SET into a rural acre site, cut out of a sloping field and with a panorama from here of country views, is this Ballyhubbert Lower family home, in East Cork.

Built just less than a decade ago, it’s part of a cluster of about one dozen homes just north of the N25 east of Killeagh and close to Youghal and the sea.

Larger than it appears from outside, selling agent Kyle Kennedy of Hegarty Properties in Midleton reckons there’s about 3,200 sq ft in all here, with some of the first floor rooms current described as ‘storage.’

It was built to a high spec, with some feature exterior stonework and several airy, double height internal spaces, including a feature entrance hall with mezzanine overhead, and sun room.

Built in 2008, to a high-spec according to the agents, it’s guided at €355,000, with granite sills, high insulation standards, a B3 BER and there’s a block-built detached lofted garage, with further potential. Rooms include sitting room, kitchen/dining room, lofty sun room, utility, and three bedrooms (one with en suite) at ground, plus a storage roms.

Upstairs has a mezzanine/landing, bedroom, shower room, bathroom and storage room.

VERDICT: A whole lotta house, for just over €100 per square foot.
