Located only 10 minutes from Kinsale and half an hour from Cork city this perfect house is ideal for those who yearn for a peaceful country lifestyle with the conveniences of urban amenities nearby.

Approaching Facefield through the gated entrance, up the dramatic sweeping tarmac drive, you will pass through the large front lawn bounded by a magnificent display of beautiful native Irish trees, all adding to the sense of privacy and seclusion. Arriving at the house you will see a large set down area with plenty of parking options.
Making your way toward this magnificent house you will be impressed by its classical design and impressive proportions.
Upon moving into the entrance hall, you will go through the lovely inner glass double doors to the main reception hall which features two embellished alcove' s. Before you is the beautifully craft bifurcated mahogany staircase leading to the sleeping accommodation above.

On your right is the first of many reception rooms. The drawing room has a lovely vista overlooking the front garden and has an antique ornate marble fireplace as its focal point as well as a coving feature throughout. Next is the generously sized west facing family room with a fitted Henley multi-fuel stove and with windows giving 180-degree panoramic outstanding views and afternoon light. A superb room for all the family to relax.
Through the glass double doors beyond is the extremely spacious sunroom with outstanding views overlooking the patio and garden with it getting all day light.

The kitchen and diningroom, to the rear of the house, also has direct access to the patio area and is something special, with a magnificent bespoke fully fitted cherry wood contemporary kitchen, complete with matching island, magnificent granite worktops and a selection of premium appliances. Ideal for those who enjoy food and of course is very ergonomic.
The morning room, with its double doors to the sunny patio and garden, is a great room to relax with a cup of coffee and read a book and is adjacent to the kitchen, with the utility, pantry and guest WC just beyond.

Also on this floor is a reception room, a lovely large room with its own tastefully tiled en-suite and ideal as a guest bedroom or perhaps as a home office if needed.

Ascending the classically designed staircase one arrives at the landing area which has a gallery looking down to the main hall below and a beautifully embellished alcove. Just off the landing and located over the entrance hall is the light-soaked gallery room which has large glass windows surrounding it and giving commanding views over the front garden and the countryside beyond.

On this floor are four very generously sized double bedrooms, all impeccable in their presentation and their own beautifully tiled en-suites and walk-in wardrobes. The beautifully presented master bedroom is overlooking the back garden and has the largest en-suite and walk-in wardrobe.
Also on this floor is a very spacious study and hidden staircase to the second floor.

On the next floor you will find a large open space used primarily as a gym but with a myriad of other potential uses including as a home cinema, a studio or as a workspace. There is a large double bedroom on this floor with its own en-suite and a large storeroom.

The garden is most impressive with a beautiful display of mature broadleaf trees and shrubs, including silver birch, Californian redwood, oak, tulip tree, sycamore, ash, elm, columnar yew tree and copper beech.
