Two-in-one at exclusive Midleton residence

BIG house, big site and both can be sold separately, or apart.

St Jude’s, in the exclusive, Castleredmond area of Midleton is a typical, 1970s two-storey in impeccable condition and surrounded by equally good grounds.

The groomed site comes with outline planning for a separate dwelling, and selling agent Eilish Honan of Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan is open to offers on both.

She gives an overall guide of €900,000 for the entire property (€600,000-€650,000 for the house and €250,000-€300,000 for the site).

St Jude’s is within walking distance of the bustling east Cork town, she says, and is located off the Dark Road, between the Bailick and Whitegate roads.

Utterly private and in a neighbourhood of detached houses on large sites, it’s one of the most sought-after areas in Midleton.

The property has been well-maintained over the years, and includes separate living accommodation with its own access. This apartment could work as consulting rooms, a home office or nanny flat.

The main house offers plenty of space: There’s an L-shaped lounge/dining room with a white Carrera marble fireplace with dimensions of 20’ by 26’. The kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the garden and connects to the west-facing sun room, while a living room adjacent could function as a fourth bedroom. The apartment is also connected to the house via the sunroom and this studio comes with a separate kitchen and bathroom.

On the upper level there are three bedrooms: The master is en suite and it comes with a charming Juliet balcony to the side of the house. St Jude’s has a main bathroom and a guest suite off the main hallway.
