Hegarty Properties are delighted to introduce 1 The Rock, a captivating three-story end-of-terrace period home located in the heart of Midleton, Co. Cork. This stunning residence has been meticulously renovated by its current owners, exuding charm and sophistication at every turn. This sale presents a rare opportunity to own a piece of history.

Originally constructed in 1861 as part of a terrace of four, 1 The Rock is an end-of-terrace gable-fronted two-bay three-storey house. Its pitched slate roof is adorned with rendered and brick chimneystacks, while the red brick walls feature yellow brick string courses, a trefoil motif to the gable, and distinctive lettering on the first floor. The architectural details are exquisite, with camber-headed openings to the second floor and pointed arch openings to the remaining floors, showcasing red brick, yellow brick, and limestone voussoirs, as well as limestone sills.

Upon entering, you are greeted by a gracious hallway boasting lofty ceilings and providing
access to the lounge, guest WC, and a breakfast area with an extended kitchen to the rear.
Ascending to the first floor, you’ll find a study (which could double as a fourth bedroom), a double bedroom and a bathroom. Continuing to the second floor, two additional double
bedrooms await, and a bathroom.

Nestled on a highly desirable street in Midleton, 1 The Rock enjoys easy access to the bustling town centre, where boutique shops, restaurants, weekly farmers market, parks and recreational facilities are just a short stroll away. Families will appreciate the proximity to schools such as Midleton Educate Together, St. John the Baptist National School, and Midleton College, ensuring several educational opportunities within walking distance.

Moreover, the property benefits from its close proximity to amenities such as the Jameson Distillery, Fota Wildlife Park, and the beautiful beaches of East Cork, providing endless opportunities for leisure and exploration. For commuters, the nearby Midleton train station offers convenient rail connections to Cork City and beyond, while local bus services provide further transportation options.
