ALTHOUGH it still looks like a relatively modest-sized bungalow from the front, this property at Roxborough in Midleton is now an extra-spacious split-level house. Reduced this week from €395,000 to €380,000, it has 2,680sq ft of accommodation which includes four sitting rooms and five bedrooms as well as a basement.
Joint selling agents Barry auctioneers and Cronin Wall Properties say it’s a very well-kept modern home which around ten years ago was totally transformed by the addition of a two-storey extension at the rear.
Accommodation includes a large open-plan dining/living area/kitchen with timber flooring and kitchen units as well as a formal dining room, a lounge and a TV room/playroom. The property also has a bathroom and five double bedrooms including one on the first floor, added during the extension, which has scenic countryside views, a walk-in wardrobe and an en-suite with a Jacuzzi bath. In the basement there’s a utility room and a guest WC.
The half-acre site has extensive lawned gardens at the rear, a patio and a detached garage with an attached office. “It’s conveniently located within a five-minute drive from shops, schools and restaurants in Midleton and a 20-minute one from Cork city,” reveals auctioneer Terry Hayes.
VERDICT: Surprisingly spacious.
