One of Cork City s oldest residences, Hyde Park House is also one of its most beautifully preserved, having been cared for by generations of proud owners. It is noted in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage as being built between 1820 and 1840. This was a time when the Merchant Princes of Cork City were discovering in Montenotte the perfect spot for their homes; the clean fresh air and wonderful views above the city making this the ideal place to live - a situation that endures to this day. The house takes its name from the Hyde family, who had once owned 6,000 acres in north Cork, along the Blackwater Valley - including the famous Castlehyde Estate. One of their more renowned sons was Douglas Hyde, the first President of Ireland. Today, Hyde Park House is a warm and welcoming home, with an ideal combination of elegant formal spaces and relaxing family spots. Rich with original features, and fine craftsmanship, and updated with everything you could need for today s comforts, this wonderful setting creates a rare opportunity to acquire one of Cork City s finest homes. As the generous layout also includes a second entrance and hallway, and second staircase; you have options to make a home for the extended family, accommodate staff, or create a home-working suite. The addition of plentiful storage and a workshop gives marvellous flexibility to adapt and reach the full potential of whatever you may require.

The main entrance hall and core of Hyde Park House is of classic late Georgian design. The hall has a lovely ceiling rose, moulded plasterwork, and leads to an inner hall with staircase. It also enjoys the symmetry which make these Period homes so beautiful, being flanked by the dining room and kitchen to the right and sitting room and drawing room to the left. The rooms to the front have bay windows, while the drawing room is also an exceptionally beautiful space, with large windows, and leading on to the conservatory. The well-appointed country-style kitchen has a central island and Aga. To the right of these spaces, the second entrance leads to a semi-separate suite, which can also be accessed from the kitchen. This has a large playroom, library, utility, gym and WC, giving obvious options to extend the main core of the house, or to separate it further for different family or work uses. Upstairs there are six bedrooms, all en-suite. Three have bay windows and wonderful light and views. The Master in particular is a marvellous spot, although you may find you re spoiled for choice when choosing your own room.

There is also an upper library area, leading to the second landing where two of the bedrooms are to be found. This leads to an upper ballroom and reception room and makes for exceptional entertaining options, which means it also very useful to discover an extensive wine cellar and storage at basement level.

The pleasure grounds of approximately 1ha(2.5acres) at Hyde Park House give you all the privacy you could wish for, while also putting you in prime position for marvellous views of Cork City, the River Lee, the countryside, and the coast beyond. A sweeping driveway brings you up to the house, which is wrapped around with patios. There is ample hard parking in front.

The gardens themselves are landscaped with lawns and mature planting, beautiful mature trees, and lovely winding walkways and stone steps, leading to charming seating areas. There are rockeries, borders, and plenty of flowers for cutting to bring this beauty indoors. The landscaping also includes a feature fountain. The conservatory leads on to the main patio, while there is further garden access from different spots, making Hyde Park House a place where inside and out blend beautifully. There is a gazebo for enjoying quiet moments to soak up the peace of this secluded spot. There is also a workshop and woodstore, leading off the main rear patio.

Perched above Cork City, Montenotte is an affluent area, known for its beautiful mansions. The layout of the area dates from the era of the Merchant Princes who built their own palaces here. One of these has become the Montenotte Hotel, which gives you all its facilities, including a spa, bars and restaurants right on your doorstep. Hyde Park House is a short distance, either walking or by car from Cork City, where you ll find all the amenities of a major international city, including the highly regarded University at UCC and the Crawford Gallery of Art, which is one of Ireland s National Institutions.

shops, sporting facilities and more. Cork also is known as a foodie destination. The English Market is famous throughout the world, while the bars, caf s and restaurants give you a wealth of choice.
