IT’S a big, new house on a half acre site in one of Cork’s best-kept-secret addresses – so that gives no 3 Tower Hill at Kilcoolishal a head start in a competitive market.
Densely wooded and accessed by a country road that snakes past mature houses on large sites, Kilcoolishal is still only a short drive to the city.
South-facing over the lower harbour, this discrete enclave faces full south over the lower harbour and the stepped nature of the hillside mean good privacy for neighbours.
No 3 is on the market with Stephen Clarke of O’Donoghue Clarke Auctioneers who’s giving a guide of €550,000 for this new, four-bed property, but adds that he’s open to offers.
The gardens will need finishing, but this could be an advantage in that it can be designed to new owners’ specification – and Dunsland Garden Centre is just up the road. This area was great for growing strawberries in the past and with half an acre, there’s plenty of room for a polytunnel or veg patch.
Well worth viewing, just to appreciate the location and convenience, no 3 Tower Hill comes with big sitting room, a lovely, oak-fitted kitchen as part of a 27’ by 13’ kitchen/diner with utility, a lounge/playroom and ground floor, en suite bedroom.
Upstairs, there’s a master suite with walk-in wardrobe/study and bathroom, two double bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Houses don’t come up too often here, says Stephen Clarke and as the owners are relocating, they’re focused on selling.
