Architect-designed, two-bed home in Clonakilty comes with high-end features
Saturday, December 09, 2017
Trish Dromey reports on a rarity in the west Cork town of Clonakilty — a new build described as attractive, slightly quirky and modern.
NEW properties are in very short supply in the west Cork town of Clonakilty but No 1 Bellmount on Convent Way has just become available.
Auctioneer Andy Donoghue says Hodnett Forde auctioneers only has two new houses on its books — this recently finished detached two bed one as well as a larger four bed one alongside it, set for completion next year.
Both were built by a local developer on a site which was originally the large garden of a nearby bungalow.
Attractive, slightly quirky and modern, No 1 Bellmount has 900 sq ft of living space and comes with an A3 energy rating.
“It’s architecturally designed with an array of high-end features including a fitted kitchen, tiled bathrooms and electric gates,” says Mr Donoghue who is guiding it at €285,000.
Selling points include the location, within a short walk from the town centre, in addition to the fact that it’s detached and has a good BER rating.
“It has PV solar panels, a high level of insulation and oil-fired heating,” says Mr Donoghue.
Accommodation includes a dining/living space with hardwood flooring, two sets of patio doors and a stove as well as a kitchen with modern cream units without appliances.
Maximising the use of space, the property has a ground floor guest WC and a small utility area. The first floor has a bathroom and two timber-floored bedrooms.
At one side the property has off street parking and at the other, behind high white walls and some timber fencing, a paved patio and garden with a steel shed.
