Four-bed bungalow has rural setting but is just minutes away from city

OFFERS over €430,000 are canvassed for this Briar Hill home - a four-bed bungalow in a rural setting which has brought something of the city out to it.

The night-time glow from Cork city is visible here, as the city is five miles away from this elevated ridge on the West Cork road.

However, in almost 30 years of steady one-off building, Briar Hill - with a Waterfall address - also has its name up in lights: street-lights now run most of its length.

Agents Cahalane Skuse stress the ease of access back to the city from here, and contrast that with pastoral views left behind this string of family homes.

Rooms at the house include living room, dining room, study, four bedrooms, one with en suite, bathroom, smart contemporary kitchen with white oak built-ins and granite worktops with pale neutral tiled floor, and other timbers featuring are extensive use of ash flooring and teak stair, while the living room has a brick fireplace.

Heating is by oil, windows are wood-grain PVC matched in with the part-stone facade, and the house is on a quarter-acre site with a southerly aspect.
