BRIEFLY on the market late in 2016, Bridesmond House has come back on the new spring season with blooms and bulbs set to burst into colour, and the price readjusted, up €10,000 to a revised AMV of €460,000 quoted by Olivia O’Leary of Thomas J O’ auctioneers.

She says the smart and surprisingly large c 2,700 sq ft five-bed home was built by its owners about 20 years ago, and they are now trading down, having enjoyed decades here, aided and abetted by a garden site of a decent 0.7 of an acre. 

The brick-faced dormer has all five of its bedrooms up at first floor level, three en-suite and one opening to a sheltered sit-out balcony under the roof gable pitch, overlooking the back garden, patio and pergola.

Down at ground level, there’s a sitting room with antique fireplace with solid fuel stove; a second reception/TV has a fireplace with gas insert within an oak surround; and, further, there’s a dining room, gym/playroom/home office, utility, guest WC, walk-in closet and kitchen/breakfast room, which has white, painted units and white splashback tiles.

There are long valley views from the grounds, which include a feature garden with pergola, lush planting and pond at lower rear garden level, there’s also a garage with roller shutter door, and the location at Ballincrokig is within a five-minute drive of Blackpool, along the Carrignavar Road.

VERDICT: Spacious, well-kept and easily accessed.
