Spacious property at good price

RECENTLY reworked on the interiors front, the five-bed, two-en suite family home Ave Maria packs a lot of property for its €300,000 guide.

The 1,800 sq ft house at Lyre, north Cork, is a 30-minute drive from the city and is new to market with John Paul Sheehan of Lisney, who says it is also close to the towns of Mallow, Kanturk and Millstreet, and so will suit a wide catchment of buyers.

Ave Maria is on mature grounds of half an acre, in a private village setting, with extensive views over Duhallow. “It is ideally suited to the first time buyers market,” says Sheehan – noting that there aren’t too many five-bed homes falling into this price category. The site allows for easy extension also, he adds, and a section can also be used as a granny flat.

“It’s been interior designed and is fully insulated, with a range of modern features, and there’s a large first-floor studio area with office,” he says.

Main living accommodation includes hall, open-plan living room, timber-floored sitting room, kitchen with patio access, utility/store, main bathroom, and two of the five bedrooms have en suites.
