Recently we have featured some fine houses with prices north of €1 million. What makes them attractive is their size, and architectural style. If you wallet is thinner then you can have the latter as a cheaper price. How? but a Gate Lodge rather than a stately home itself! An interesting property has come to market in Carrigrohane.

What: White House Gate Lodge, Leemount, (Coolymurraghue Townland), Carrigrohane, Cork City Suburbs, T23 EF83
Guide price: €245,000

This property used to be the Gate Lodge for Leemount, which is a fine country residence. With the passage of time some 3 modern houses were built along the laneway, between the Gate Lodge and Leemount House. The Gate Lodge itself is also in separate ownership.

Barry Auctioneers & Valuers are now delighted to present this Charming Detached 2 bedroomed Gate Lodge on its own site with parking for 2/3 cars. Located c.6km from Cork City and c.3km to Ballincollig. The property has been extended, and tastefully restored over the years, while retaining many of the ‘Original features’. Very private setting surrounded by woodland. It is surrounded on three sides by woodland offering protection from most prevailing weather systems, and has a sunny southerly aspect. Access is by Electronic Gates, making it most secure. Needs to be seen to be fully appreciated.

Viewing is by prior appointment with sole exclusive agents.
