Bishopstown dream home — amen to that

GOLFERS may be familiar with the name of this house, Amen Corner, at Rossbrook, on Cork’s Model Farm Road.

Amen Corner refers to the 11th, 12th and 13th holes at Augusta National; the epithet was inspired by a jazz record called Shouting in the Amen Corner.

Despite the name, there’s no evidence of fanatical devotion to the small ball here. Just a nice, comfortable house in a nice, comfortable area of Bishopstown where there’s always huge demand.

Daniel Lehane of Lehane and Associates, Dunmanway, is looking for offers in excess of €650,000 for the four-bed, detached home which he says comes with a luxurious finish.

It is smart inside with the right amount of room for a family trading up, plus good-quality wooden floors, a well-fitted kitchen and decorative patio.

It has great privacy, says Daniel Lehane, and isn’t overlooked at the rear, while the lawn and surrounding beds are nicely matured.

Inside, the house comes with a living room, dining room, family room, kitchen, utility and guest WC on the ground floor.

Overhead are four bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a main bathroom.

Fifteen years old and on a corner site, this property is well worth a look over, says the agent.
