DNG Creedon Auctioneers are delighted to present a six bedroom detached house located in one of the most prestigious areas of Glanmire, Cork.

If you are looking for a property with charm, charisma and history this is without question the property for you. This property was originally constructed as a national school back in 1889. The current owners purchased the property in 1974 from the diocese and the property has not changed hands since.

When the property was being used as a school it was split into two rooms which was for the entire school of 80 to 90 pupils approximately.

The property is currently heated by gas fired central heating, originally it was heated by a potbelly stove which used to be fueled by the children bringing coal and turf to school. The children in an attempt to keep warm used to bring tea with them to school in flasks. They used to place the flasks beside the potbelly stove in an attempt to keep them warm.

This property has kept a lot of its original character and charm with the original fireplace for the potbelly stove being retained by the current owners. As this building is not a listed structure it allowed the owners to adapt the schoolhouse into a family residence. One of the key focuses for this family was to make the space workable whilst retaining as much of the original charm of the building as possible. For example in the main living room the original wood paneling from the school has been left on the walls. The living room has a double height ceiling with exposed roof beams, stonework and red brick. When upgrading the heating they sourced radiators which were in character to the original construction time of the building. This property stands on a site size of 0.2 acres and it measures just under 2,300 square feet. This property has a footpath from Glanmire right to the door of the house. Located next to this property is a creche, across the road from the house is a national school and less than 1 km away is one of Cork's best secondary schools. Cork city is only a mere 5.9km from the property. This property really has it all.

The property consists of the following:
