A ‘PERIOD jewel’ is how Bellevue in Bandon is described by selling agents Hodnett Forde.
The residence dates back to the early 1800s with many original features retained in the property which is new to the market.
With four bedrooms, three bathrooms and grounds extending to around one acre, the asking price is €405,000.
Included in that are a range of multi-functional outbuildings in a courtyard area to the rear of the residence.
The property’s location is an attractive one as it’s only a few minutes from Bandon town centre, with Cork airport just a short 30 minute drive away.
Additions made to the home have been sympathetic to its history with charming, full length windows retained in many rooms, along with a timeless hallway and façade.
The accommodation line-up includes three large, downstairs reception rooms and a kitchen complete with utility.
Options to knock walls and embrace open plan living exist, depending on the tastes and needs of its new owners.
A courtyard area to the rear of the residence includes an excellent range of outbuildings which will be a big draw for many househunters.
So, too, will the enchanting grounds with lots of nooks and crannies to be explored and developed.
Viewing, according to Hodnett Forde, is highly recommended.
