Keane Mahony Smith are delighted to bring to the market this extended 4 bed luxury family home overlooking the Lough with impeccable design and exceptionally high spec finishes throughout. In the ownership of the current family for over thirthy years, this beautifully presented house has been meticulously cared for over the years. The home oozes character, with many of the original features intact, carefully balanced and enhanced by a wraparound extension, a stunning home in this much sought-after location. Standing on the western end of Cork's famous Lough, a protected wildlife sanctuary since 1881, Glendalough Park is quite simply a great place to live. It is a leisurely 15-minute walk to the city centre and a mere stroll to the UCC Campus, Bons Secours Hospital, Cork University Hospital, etc. Well served also by great local schools, an adjacent supermarket, and an excellent bus service (route 216 via Glasheen Rd or 214 via the Lough Rd). A wonderful opportunity not to be missed.
