One of the greatest examples of architecture in the world is the Royal Crescent in Bath, England - of Italianate design and - built in 1767. Less than 100 years later along with the arrival of the Victorian era Cobh or Queenstown as it was then known witnessed the construction of its own Crescent but this time the vista is much greater - Cork Harbour the worlds second largest natural harbour.

No. 8 the Crescent is one of 13 houses laid 2 storey over lower ground with private garden. There is a large communal green area below the private gardens. This provides pedestrian access to the town centre for convenience and easy access to shops and restaurants.

This charming period property requires some refurbishment but is a project well worth investing in as the outcome will without doubt surpass expectation.
These homes are in the main occupied by families for their lifetime and as there are only 13 houses the opportunity does not arise to purchase one very often.

Many original features are remaining at the property such as fireplaces, coving and more. Work has been done on the roof and 4 new Velux windows have been added. All windows - to the south of the property have been replaced - tastefully and with attention to detail - these are sash windows providing magnificent views of the harbour. Rewiring to the upper floors has also been undertaken.
The lower level requires complete refurbishment and offers the owner separate living accommodation if one is prepared to part with access to the private garden at that level. As expected this property is listed on the Record of Protected Structures (RPS)
Viewing is highly recommended
