Trading up: Rostellan, Co Cork €235,000

The interior is said to be tasty, but there’s something else too, right on the doorstep, to tingle the tastebuds at Rostellan House.

Trading up: Rostellan, Co Cork €235,000

Size: 100sq m (1,120sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 4 


This renovated two-storey village home with water views has an artisan chocolate maker’s shop and cafe right alongside/beneath, in a cute courtyard setting.

The fledgling chocolate and cafe Rostellan Chocolates business is a further sign of the growing appreciation of the eastern fringes of Cork harbour, and selling agent Adrianna Hegarty in nearby Midleton says this is a house that “oozes character, in a tranquil yet convenient location.

"It’s in truly beautiful condition throughout, after a comprehensive and very tasteful renovation.”

She guides the bright four-bed terraced home of 1,120 sq ft and rear decking and courtyard at €235,000, and adds it overlooks the inner reaches of the harbour above the road between Midleton and Whitegate.

Rooms include two reception rooms, kitchen/dining room, and ground floor shower room, and four bedrooms upstairs, plus main family bathroom.

The easy-keep rear, elevated above the courtyard cafe which is by the main road, is handy for evening barbeques, and also nearby are the chocolatier, Rosie’s bar, Rostellan lake and woods and other walks, plus a local GAA club.

VERDICT: Chocs aweigh.
