Full description:

Savills is delighted to bring the Iconic Arbutus Lodge to the open market, this unmistakeable landmark Cork timepiece comes up for sale in fine fettle.

It was been extensively and sympathetically renovated and refurbished in recent years and today the property benefits from modern plumbing (c. 2009), wiring (c. 2008) and an impressive new roof (c. 2017) as well as a cosmetic upgrade (c. 2009) whilst maintaining many of its alluring original features.

Arbutus Lodge was originally built C. 1820 for a wealthy merchant and has been home to a number of owner occupiers over the years including the Cork Lord Mayor Charles J. Cantillon. When it changed hands in 1961 it would go on to become the Michelin starred Arbutus Lodge hotel and restaurant it is during this tenure of ownership that the building would become a much loved Cork and indeed Irish institution. The property returned to residential use in the 2000's and underwent extensive renovation and refurbishment which has safe guarded the property's future.

Upon approach, you are met with a large gravelled parking area, which can easily accommodate 10 cars. From here, you can appreciate how much outside space remains with the original house, about 0.37 of an acre, a sizeable plot so close to Cork City.

Approached from the West, Arbutus Lodge is a handsome Georgian period property that is set out over three storeys, external features include three canted bay windows one of which stretches over the three storeys on the south elevation, canted porch, double glazed sash windows, corbelled window features, whilst internal features include original cornicing, ceiling roses, plasterwork, corbelled pillars, fireplaces and a solid wood front door with stained glass windows.

Stepping over the threshold brings you into a spectacular hallway that benefits from 10'6 high ceilings with ornate plasterwork design still intact, this welcoming space invites you with open arms to explore the two key south facing reception rooms which are awash with natural light. These two rooms are separated by solid wood pockets doors that allow each rooms personality to come through as separate reception rooms or to be opened as one light filled room which ignites this space for when extra space is required. The third connecting room which can also be accessed separately from the main hallway is the kitchen/dining, this room runs the depth of the property again allowing for great light and views, here you will also find a study space and rear hallway with access point. This level also offers a private west facing family room and guest lavatory.

Ascending the original solid wood staircase complete with ornate newel posts, swan neck balustrades and barley twist spindles, brings you past a large three part stained glass window which is in excellent order and onto the first floor. Here, you will find five bedrooms, four of which have en suites.

Making your way onto the ground floor level reveals a bright open plan garden level room accessed via a rear hallway off the stairs, this area also provides easy access to the service rooms and storage room. The open plan nature of this space would make it an ideal games room, home office or gym and can be independently accessed from the garden level.

The gardens themselves offer a surprisingly large south facing lawn with high boundary walls, whilst the gravelled parking area is accessed via original limestone pillars and wrought iron gates. A rear passageway provides a third external access point.

The convenience level of Arbutus Lodge is hard to match anywhere else in the city, schools, shops, bars, restaurants and Cork city itself are all within easy waking distance.

Arbutus Lodge comes to the open market posing as an ideal family home in fine fettle, don't miss out on this rare opportunity.


From Cork City, make your way up Summerhill North taking a right at St Luke's cross onto Middle Glanmire Road. Arbutus Lodge is along on your right hand side. See Sign. Eir Code: T23 C9Y9
