An oasis of tranquillity is what this pretty bungalow is all about

A MATURE bungalow home that has it all — location, gardens and charm — is up for grabs in Beaumont, Cork city.

No 16 Dundanion Road is just off Beaumont Drive and near the Crescent in Ballintemple, with Blackrock butting up on one side, Douglas on the other, and with the nearby €500m Mahon Point scheme a further attraction.

But, for all the busyness in the neighbouring suburbs, Dundanion Road is a model of tranquillity, and the road has an air of well-settled gentility to it.

A three/four bed bungalow, no 16 was built in 1948, and has that solid, honest, homely feel to it, with old wood and tiled floors, high ceilings and extensive gardens to the back.

There is also a detached garage, green house, a raised patio beyond an add-on breakfast room and an attic bedroom en suite. In good decorative condition throughout, the house is on the market with Paul Reid of Sherry FitzGerald who guides it at €350,000.

The house has about 1,750 sq ft of space, with a lounge and dining room, both with nicely aged pine floors. The kitchen has pine units, pine vaulted ceiling and a walk-through here leads to a bright breakfast room opening to a private patio.

Both the lounge and main downstairs bedrooms have south-facing bay windows, and the ground level has one other bedroom plus a 8’ by 8’ study.

Open tread pine stairs have been well slotted into the entrance hall, to give access to an attic level bedroom, with a maximum measurement of 27’ by 14’, but out of this is cut space for the stairs and an en suite. The ceilings, pine clad, slope down to a low level to provide access to storage space behind.

Both the shower in the en suite, and the bath surround in the main ground level family bathroom have painted tiles by artist John Verling, and the front door has a stained glass panel and attractive brick arch over the stepped-back door. The house has gas central heating, an alarm, long and colourfully planted back gardens with apple trees and mature screening, with lots of parking in front.
