The history of No. 3 is interesting. The property started its life as part of the grounds of Brookfield House with its fruit farm and orchard. Brookfield house was owned at that stage by The Jennings family and their lands extended from UCC out to the model farm road. The Jennings were a prominent Cork merchant family through the 19th. and early 20th century. They had business interests in chemicals and they bottled and distributed mineral waters. Renowned for their fruit growing their raspberries were the main ingredient of the drink known to many corkonians as “rassa”. With the backdrop of a kiln wall forming part of the boundary in the rear garden purchasers will be curious as to its historical use. It was here that the Jennings family extracted the magnesium from limestone to create milk of magnesia.
The work that has gone into making this home together with its gardens into what they are today will not go un noticed by would be buyers. The property enjoys a steam running to the rear boundary fed from the Glasheen River which rises out at the Viaduct. Viewing is highly recommended and strictly by appointment.

The driveway itself offers parking for a number of vehicles. The rear of the property boasts two distinct areas divided by a row of poplar trees. The upper lawn has a beautiful weeping willow taking centre stage and the Kiln wall provides an insight to the heritage of the property. At this level there is rear access to the double garage as well as a sizeable glasshouse. The lower lawn is accessed on both sides by steps and runs to the back boundary with the stream defining its finish. There is independent access from here to the beginning of Orchard Road opening the possibility to divide the overall site into more than just one home. Another garden shed takes up position here with further outbuildings.
