A country spread at Cloghroe with appeal for city folk

THIS stone-clad residential property at Cloghroe, Co Cork is a fine example of a country spread with appeal for city folk.

Just a minute’s walk from the centre of the bustling village of Tower (which is just a 10-minutes drive from the northside of Cork city), location will be the draw for this substantial house and 6.3 acres.

It’s utterly private, surrounded by lush, rolling countryside, with great views and it’s right in the heart of things. A family could walk to school from here – through the fields, too.

There has been good interest already, says agent Joe McCarthy, who’s looking for offers of €750,000 for this newly-built property.

Set at the end of a sweeping driveway, the house has five to six bedrooms, a very attractive black and white kitchen, lots of storage space, three big living rooms and four bathrooms, including a ground floor wet room.

There’s a double detached garage on the eastern side, which faces south over a valley. The ground work and walls are in place for an American horse barn, and there’s a large sand arena to the front. The remainder is laid out in paddock.

The house is at Dromin, Cloghroe, Co Cork and is on sale with Irish and European.
