Set on grounds extending to approx. 5 acres is the wonderful Killasseragh a blended period property dating from c. 1840 brought into the modern world in 2005 and enhanced further over the last 12 months.  Killasseragh now presents as a 5 bedroomed detached family home extending to approx. 3,750 sq. ft. with a host of out buildings to include stable block, outhouses, work sheds and of course its own guest cottage.  The property is arranged around well planted gardens and a central sheltered inner courtyard.  This home sits in a beautiful peaceful countryside setting with uninterrupted views of The Galtee, Knockmealdown and Comeragh mountains as its backdrop.

Killasseragh started its life back in 1840 as a small two up two down traditional cottage.  Over the years it has been sympathetically and tastefully modified and extended making sure that the new blends seamlessly with the old.  Many of the olde world features remain in place in the original structure and the more modern twist gives a nod to these.  A shiny black AGA, original internal doors in places, wide plank oak flooring and designed wood panelling to dado height blend well together.  Floor to ceiling heights vary as you move from room to room with vaulted areas measuring 17ft 5” (5.35 mt) to 10ft  (3.04m) in the main lounge and 8ft 3”( 2.6 m) at upper levels.  This home sports a C1 energy rating, a testament to the materials used in its upgrades.  The current owners enjoy their open fires however the current energy rating could easily become a B if alternations were carried out to some of the three fireplaces by installing  solid fuel stoves.

The property sits perfectly within its 5 acre landholding.  The property, its immediate gardens, courtyards, outbuildings, stable block and guest cottage take up approx. 1 acre of these grounds all arranged in a horse shoe shape giving shelter and privacy to the inner courtyard.  The balance of the 4 acres is laid out as a paddock with a natural stream running along its southern border.

The internal accommodation of this home is every bit as interesting as its external with wide open plan rooms coupled with cozy corners.  The accommodation in brief offers entrance porch, wonderful open plan reception hall flooded in natural light with vaulted floor to ceiling height and windows, beautiful kitchen/dining room, interior designed lounge, snug, dining room, teenage den, guest wc all at entry level.  The first floor of this home offers and extensive landing space giving rise to five double bedrooms with main bedroom suite enjoying its own en-suite, two family bathrooms support the other four.

There is something very special about a home that has two different staircases to the upper level as it gives a level of interest and intrigue not found in more traditional homes .  Killasseragh does not disappoint when it comes to intrigue or interest.  The front of the home is appealing with its neutrally painted finish all capped with a red brick trim.  The entrance porch is attractive with its carriage lights either side and gives easy access to the front door.  Black PVC fascia and soffit combine with black shoots to  break the elevation and give definition to the overall layout.

There is a selection of access points to the grounds of this home depending on the particular activity at hand.  The original pedestrian and double black wrought iron gates along with the low wall and pedestrian path to the glazed sun porch leading into the original cottage are perfect and still in place.  Set within old stone walls that gable to the road outside complete with peep holes these now sport high gloss black paint which blends with fresh whitewashed walls to give them their summer look.  A newer and separate sweeping driveway is flanked with the wrap around paddock to the right while the back of the buildings enclosing the courtyard area are to the left.  There is vehicular access to the courtyard from the driveway via stable gate set within an old stone wall.

The location of Killasseragh is ideal, set within the rolling countryside of east Cork.  It is best accessed from the M8 just 15 minutes away along the Conna/ Rathcormac Road.  The property is also easily accessed from Midleton less than 20 minutes.  Cork city is approx. a 40min drive.

Reception hall

It is difficult to attribute the words reception hall to this space as it is truly much much more as you arrive into a wide and open vaulted space.  A tear drop chandelier greets you as you enter.   Three wide steps lead to the upper section where a French limestone fireplace with black cast iron inset and black marble heart sits at the centre.  This area enjoys a vaulted floor to ceiling height of 17ft 5 “  accentuating this space and a sister tear drop chandelier lights it.  The upper landing is gallery from the reception hall below.  The back part of this reception enjoys floor to ceiling glazing looking out into the inner courtyard and works well as home office space.  The entire reception is finished with wide plank oak floor is flooded in lots of natural light and wall lights illume the space.  Extra high moulded skirting, architrave and cornicing finish the space.  A bespoke radiator covers acts as a display shelf unit and a cosy tuck away caters for coats and shoes.
