Grove House, on the Colla Road in Schull which is where the best views are, enjoys a panoramic view of the harbour looking directly over the pier. There is year round activity in the harbour with many yachts moored and fishing boats working daily. A ferry runs regularly to Cape Clear. The property enjoys a prime site, not only enjoying the tranquil view but being within very close walking distance of the town with its many shops, galleries, restaurants, coffee shops, bars, pier, sailing club, schools, banks and much much more.
Accommodation is in abundance in this period home which was once belonging to the Church of Ireland. Enter through a typical sunny porch leading to a long impressive hallway, drawing room, sitting room, dining room while upstairs there are five bedrooms en suite to mention just some of the magnificent rooms in this fine home. Of course as expected there are plentiful period features, ornate mahogany staircase, double height stained glass windows, original pitch pine floors, cornicing, ceiling roses, magnificent fireplaces, mahogany wainscoting in the drawing room while not original probably as old as some of the house.
The property currently has two kitchens, as one bedroom was converted to a domestic kitchen and a dining / living room to facilitate extra family members. The commercial kitchen is at ground floor level and comes complete with brand new cold room, preparation area and scullery. Four bedrooms still remain upstairs and the converted two would make six in all should one wish to revert back to all bedrooms at upper level. The two bedrooms to the front enjoy birds eye views of the harbour.
There is a large conservatory to the west of the property which was once one of the dining rooms for the restaurant and with its pitched ceiling it enjoys westerly sun as well as southerly views of the front lawn and harbour backdrop. Wander outside to the large gravelled parking area, easily converted back to large gardens, which continues on to the front lawn, the perfect foreground to the nautical backdrop that is Schull harbour and the coastline beyond.
To the rear there is a paved courtyard with a guest apartment and plenty of sheltered growing area where two polytunnels provide copious amounts of fruit and vegetables once used in the restaurant. The property shares its entrance with a small number of privately owned homes on the site and ownership of the driveway remains with Grove House.
The property sits on c.0.8 acres offering an opportunity for a keen gardener to landscape the south westerly area to a large private sunny garden.
This infamous home is primed for a new owner, whether you are a chef seeking a new business opportunity or you have a love of old houses full of character and want to be in a seaside town location, this is the home for you!
