A once-tired 1930s bungalow at 8 Covent Terrace in Clonakilty has been transformed into an up to the minute, boutique residence that’s proving particularly attractive to downsizers.
End of terrace in a row of four, the two bed property has a new improved A3 energy rating achieved with an air to water heat pump, triple glazed windows and a high level of insulation.
To equip it for modern living the builders, who bought it last year, also put in a contemporary high gloss kitchen, a new shower room and timber flooring with underfloor heating.
“It’s a cleverly redesigned two bed property which has been renovated to the highest specification,’’ say selling agents Martin Kelleher Properties quoting a guide of €260,000.
It has 620 sq ft of living space including an open plan kitchen living room, which has large windows and modern white units with integrated appliances.
In addition to two double bedrooms and a shower room there’s also a small utility room. The bungalows have a west facing gravelled patio at the front, parking at the side and a long garden at the rear, which has just been seeded.
“It’s in a quiet mature residential area within an easy walk of all amenities in the town centre and is an economical , easy to keep as well easy to heat home,’’ says Mr Kelleher. The Property Price Register shows 8 Convent Terrace, which was originally a three bed, selling for €117,000 in December last year.
Seems tailor made for a downsizer.
