Scheme delivers the right, and white, goods

ON a country crossroads and using the Irish translation, Slighe Dhála for its name, this niche development of four, detached houses is located just outside Dunmanway at Lisbealand, Co Cork.

The houses, which offer a lot of family space, are three miles from Dunmanway town at Clubhouse Cross and are a 45-minute drive to Cork city. Not surprisingly for such a rural location, the properties are on large sites with a generous amount of parking to the front.

Estate agent, Daniel Lehane is currently selling the showhouse in the scheme at a guide price of €480,000 — and that’s lock, stock and barrel.

All of the heavy white goods are included in the sale, down to a washing machine and tumbler dryer and three of the four bedrooms come with double beds, (including linen) and the children’s room comes with two single beds.

The ground floor has a 24’ by 24’ open plan , kitchen/dining room. It has a country cream fitted kitchen at one end, with matching suite and at the other, there’s a living room with impressive fireplace and a chocolate leather suite. The sitting room is 24’ by 13’ and fitted with more soothing colours and softer fabrics.

Ancillary rooms include a utility and guest WC at ground level with two en suite bedrooms and a main bathroom overhead.

And for those who can’t make the jump to the €480,000 asking price — the second last house on offer is on the market at €370,000, but without the same finish.
