Crack open that piggy bank.
‘The Inglenook’ is a spacious period property that just went on the market in Sundays Well. Originally built in 1920, this four-bed, four-bath property comes in at a cool €1,150,000 (+ €13,000 stamp duty).
The property is perfectly perched on the banks of the River Lee, right next to the iconic ‘Shakey Bridge’ overlooking Fitzgerald Park. Renovated and refurbished in 2002, the home is spread out over three spacious levels, maximising light thanks to its southerly-facing direction.
Upon entry to the property you are immediately struck by the view of the private gardens, stretching downhill toward the river. The main entrance is accessible via steps, which lead you to the large, elevated outdoor patio space on the first floor.
The entrance hall is bright and welcoming, with a lounge on the left and a private study to the right. The study is connected via double doors to the library, with the charming addition of a double-sided fireplace between both rooms.
The spacious kitchen and dining space is on the lower level of the property, which boasts a large bow window to maximise light. Three separate double-door windows connect the kitchen to the outdoor patio area, perfect for summer BBQs!
The bedrooms are all located on the second floor, three double rooms and a large single room. The master comes kitted out with a cast iron fireplace, original timer flooring, picture rails and another bow window with views of the river. If that wasn’t lavish enough, and it even has it’s own walk-in wardrobe.
The gardens are the most enchanting aspect of this property, which is accessed by Indian limestone steps from the first floor. Apple and wisteria trees decorate the beautifully kept gardens, which are boarded by original stone walls and ornate cast railings leading down to the water below.
