Location makes Summercove pad a house for all seasons

THE lyrically-named Windspray, at Summercove, Co Cork, is of it’s era, and that’s not the Georgian period in which it was built, but the Laura Ashley/stripped pine phase of it 1990s makeover.

A three storey, end of terrace, the house is positioned in the centre of this hamlet, just behind the Bulman pub and is on the market with Andrew Carlos Clarke of Keane Mahony Smith.

Priced at €850,000, the house will need some work to bring it up to sleek, 21st century standards, but the location makes it a sound investment.

And who knows, the buyer could be on the doorstep.

Developer and multi-millionaire, Gerry Gannon, who has a sizeable chunk of Straffan in Co Kildare, next to his K Club, last year purchased the Bulman bar for €2 million and also has a holiday home in the area, so this could be added to the collection.

The house has lots of quirky features and offers a first floor living room, a ground floor kitchen with a large, undeveloped living room to the front, and three bedrooms on the top floor, along with two bathrooms.

There are walled-in gardens to the front and side, and access to a lush and private garden at the rear, where there’s a garden shed of the same vintage as the house.
