No pig called Arnold, no rooster, no Hungarian slapschtick courtesy of Eva Gabor, and no having to make phonecalls up a telegraph pole. Yes, indeed, Green Acres has a lot of name and connotation to live up to.
This Green Acres hasn’t got a salesman named Mr Haney either, but it has got the next best thing: a selling agent called Henry.
Auctioneer Henry O’Leary of Property Partners is selling this Innishannon homestead, a modern build and large home on a site just above the town of a full three acres, give or take. He seeks offers over €850,000 for the property mix which, he says, is deceptively spacious.
A full 3,000 sq ft of space is no deception, though, with four en suite bathrooms, and the house is done to a good high level throughout, possibly deceiving by its regular brick front facade. In addition, there’s a detached garage of over 700 sq ft, which could be used for a range of uses, form offices to stables, depending on needs. With three acre of grounds, there’s enough room for sure for a horse, pony, donkey...or a pig called Arnold.
According to Mr O’Leary, this is a real family lifestyle buy, with privacy assured and a good position, along with views down over the Bandon river valley all within a downhill walk to Innishannon village and a short commute to Cork city.
Green Acres has one of its four bedrooms at ground level, and the main living quarters are open plan, with a top-end kitchen straight out of the contemporary look catalogue. There’s a utility room, study, and space galore on the outside for a pony and a gallop.
