Since he sold the house next door to 17 Oak Drive at Castle Heights in Carrigaline in a little over three weeks earlier this year, selling agent Michael Pigott is hoping to achieve an equally speedy sale for Number 17 now.
Very modern and energy-efficient, it is a two-year-old, four-bed detached house with an A3 BER rating and a guide of €450,000.
Describing it as well finished and in showhouse condition, Mr Pigott says the location at Castle Heights, within a five-minute drive from Carrigaline, is a popular one.
“It’s close to amenities and services and is just a short commute to Cork city centre, Cork Airport and Ringaskiddy,” he says.
The house has been well-equipped for family living, adds Mr Pigott. Its 2,000sq ft of accommodation includes two living rooms as well as two en-suite bedrooms.
At the front it has a large timber-floored sitting room which has a full-height window and marble fireplace fitted with a multi-fuel stove.
Running along the width of the house at the back is a kitchen-diner with tiled flooring and high-gloss units with integrated appliances and a breakfast bar.
Overlooking the back garden there’s also a TV room/lounge with timber flooring and a large corner window.
Other ground-floor rooms include a utility space and a guest WC.
The upper floor has a modern bathroom and four timber-floored bedrooms including two with en-suite shower rooms and one which has been decorated as a child’s room with some wall art.
The front of the house has a cobble-lock driveway and a green area while the back garden has a lawn and some trees and beds which need a little time to mature.
Situated in a row of similar detached houses also built in 2017,
The most recent sale in Oak Drive was that of No 18, the house next door, which Mr Piggott sold for €455,000.
VERDICT: Smart and modern.
