Smart detached bungalow

THERE’s over 1,500 sq ft of space in the smartly kept four-bed detached bungalow Brickfield House at Copperalley Road in east Cork’s coastal town of Youghal, and you also get a floored useful attic and a 350 sq ft detached garage to boot.

On the market with local agent Noel Mackey, Brickfield House has a €350,000 asking prices, and is a walk-in job, well decorated and perfectly maintained, he says.

Gardens are as good as the house, with clipped lawns and lots of paved drive area for parking and playing.

One of the four bedrooms is en suite, there’s a large kitchen/dining/living room with multi-fuel stove, and a separate living room. Location is good, on the edge of the town just along the Dungourney road, with easy access to the town and the N25.
