This boho dream house on St Patrick’s Hill is on the market for €545,000
It’s crying out for an epic party.
Perfectly located on St Patrick’s Hill, a stone’s throw from town, No. 2 Audley Place has hit the market, offering one lucky buyer the chance to own a spacious boho paradise right in the middle of the action.
Dating from 1840, this Georgian terrace was built for the officer classes of the barracks nearby but these days, it’s got plenty to appeal to a cooler customer. Behind the original wrought iron railing and bright red door of this handsome four-bedroom, two-bathroom home, each room has been tastefully decorated in a warm, inviting style.
The vibe is relaxed and eclectic, with a scattering of carefully curated furniture making it impossible not to picture yourself nestled on the sofa with a good book or padding barefoot across the bright white landing in the morning.
“The accommodation at entry-level gives a beautiful lounge, and open plan kitchen/dining room complete with olde world hooks in the ceiling for hanging/curing meats, a utility and guest WC.” explains selling agent Patricia Stokes.
“There is access from the ground floor reception hall to a lovely inner courtyard before rising to the lawned enclosed rear gardens. The first floor gives rise to three rooms and the second floor offers two additional rooms.”
Upstairs the bedrooms are flooded with light from the beautiful sash windows, showcasing the original cornicing and fireplaces as well as the time-worn boards of the original wood floors.
The bathroom boasts a claw-foot soaking tub and a spectacular full-height sash window with views over the city to enjoy as your fingertips wrinkle in the bubbles.
There’s a darling terrace for alfresco coffees as well as a garden that could be sown with wildflowers or developed into an outdoor barbecue area or relaxation space (yoga pagoda anyone?)
The kitchen is ideal for gathering over mugs of tea and bacon butties on the weekends and homework and family dinners during the week.
“Audley Place at the top of Patrick’s Hill has one of the best-known views of Cork City,” adds Stokes.
“It looks out west across Bell’s Field, an extensive and well enjoyed open green, and across to the Shandon Bells while the view south is down to the heart of Cork City – Patrick Street.”
