ONE of Cork’s most under-rated public parks and charming small woods is, quite literally, just over the back wall of two brand new homes in Cork’s long-bedded down Beaumont suburb.

The two detached houses are built on the site and grounds of a family-run Spar shop, which ceased trading two years ago, and was offered as a development site instead - it’s last sale.

Buyers were the rapidly expanding developers DOB Developments, associated with the family of seasoned builder Denis O’Brien, ex of O’Brien and O’Flynn, and they’ve also since acquired sites residential sites in Skehard Road, Orchard Road, and even at Beaumont Crescent, a stone’s throw from this house offer. Guided at €830,000 is No 1, Upper Beaumont Drive, a five-bed, A3 BER-rated five-bath 2,400 sq ft detached, designed by Paul Mulligan, and with its accommodation over three levels.

It’s the bigger of two houses here on the old Spar footprint, side by side, with good sized back gardens; No2 next door sold earlier this year, a 1,700 sq ft four-bed, which made €675,000 says auctioneer Jennifer Roe of Casey & Kingston. Ms Roe describes the very deep build, with part-brick two-storey bay facade, as “traditional yet utterly contemporary, and a rare opportunity to purchase something new and unique in this highly sought-after neighbourhood.”

On the doorstep is a large park and woods by Beaumont quarry, home to Avonmore club’s soccer pitch as well as to Beaumont’s girls’ and boys’ national schools; it’s on a bus route and close to hand are suburbs like Blackrock and Ballintemple. DOB Developments may now follow with four detacheds, three of 1,700 sq ft and one of 2,000 sq ft on the grounds of a Beaumont Crescent bungalow they’ve also bought.

Meanwhile, two of four houses remain to sell at Dundanion Place, Beaumont, both A-rated. Savills guide a 1,9 00 sq ft five-bed semi at €650,000, and a 2,200 sq ft five bed detached at €740,000.

VERDICT: When they’re gone, they’re gone
