Move out from the suburbs but keep the convenience factor

IT'S the gardens that will catch the eye of viewers for this property at Raffeen Hill in Monkstown, Co Cork.

Mature, immaculately tended, private and secluded are just some of the descriptive terms and the house ain't bad either.

With 2,000 square feet to play around with in a setting that's country but convenient, Rivendell might be the solution for those looking to move from the 'burbs without losing the convenience. Carrigaline is just up the road and the commute to Cork city should take 20 minutes in good traffic.

What's more, the property is priced at €420,000 through Harris Auctioneers, making it a good buy for a four-bed, two en suite bungalow.

The house is well-finished and comes with a large and well fitted kitchen/diner, a living room and connecting family room, as well as a main bathroom and laundry room.
