Beautifully-maintained modern home in East Cork

Trish Dromey admires an attractive three-bed house in the scenic village of Ballycotton in East Cork.

This attractive, modern three-bed detached house at 13 Silver Stand in Ballycotton could be snapped up by buyer looking for a family home, or by a retiree who wants to live near the sea.

That’s according to Shay Cronin of Cronin Wall Properties who says that both types of buyers are showing interest, and also that all properties coming on the market in the East Cork seaside village are now attracting very good attention, quite a bit of it from retirees and returning expatriates.

Open to offers of €305,000, this is a 1,206 sq ft property which is still owned by the couple who first bought it in 2002.

“They put in a sunroom as well as cherrywood kitchen and have kept it beautifully,” says Mr Cronin.

Downstairs there’s a timber living room with a fireplace and double doors leading to a sunroom/dining room with a timber-panelled vaulted ceiling. At this level there’s also a guest WC, a utility room, and a kitchen diner. The first floor has a bathroom and three bedrooms including one en-suite.

One of a small number of detached houses in the 28-house development at Sliver Strand, it has sea views at the front. Facing on to a green area, it has an enclosed garden at the rear.

Situated within a ten-minute walk from amenities in the village, it is 16km from Midleton.

VERDICT: Tasteful and modern.


Size: 112 Sq m (1,206 sq ft)
