Trish Dromey looks at a significantly extended home in Tower, Co Cork.
With a recently-added two-storey extension at the side, No 12 Gleann Na Rí in Tower offers a lot of house for a guide of €275,000.
Built in the early 2000s, as a three-bed semi with a sunroom extension at the rear, it’s now become a four-bed property with two bathrooms, two living rooms, and a utility room.
“The owners have added around 600 sq ft to bring it up to a very substantial 1,650 sq ft,” says Pat Falvey of Coldwell Banker auctioneers.
Accommodation includes a front sitting room with a fireplace as well as a kitchen with modern white units with a centre island which were fitted in recent years. Sliding patio doors open in to the sunroom which has a vaulted ceiling and has become a colourful playroom.
The extension at the side has a second living room with grey oak-style laminate flooring, and a large corner window. There’s also a utility room and new modern shower room with a corner cubicle.
The upstairs has an extra bedroom space big enough (17 ft by 13’) to put in an en suite, although the owners decided against doing this. The original house has a bathroom and three bedrooms. Overlooking a green area, the house has parking at the front and a garden with a lawn and a patio with Wendy houses used as a play area at the rear.
Gleann Na Rí is 1km from Tower village and 3km from Blarney. Mr Falvey says it offers excellent value at this price, and is getting viewings from trade-up buyers as well as ones in search of a first home.
A very substantial modern home.
