“A house designed for Living”
LOCATION: This exceptional, fully renovated late 1800s period home is positioned at the upper end of Gardiners Hill, a much sought after Cork City residential neighbourhood.
DESCRIPTION: Entirely restored and extended in 2012 by Fourem Architects, what is immediately obvious about this house is the finish and attention to every detail. Both utilitarian and stylish this is truly a home designed for living in. The original period features have been retained throughout with a ground floor single story rear extension added. A floor to ceiling glass wall has the effect of seamlessly extending the contemporary living space to the private urban garden with its original estate walls. Each room was stylishly redesigned with bespoke features from a cleverly concealed pantry, excellent storage throughout and thoughtful use of all available space. In addition to the high end design aspects of the renovation the house also had all services replaced from plumbing, wiring, insulation and heating. It is a cost effective and energy efficient home. Properties like 3 St. Josephs Villas do not come on the market very often, its unique mix of modern high end design sitting seamlessly into a period setting with muted farrow and ball tones throughout this is a superb home in turnkey condition in a great location.
