Russell Estate Agents are honoured to present ‘Northcliffe’ to the market. This property is set overlooking Cork Harbour and has had a very interesting history. The property was a post office and telegraph office in the 1800’s and played a pivotal role in transatlantic communications. It remained a post office until the foundation of the Irish Free state and in later years has been turned into a residential dwelling. The property has been used by its current owners as a holiday home since the early 1990’s and is now ready for its new owners. The setting is picture perfect enjoying wonderful views over Cork Harbour. From the living room you can see across to the historic town of Cobh and its Cathedral. It is located just a few minutes drive from the village of Whitegate and less than 30 minutes from Cork City. This truly is a once in a life time opportunity to acquire such a property so viewing comes highly recommended.
