Trading up: Clonakilty, Cork €425,000

Because it’s close to a nearby beach and has a huge garden for laying in, this Clonakilty property could prove a big hit with the children of a trading-up family.

Their parents will also appreciate the sea views, the fact that it’s a modern five-bed house with 2,340 sq ft of living space and its coastal location, four and a half miles from Clonakilty.

Seeking offers of €425,000, auctioneer Martin Kelleher says this is an attractive well kept property with solar panels, which was built 10 years ago. 

On a site of just under an acre, it has a large double garage, which he says could be used as a workshop.

Very spacious accommodation includes two living rooms, a kitchen dining room, a utility room, a ground floor bathroom, as well as an en suite ground floor bedroom.

Upstairs there are four timber-floored bedrooms and a bathroom. Distant views of the sea can be seen from two of the bedrooms as well as the kitchen. 

In the gardens there’s a stone pillar entrance, a substantial parking area, and an expanse of lawned gardens. 

Situated at Farran in South Ring, the house is 1.5 miles from Ring village.

“Less than a mile away at Nun’s Cove there’s a quiet, sandy beach that not a lot of people know about,’’ says Mr Kelleher. 

VERDICT: Plenty of space for living and playing
