Keane Mahony Smith & Savills are delighted to introduce Rosanna House.
A very spacious and beautiful five-bedroom detached house built in 1940 and located in one of Cork City\'s most prestigious locations, the Lee Road and steeped in history. It is only minutes from Cork City centre, Ballincollig, Apple, CUH, UCC and a host of other amenities.
Rosanna House is perched in one of the most enviable locations giving it the most picturesque southerly views overlooking the Lee Valley. On the amazing grounds of the house is a nearby pond that has a stream passing through keeping the water fresh. With only the sound of the rustle of the trees and bird song, it is a total retreat, an escape from a busy working day.
Views of the river and beautiful valley below are simply breathtaking. Nature is busy here and the wildlife enthusiast will never be bored. The outdoor life beckons.
Access to Rosanna House is approached through a pair of magnificent wrought-iron single- and double-leaf gates. (Forged in nearby Millboro in the 1830s) These are flanked by rendered walls with limestone copings, and limestone square-profile piers.
The winding driveway climbs above the tree line of the Lee Road and opens onto a wide pasture with a few unobtrusive driveways opening along its length. At the top of the avenue there are automated electric gates that form the entrance to Rosanna House.
Upon entering this magnificent house, you will see many of the original features have been restored, though the house would benefit from some modernisation there is massive potential.
Rosanna House is truly impressive, ideally located on the very edge of Cork City and will make the most ideal family home.
