Savills is delighted to introduce Carrighru House, a stunning 5 bed period property steeped in history.

Set on a beautiful site overlooking Cuskinny Bay and Nature reserve which provides a calming and peaceful setting.

The property has been exceptionally well maintained and improved over the years by its current owners. Works carried out include re-plumbing, re-wiring, installation of new floors and partial re-roofing. A new kitchen and 2 new bathrooms have also been installed. All rooms have sash windows. As a result Carrigrhu House is a manageable period home which is ready for occupation.

Upon arrival you are greeted by a long tree lined driveway which is also boarded by hydrangeas and rose bushes, this gravel topped driveway whisks you to a spacious parking area, from here you begin to get a sense of the space and quietness Carrigrhu House offers. Stepping inside you are met by a spacious and inviting reception space that benefits from original plasterwork and columns.

The ground floor accommodation includes an interconnecting lounge/ drawing room which benefits from two large bay windows and doors that provides direct access into the grounds, a bright kitchen/breakfast room, large guest bathroom and utility room. The ground floor also provides a self-contained one bedroom apartment that is attached to the main house and can be accessed internally & externally, an ideal space for guests or an au pair. Making your way up the gradual staircase you will find five double bedrooms, the master bedroom is en suite and a main bathroom. All accommodation is bright and enjoys garden and or water views of nearby Cuskinny Bay.

Stepping into the grounds reveals a number of secret gardens and includes a lovely perimeter walkway which will bring you through the lawn, a forest of mostly beech trees and back up the main driveway. The grounds are also home to a detached garage with mezzanine, courtyard area and a south facing seating area from which you can enjoy the wonderful grounds of Carrighru House.
