Garden bliss bonus with Passage bungalow

THE gardens will sell Wilton Heights, in Upper Ardmore in Cork’s Passage West, but the house is no slouch either.

Set above the Cork harbour town, now expanding with large and up-market developments pending and an ambitious waterfront scheme in the offing, this bungalow on a third of an acre of mature gardens hits the market as Passage’s fortunes are changing, but before prices rise fully to Rochestown levels.

The 1,370 sq ft four bedroomed bungalow was built in the early 1980s, and is on the market with Cearbhall Behan of Frank V Murphy auctioneers, jointly with Daniel Lehane in Dunmanway: they seek €495,000 for the perfect trader-up for those with gardening ambitions.

The grounds are well kept, with sloping lawns, sheltering trees, shrubs and terraced patios, with raised brick planted beds allowing for outdoor entertainment and dining. The house has an east/west aspect, has gas heating and rooms include hall, sitting room, kitchen/dining room and living space with stone fireplace, utility with garden access, four bedrooms some with built ins, and a shower room plus main family bathroom.

The interior is well-maintained but may need some modernisation.
