Although some homeowners decorate as if bright colours were in short supply, this is definitely not the case for 16 The Willows in Castlemartyr where the occupants show a full appreciation of the joy of colour.
Turquoise green/blue is their theme colour, seen outside in the bistro table on the front porch and taken into the hallway and the living room and through to the kitchen where the chairs are also painted in this shade.
Since buying the three-bed semi new in 2003, the owners have extended the kitchen, decorated colourfully and tiled the landing. They added a grey railed decking area in the back garden with an extendable canopy which allows them to sit out in any weather. A purple front door gives the property individuality which is carried thought into the hallway which has one deep turquoise wall and elaborate floral wallpaper on one section of the stairs wall.
The living room fireplace has been painted deep turquoise while the kitchen has grey shaker style units teamed with a turquoise radiator cover. There’s also a guest WC and a small study and a small utility room. Upstairs there’s a bathroom and three bedrooms, one en suite.
Situated in Gort an Oir development, the property is within a five-minute walk from Castlemartyr and nine kilometres from Midleton. Seeking offers of €210,000 James Colbert of Colbert & Co Estate Agents says it’s a beautiful home with wonderful colourss.
VERDICT: Colourful enough to help banish autumn blues.
