Five-bed detached has easy access to commuter routes

‘LET the market decide’ — that’s the pitch taken by auctioneer, Jeremy Murphy with regard to a smart, infill development at Parkgate in Frankfield, Cork.

The ERA Downey McCarthy Murphy agent is selling four five-bed detached houses off the plans and gives a starting point of €625,000 for the properties, but expects that to rise in the bidding.

The €2.5 million development will be called The Village and is accessed off East Avenue in Parkgate.

This is an ideal commuter location as it’s just off the Link road at the ironically re-named Magic Roundabout.

Also, a brand new school in the area is to built this year making it less that five minutes walk away.

Developers are Pat Lehane and Carol Scanlon and the building contractor is Pat O’Brien from West Cork, who’s garnered an excellent reputation so far, according to Jeremy Murphy.

Designed by Ballincollig engineer, Denis O’Sullivan, the houses will be very high spec, he says.

Driveways will be cobble-locked, kitchens will be to a very high standard, and bathrooms will come fully tiled. A choice of fireplaces is also envisaged for the houses. Each property will come fully finished, including landscaping and painting.

Rooms are spread over three floors with one large, en suite bedroom in the attic and two other en suite bedrooms on the first floor.

The master includes a walk-in wardrobe and two of the bedrooms share a main bathroom.

A gallery landing overlooks the spacious hallway, which is accessed via a small entrance porch.
