Full description:

Savills is delighted to present Dun Rua, a substantial detached family home situated in the tranquil setting of Montenotte, one of the most prestigious residential locations in Cork City

Dun Rua is perched high on the historic Lovers Walk facing due south with sweeping panoramic views over the River Lee spanning from Blackrock to the western reaches of the city. The current residents are only the second family to have occupied the property since its construction in C. 1936. It was originally built to a Canadian specification which meant the roof was designed to withstand 30 feet of snow, a testament to the effort put into the property's construction.

Upon approach to Dun Rua, you are immediately struck by the property's red brick exterior. A sweeping driveway provides plenty of parking and from here you begin to appreciate the stunning city and inner harbour views. A detached garage provides an ideal storage space which is directly accessed off the driveway. Making your way inside you are greeted by immaculate original hallway tiling and high ceilings and as you begin to make your way through the living spaces you will experience a mix of art deco, traditional and modern décor. There are two comfortable living rooms and an inclusive kitchen/dining/living area which runs the depth of the property, which is a beautiful room and the heart of the house.

Making your way upstairs, you will find the main bathroom, together with three large bedrooms, each enjoying superb light and calming panoramic views. The master bedroom which is en suite is worth a special mention. A large south facing balcony allows you to get closer to the views, an ideal space for relaxing morning, afternoon or evening. The second floor provides a converted attic room and shower room.

A cobble pathway provides pedestrian access to the property, which benefits from sensor lighting to illuminate the way. Stepping into the gardens, to the front you will find a landscaped and mature garden including trees such as Copper beach, Magnolia's and a Cherry tree. Also to the front you will find a private south facing patio, whilst to the rear you will find two well planted and cared for tiers, each providing an oasis of peace and quiet whilst taking full advantage of the south facing orientation of the site. The top tier which is fenced is ideal for ball games.

Dun Rua is located within 5 mins drive of Cork city centre and has a host of social and recreational amenities within a close proximity.

For those looking for a family home close to the city whilst still being able to enjoy privacy and sanctuary, look no further.


From Cork City, make your way out the Lower Glanmire Road passing the train station on your right hand side. Continue straight onto Tivoli, take your first left turn onto Trafalgar Hill, which will bring you onto Lovers Walk. Once making your way up Lovers Walk, take your second right into Woodhill Park. Dun Rua is the second house on your right hand side. See Sign.
