The front facade of this very well kept and decorated bungalow gives little away of its many charms once over the threshold, but the variety of interior pics on its selling agent’s brochure and online is already weaving a bit of a spell among home-hunters.
Set a five-minute drive north-east of Midleton at Ballyspillane (the new Midleton-Youghal greenway is due to pass close-by), this is a very well-presented home extended to the back and now over 1,300 sq ft, on a site of half an acre, with full planning permission for a 3,000 sq ft build on the pristine half acre. Auctioneer Adrianna Hegarty of Hegarty Properties launched this rural, but accessible, one-off and first viewings started on Wednesday, with lots of requests already for a visit.
The owners went for a restful, restrained and elegant look in a big makeover done around 2007, and used top brand name wallpapers and paints. Ms Hegarty says “it oozes character and charm, no expense was spared, resulting in a tasteful and quirky internal décor.” Accommodation includes two reception rooms, one with double aspect and the other has a high, vaulted wood-sheeted ceiling, a kitchen/breakfast room with quality appliances, TV room, utility, three bedrooms, main bathroom plus a shower. Externally there’s a detached garage with power supply, garden shed, glass-house, raised beds, and mature boundaries.
