Tucked away at the end of a cul de sac in Rochestown, Number 14 Manor Downs offers excellent space and privacy as well as countryside and harbour views.
Significantly expanded and improved since it was built in 1989, it has five bedrooms and isn’t very far off of having 2,000sq ft of living space. Extended at both the side and the rear as well as reconfigured on the inside, it’s been insulated and fitted with solar panels and now has a high B3 BER rating.
Clearly a well-minded family home, it has two living rooms — one an oak-floored family room with a modern solid fuel stove insert and the other a more formal sitting room with a marble fireplace. In addition to a kitchen-breakfast room featuring cream units with granite worktops, it also has a formal dining room for entertaining. To the rear the property also has a guest WC and a utility room.
Upstairs there’s a bathroom, three double bedrooms (two en-suite) and two single bedrooms. The master bedroom has views of Cork Harbour in the distance. On a larger corner site, the property has paved parking area at the front and a mature southwest-facing back garden with an Indian sandstone patio.
Guiding the property at €495,000 Michael O’Donovan of Savills says this is a superbly decorated property in an excellent location.
