Full description:

Savills delighted to present Woodhill House, a highly impressive 6 bedroom detached residence set on a generous south facing approx. 3 acre site moments from Cork City. The property was built in 1989 by the highly regarded P.J. Hegarty & Sons builders for a family member and designed by Gerald McCarthy of Green McCarthy Stansfield. Woodhill House is built on an historic site which formed the seat of Woodhill Estate belonging to Cooper Penrose dating back to the 1700's. Today's Woodhill House is built in a Georgian style to exacting standards with no expense spared in its construction or quality finishes.

Approached via impressive tall electronic wooden gates flanked by classical limestone pillars dating back to 1820. A gradual descending driveway leads to the main parking area which provides more than ample parking to deal with any social gathering. Stepping inside this exquisitely appointed residence reveals a thoughtfully planned flow of extensive living and bedroom accommodation over two levels. The main hallway sets the tone for the accommodation to follow, a spacious and welcoming reception hallway with a high level finish leads you into the ground floor accommodation which provides a mix of formal and social reception rooms, two guest powder rooms and a generous utility room. Upstairs you will find 6 bedrooms, (3 en-suites) and a main bathroom.

The property has been traditionally built with features such as highly insulated solid floors and walls, bespoke crafted joinery in every room, imposing solid mahogany doors, solid oak floors, a sweeping solid mahogany staircase and galleried landing. The vast majority of the property's accommodation has been designed to exploit its orientation which provides great light and views and as a result the living and bedroom spaces are awash with natural light. The external design results in a wonderfully symmetrical house that exudes presence and substance. The standard of finish both internally and externally is excellent while the gardens themselves are expertly landscaped by Brian Cross who has combined a 300 year old Redwood tree with a formal garden which has matured to perfection over the years and today provides a cocooned and leafy site, level lawn spaces and Liscannor patio areas provide calming seating and outside entertainment areas. Within the grounds you will also find the foundation for a detached garage.

Woodhill House comes to the market as one of the finest luxury home offerings in the Cork market while its location offers ultra convenience.
