Ideal rural environment at Bishopsgate for families

THE price of an inner city semi in Cork city will buy this detached five-bed in Watergrasshill, Co Cork, which hits the market at €495,000.

The property, at 4 Bishopsgate is just a 10 minute commute but has a safe rural environment for young families.

And it also offers plenty of space, which is essential for the same reason and has some 2,100 sq ft on offer.

Set in a small scheme with just five other houses, the house is right in the heart of the village of Watergrasshill and is just three years old.

According to selling agent, Jeremy Murphy of Jeremy Murphy and Associates, the house is an ideal trader-upper, and it has good amenities, including a local supermarket and pharmacy on the doorstep.

Plus it has a really good interior, he says, with a well equipped and designed kitchen and a range of good reception rooms.

These include a formal living room, a separate dining room with patio door to the rear garden and a big kitchen with breakfast bar fitted in maple.

Then, there’s a lounge overlooking the front of the house, a utility room off the kitchen and, finally, a ground floor bedroom with guest bathroom adjoining.

Four bedrooms and a bathroom are on the upper floor and the main bedroom is ensuite.

The back garden is fully south-facing and has big old trees on the hedged boundary. It’s not overlooked and is a great recreational space, says Mr Murphy.

In a quiet, cul de sac location, no 4 Bishopsgate is ideal for young families, he adds.
