Ovens home with high energy rating thanks to insulation, triple glazing and solar panels

With its extra-spacious accommodation, highly efficient A energy rating, and stylish modern appearance, No 14 Lisheen Woods in Ovens does indeed appear to be the perfect family home that selling agent Sherry FitzGerald says it is.

New to the market with a guide of €470,000, the 2016-built detached house has almost 1,740sq ft of living space. “It’s in exceptional condition — the time, effort, and money that have been put into this family home are immediately evident,” says auctioneer Norma Healy.

The A3 energy rating has been achieved with a high level of insulation, triple glazing and solar panels. At the front of the house, there is a timber-floored living room with a fireplace and a bay window. To the rear, is a generous-sized kitchen dining room with modern cream units with silestone quartz countertops, integrated appliances, and a large island unit. Off the hallway there is a guest WC and off the kitchen, a utility room. The first floor has a bathroom and four bedrooms, including one at the front with an en suite and a walk-in wardrobe. The gardens are as well cared for as the interior — the area at the front is paved for parking while the back garden has a patio, a neatly maintained lawn with stepping stones, and a shed. Lisheen Woods is located just 2km outside Ballincollig.
