Trading up: Caherlag, Glanmire €525,000

There’s a lofty demeanour to Caherlag House, a period era detached home on a countryside site, that’s already on a height.

Size: 231sq m (2,500 sq ft)

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 4/5 


Sort of a tall, top-hat of a shape, this 2,500 sq ft home on a half acre with old courtyard building outline and patios/BBQ area, gets better views of Cork harbour and its surrounding rural hinterland the higher up you go. And, you can go up all three storeys.

Location is near Erin’s Own GAA club and Caherlag cemetery, up on the hilly heights between Glanmire and Glounthaune, which is home to a number of quite large one-offs built in the past two decades — though none is as tall as this stone-built home, with more height to it that depth or breadth.

For sale with Ann O’Mahony of Sherry FitzGerald who guides at €520,000, Caherlag House has kept some of its mid-to-late 1800s features such as window shutters, doors and door cases, but has also been altered in recent decades, with windows changed, and central heating added (plus back boiler) among other changes.
