Take Four

What: Four-bedroom lodge-style property with tennis court Where: Rosendale Lodge, Kilnamartyra, Macroom, Co Cork

Situated less than two miles from the village of Kilnamartyra and a short drive from Macroom in Co Cork, Rosendale Lodge is a four-bedroom detached home standing on a large site of 1.25 acres.

The 186sqm (2,001sq ft) property is tucked away in its own mini-valley, giving it unrivalled privacy. The gardens are sheltered by mature shrubs and trees.

Among the garden features are a lawned area with natural pond and a cottage garden with hidden patios to the front of the house, creating an al-fresco dining room. But the jewel in the crown of Rosendale's garden is the tennis court – a full-size grass court bordered by rocky outcrops.

The reception hall divides the two principle rooms, a lounge and dining room. Each of these has beamed ceilings and cast-iron fire surrounds, while the dining room features painted panelled walls and integrated bookshelves. The kitchen/breakfast room is situated off the dining room.

The ground floor of Rosendale Lodge is completed by a den, conservatory, utility and a bathroom. Moving upstairs, the first floor contains four double bedrooms (two ensuite), an office and a family bathroom. A BER rating is pending for the house.

The property is within easy reach of Macroom town, six miles away, and Kilnamartyra village, as well as being an easy commute to Cork city (30 miles), Killarney and Bantry.
