Now, as it come to market, it’s a very rare chance to buy a good-sized home on so much ground.
Macroom Town, Cork €550,000
Size: 299 sq m (3,200 sq ft)
The big, edge-of-Macroom town family home Glenavon has almost 100 years of history, and has been for the past half century and more in the one family’s ownership, who’ve enjoyed its considerable grounds - some 1.75 acres, within the town boundary, near the Old Triangle bar, the Milstreet Road and the golf club.
Now, as it come to market, it’s a very rare chance to buy a good-sized home on so much ground within a walk of all that the town has to offer, while Kerry and Killarney are just off down the road to the west.
Gleanavon’s suitably listed with John Hinchion of Sherry FitzGerald Hinchion at a price guide that reflects its rather exalted status: it’s priced at €550,000, with considerable value clearly attached to the amount of space it spans, inside and out.
Needing updating, it was built at stirring times on the Irish historical front, in 1921, and its current owners took it on in 1956.
On the western fringes of Macroom, it faces south over the River Sullane towards the Macroom Golf Course and demesne.
