It’s a storybook family home.
And if you’ve got a cool €825k burning a hole in your bank account, Conna House in Fermoy is a Victorian country pile that could be the perfect beginning to your very own fairytale.
A few minutes walk from the village of Conna (population 300), this romantic property is nestled in the heart of six acres of woodland and paddocks, complete with a stream running through it.
Built-in the late 1800s, it’s been carefully kept, meaning it’s in turn-key condition… ready for its new owners to fill the vast halls with the noise of family life for another generation.
But there’s more.
There are two major extras in the deal; the sale includes a two-bedroom, two-storey self-contained coach house and a cosy one-bedroom cottage with an open plan living/kitchen area and a large bedroom and full bathroom.
For a pair of grandparents looking to downsize or an extended family eager to be closer together, the extra space might represent a unique opportunity to pitch in and live the country life en famille.
There’s also a stable and a large shed on the grounds, which will excite buyers with use for a workshop or studio space.
Inside the main house, the living room features stunning polished timber floors and an original fireplace, with an arched opening to the dining room. French doors lead to a private patio and kitchen garden.
The kitchen, which is fitted out with all the mod cons, boasts double doors to the breakfast room (a Victorian essential and home to an Aga surrounded in brick ) and access to another courtyard.
Working from home will be a joy in the study located directly off the main hall, although the large window looks out onto the tennis court, so you might want to draw the blinds to avoid distraction.
Upstairs, there’s ample space for a book collection in the alcove library on the landing. Each of the five bedrooms in the main house is en suite
“From the moment you arrive at this stunning house, from the private tree-lined driveway to the stunning entrance hall, you will be amazed at every detail.” says agent, Lorraine Spillane.
“The high ceilings with the original cornicing and centre roses, the fireplaces and working window shutters… every little detail has been retained.”
“It isn’t often that a house of this age is offered for sale in such amazing condition. The rooms are all on a grand scale and yet the house is extremely functional as a day to day family home.”
