Description

Brumana is an exceptional example of Edwardian excellence extending to circa
3,300 square feet with stunning inner harbour views across to the picturesque
village of Monkstown. Built between 1901 and 1903, Brumana has been described
in the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage as a "substantial house
with interesting features" and typical of houses built to accommodate military
and merchants in Cobh in the early twentieth century. The house and grounds
have been extensively and sympathetically restored to their former glory by
its current owners. The property is superbly located on the perimeter of Cork
city with private access to Rushbrooke train station and a mere twenty minute
train ride or twenty five minute drive to Cork city. 2km kilometres from Cobh
town centre. Rushbrooke has its own primary school, vibrant tennis & croquet
club, kindergarten, train station and much more. Brumana enjoys a beautiful
and sheltered orientation to the south west, having the main reception rooms
and bedrooms situated to take advantage of this orientation and views across
the site and inner harbour. It sits on mature and well maintained grounds of
circa 1.5 acres. The fine detail of the revival of this superb property in
2006 incorporates the restoration of original features to include windows,
architraves, coving, frieze, floors and more. This exacting work has resulted
in the achievement of an excellent finish utilising some of the most luxurious
materials. The property is a listed building and not surprisingly so, as it
illustrates charm and character of the highest level. Extensive living and
bedroom accommodation is offered, arranged over two floors comprising two
reception rooms, library, sunroom, office, breakfast room, a fully fitted
kitchen/dining room, pantry, four bathrooms and five bedrooms. Original
servant quarters comprise a delightful bedroom and the office all with
separate external entrance ideal for use for an au pair or an independence
seeking teenager. The property has oil fired central heating, an aga, two wood
burning stoves and one open fireplace. There is an enclosed yard to the rear
with three outhouses. The Potting Shed, a spacious detached unit is located on
the north western boundary of the site. BER Exempt EIRCODE P24FK64 VIEWING

This calculator is for illustrative and guidance purposes only and is not an offer of a loan. The amount you can borrow will depend on your individual circumstances and is subject to lending criteria, terms and conditions. Your mortgage may be subject to loan to value or loan to income limits and these limits may vary. Fixed rates roll to the corresponding new business variable rate at the end of the fixed period.

APRC calculations are based on the cost per month on a €100,000 mortgage over 20 years. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. For Buy to Let, APRC includes a fee for the Banks solicitor of €950 plus VAT at 23% plus outlay of up to €350.

Principal Dwelling Homes: The lender is Bank of Ireland Mortgages. Lending criteria and terms and conditions apply. Over 18s only. Mortgage approval is subject to assessment of suitability and affordability. You mortgage your property to secure the loan. We require property and life insurance. Maximum loan is generally 3.5 times gross annual income and 80% of the property value (90% of the property value for first time buyers, 70% of the full property value for Buy to Let) but these limits may vary. A typical mortgage of €100,000 over 20 years with 240 monthly instalments costs €615.79 per month at 4.2% variable (Annual Percentage Rate of Charge (APRC) 4.3%). The total amount you pay is €148,114.60. APRC includes €150 valuation fee and mortgage charge of €175 paid to the Property Registration Authority. A 1% interest rate rise would increase monthly repayments by €54.02 per month. [The cost of your monthly repayments may increase – if you do not keep up your repayments you may lose your home].

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT KEEP UP YOUR REPAYMENTS YOU MAY LOSE YOUR HOME.

WARNING: IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE REPAYMENTS ON YOUR LOAN, YOUR ACCOUNT WILL GO INTO ARREARS. THIS MAY AFFECT YOUR CREDIT RATING, WHICH MAY LIMIT YOUR ABILITY TO ACCESS CREDIT IN THE FUTURE.
