Trish Dromey reports on a well-presented option in Cork’s Glanmire.
Additional space, such as that provided by the sunroom built on by the owners of 8 Ashington at Brooklodge in Glanmire, is always very welcome to buyers in search of a family home.
It now has almost 1,150 sq ft of accommodation which makes it quite spacious for a three-bed semi and, as an added attraction, it’s on a corner site and also has quite a large back garden.
Quoting a guide of €275,000 Gillian McDonnell of Sherry FitzGerald says the late 1990s-built house is modern, cosy and very well presented.
“It overlooks a green area at the front and is very convenient to a whole range of amenities including schools and a shopping centre and is within easy reach of the Jack Lynch Tunnel,” she adds.
Inside the property there’s a timber-floored sitting room with a pale grey colour scheme and a black fireplace.
At the rear there’s a long kitchen dining room with cream units, a pale blue kitchen island and French doors to the garden.
The sunroom is accessed through the kitchen has oak flooring, and a vaulted timber panelled ceiling.
Upstairs is a bathroom and three bedrooms including one with an en suite.
The property has quite a sizeable garden at the rear with a patio and a lawn enclosed by high block walls.
Ashington is located a little over a kilometre from Hazelwood shopping centre and is a round 4.5 km from the Dunkettle roundabout.
Houses in Ashington don’t seem to come on the market too often; the last sale shown on the price register is that of No 12 which sold for €275,000 in October 2016.
Probably space to build on again.
