'Acres' offers plenty of space and comfort in Dripsey

ACRES in Dripsey has space and comfort enough to lure city buyers — or Ballincollig ones — to the countryside. For a guide of €425,000, the 2008-built dormer bungalow offers over 2,400sq ft of accommodation, which includes three sitting rooms and five bedrooms in addition to a site of almost half an acre.

Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald notes: “It’s built to a very high standard and enjoys scenic rural views, and all the benefits that come with countryside living.”

An L-shaped property, Acres has a timber-floored living room at the front, and a long kitchen diner at the rear, recently upgraded with high gloss cream units, sparkle quartz countertops, and integrated appliances.

The most comfortable-looking space may well be the family room, which is situated at the rear and has a high vaulted ceiling with polished timber flooring and a fireplace. Three of the bedrooms are at the front, while the fourth at the side has both a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite. For a little touch of luxury, the owners have put a Jacuzzi bath in the bathroom.

The first floor has two 24-foot-long (approximately 7.3m) rooms with windows at the rear — one is the fifth bedroom (with an en-suite) while the other is a lounge/playroom. Acres is a little under 12km

kilometres from Ballincollig, and 19km from Cork city centre.
