Spacious country house

BACK on the market at a reduced price, Massabielle at Vicarstown, Blarney, is the kind of country house that will attract trader-uppers looking for a country pad with plenty of space and with local amenities nearby.

Sites are hitting the €200,000 plus mark in the area at the moment, which means this four to five bedroomed detached makes sense at the asking price of €550,000.

On an acre site, which has a vast expanse of terrace and a stream boundary, this property is in superb condition, says selling agent Jeremy Murphy of Downey McCarthy Murphy.

In fact, all you have to do is move in, he says.

Massabielle comes with three reception rooms, a large kitchen/diner, three bedrooms on the ground floor and a huge master suite on the upper level, which could fit two more bedrooms, if needed.

Ten minutes from Blarney and Tower, this dormer property is a quick commute to Cork city via the Mallow road.
