A restored mansion on 155ac in north Cork is on the market for €2.45m
Ballygriggan House on 155ac is a fine, modernised country house and farm set in the rolling land of north county Cork.
The property was refurbished, renovated and extended over the last 15 years by its current owners and is for sale by private treaty with a guide price of €2.45m
The house and lands are located some 5km from the village of Castletownroche, which is just over 15km from both Fermoy and Mallow on the N72.
Approached by a tree-lined avenue, Ballygriggan House is situated on an elevated site, with fine views over the surrounding countryside. The two-storey, 8,200 sq ft house has a six-bay front with an offset entrance porch and a six-bay side elevation with a recessed centre.
The renovation and refurbishments undertaken by the present owners included an extension that doubled the floor area and saw the house rewired, re-plumbed and fitted with a new heating and hot water system.
The accommodation is spacious and elegant and includes a reception hall, four reception rooms, seven bedrooms (six of which have ensuite facilities) and a family bathroom.
The kitchen/breakfast room has been fully renovated and modernised and includes timber fitted units in a range of base and eye-level units with beech work surfaces and an Aga cooker. Other rooms include a utility, a study, a downstairs WC and shower room and a rear hall. The renovations were undertaken with great sensitivity and many of the original features, such as ornate plasterwork and fireplaces, have been maintained and enhanced.
The property covers the whole townland of Ballygriggan and is bounded on its eastern and northern boundaries by the River Awbeg.
