is west facing.

The house is structurally sound with a new mains gas boiler, PVC windows, new bathroom, Fibre Broadband and 2 stoves. Yes, the house needs updating and upgrading but in a way that is good as it is a blank canvas for someone to put their own mark on it.

Approach to the house is via steps, the train station is across the road and you are on the way out of Cobh so proximity to the City is only 20 mins.

Accommodation consists of – Entrance hall, sitting room with a stove and bay window (view), bedroom 1, bathroom complete with jacuzzi bath and shower, large kitchen/dining room with a stove with a patio door to the front garden overlooking the water. The utility room is off the kitchen. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. Access to the attic is via a stira stairs.

Planning permission was granted back in 2010 to construct an extension to the side of the existing house incorporating the conversion of the existing boat house into living accommodation. The works were never done and the planning lapsed but one could reignite it again

The house offers some great history – it was built in 1862 and was the house that the Engineer for the railway lived. Story has it that during the War of Independence a shot was fired from Passage West through the bay window and into the wall (the bullet could still be there).

All in all, it is a great house and a fantastic opportunity to acquire a waterfront property for the right price.
