Indoor quality in the Rose Hill House
First, there aren’t that many houses with that address, just above and west of Wellington Bridge and Sunday’s Well.
Looking south from a nearby section of Rose Hill
At Rose Hill House you can hear the water at the weir most of the time, but the actual view of the leeward itself is quite seasonal as old trees in this leafy setting tend to close up the view of the river in summer when they are fully grown cover up.
The kitchen / dining room is at full depth, with French doors to the south-facing terrace
That same growth in turn obscures the view of the lower-lying houses of Rose Hill, and there is more or less the Rose Hill House, private, discreet, more shielded now, most likely than when it was first built at the end of the 19th century.
The Indian limestone terrace offers several seating areas
It was done by its sellers who bought around 2005, including wiring and plumbing, and previously by another previous owner who added the almost perky attic style roof with Velux windows a few decades ago. The top floor created by this extension now houses three of the six bedrooms of the property as well as a study and shower room.
With its origins in 1895, the Rose Hill House appears in fine plaster, with replacement sliding windows from Marvin, has many historical trim elements such as interior arches and niches, ceilings and other decorative plasterwork, fireplaces (also in some bedrooms), polished wood floors, a upgraded kitchen with granite countertops, good bathrooms and lots of original artwork and paintings on display to top it off.
Keep the house fires burning
Probably warm thanks to the south-facing location (the BER is an E1), has gas central heating and mains connection, while the modern with CAT 5 cabling / fast broadband and Bosch surround sound comes to the fore.
The front door is in the center, set in a simple high arch, with Wyatt-style sliding windows on either side, that is, with main sliding pain, complemented by slimmer side wings, a pattern that is also repeated on the windows directly above, with simpler, more regular ones Sash over the door and on the side.
Stepped stern with stone niches
Behind it, the garden is tiered and tiered, with the upper section perfect for a vegetable and herb garden, suggests Mr O’Donovan from Savills in front of the greenhouse, or perhaps for the display of statues or small urns.
Bedroom with fireplace
The 5,7 acre site of the former St. Kevin’s Hospital in Shanakiel lies beyond to the west, now under the control of the Land Development Agency and earmarked for substantial new 266-unit development and LDA renovation of the historic building. with an SHD (Strategic Housing Development) application approved by An Bord Pleanala.
