All-in-one living at three-bed in Mount Oval

THE ‘village living’ concept has really taken hold at Mount Oval Village, Cork, where many locals never move outside this integrated development. After all, why go further when you can walk to the creche, pub, hairdressers and local restaurant without the hassle of taxis or traffic.

It has a strong appeal for young families, in which both parents work and want to enjoy their downtime, and it’s exactly the kind of buyer auctioneer, Billy Casey of Casey and Kingston Auctioneers, is seeking for number 100, Ardkeale.

A smart, three-bed house, it’s end-of-terrace, roomy, bright and very well-finished. And the location is just minute’s from the development’s centre in a pretty and quiet cul-de-sac of houses.

It’s on the market at €320,000, and comes with a decent living room with Danish-blue wooden flooring, (running throughout the ground floor), feature fireplace, and double doors from a wide hallway.

In the bright dining room, patio doors lead to the garden and the kitchen is galley-style to one side, and stretches into the garden with a good range of built-ins.

The garden comes with a shed, raised beds and patio area, while, at the front, there’s a little planting space behind railings.

Overhead, number 100 has a master suite, with mirrored robes, and two double bedrooms with main bathroom.
