Upon arrival you are greeted by electronic gates that grant access to an attractive Gate Lodge which is a lovely prelude to the main residence. The Gate Lodge was seamlessly extended, renovated and refurbished in 1999 to provide larger living space on the ground floor. The Gate Lodge is instantly recognisable with its lovely redbrick walls and yellow brick stringcourse and sill course. Internally, characterful and charming it provides generous and bright living space as well as a double bedroom and Mezzanine floor.
From the Gate Lodge the tall Oak tree lined avenue leads to the main house, a majestic property with features such as a red brick external with yellow brick stringcourses, limestone cills and single pane over pane weighted sash windows. The property is simply beautiful and its immediate surroundings exude calmness. The deep gravel driveway area provides adequate parking for a large gathering as well as a stone fašade double garage which is fully powered.
Stepping inside the main hallway brings an instant sense of welcoming luxury, the property is spacious yet homely with the ground floor offering four reception rooms and a generously proportioned kitchen/breakfast room with direct access into the courtyard. To the rear you will also find a large utility room, guest WC's and service room. Making your way up the original and restored staircase, a tall arched window streams light into both the main hallway and landing. On the first floor you will find five double bedrooms, two of which are en-suite, a family bathroom and linen closet. The internal condition is immaculate and has been sympathetically restored and well finished throughout.
Across the enclosed private courtyard you will find the double height stone-built Coach House which measures Approx. 13'04" X 37'11". This area currently accommodates a snooker table and bar. Beyond the Coach House there is a large wood store and boiler room. The grounds surrounding Glanmire Rectory are impeccably maintained and wonderfully mature, within them you will find a choice of large lawn spaces, a Yew tree, Monkey Puzzle tree, Beech trees and grand Oak trees. The avenue benefits from tall lantern lighting which illuminate the way in the evening and large flood lights are well placed to up light a selection of mature trees.
Approx. 3.5 acres of the site are currently zoned for medium to high density residential use in the County Development Plan. This land benefits from approx. 267 metres of road frontage. While the remainder of the land Approx. 2.3 acres provides a sheltered and private haven for Glanmire Rectory.
The property has only changed hands once since its creation and it is truly a rare occasion to see a property of this calibre on this much land in this location come to the open market.
