O\\\'Mahony Walsh and Associates present this, unique pre-famine church, set amongst mature woodland on an idyllic 1/3-acre site.
This superbly located Church and Lodge, on Grange Road, Ovens, is set on the banks of the River Bride. It is a tranquil and private mature woodland setting. The picturesque, 1/3 acre site, is a 5 minutes walk from the DELL Technologies Campus and Essentra Ltd, in the Ovens IDA Industrial Park and the Pedestrian Overpass over the N22, that links Ovens with Ballincollig
Unique features include the original 3 column, stained glass window, in perfect condition, magnificent Pine Vaulted Ceiling, and 4 Story Limestone Tower. The limestone sides of the riverbank worn by the water over thousands of years are magnificent, directly in front of the church and enhance the uninterrupted west-facing riverside aspect.
The 24 hour 220 x commuter bus to Ballincollig, Cork and beyond is 3 minutes away.
The Church is 1200 sq. ft. approx. and the Lodge is 300 sq. ft. approx, both ideal for conversion into residential or commercial purposes, subject to planning permission.
Planning permission was granted in to convert the church to a beautiful 4 bedroom home under s 96/4331, now expired.
Because of the relatively compact size of both buildings, the budget for restoration and development is not excessive.
A right of way and way-leave for access and utilities exist on the Avenue, permission exists to widen the roadside entrance
The Church which was completed in 1765 and is the oldest of its kind in the area, has been closed since its deconsecration in 1978, when the Church of Ireland parish was amalgamated with Carrigrohane.
