Lakeshore life a bankable option

YOU don’t have to go far from Cork for lakeshore properties — Dunmanway will do.

A small estate of just eight houses called Aras na Locha is going up at Chapel Lake and the size and price are enough to make a city buyer weep.

Weighing in at 2,500sq ft apiece, with two house types, these detached properties are just launched with Daniel Lehane of Lehane and Associates at €465,000.

Set in a cul-de-sac, close to the water and within walking distance of the town, the houses are being developed by Hurley and White, a local team of builders.

They have an excellent reputation, says Lehane, evidenced in the showhouse, where the quality of finish is top class.

The houses are also eco-friendly with high insulation and a geo-thermal system which gives underfloor heating throughout the ground floor.

Fixtures and fittings are above average and Aras na Locha houses come with undeveloped attic space which would add another 500sq ft to the available floor space. Each unit also comes with an attached garage, four bedrooms, a range of living rooms and two bathrooms.

The interior-designed showhouse is well worth a look for anyone shopping in the west Cork area and it’s open by appointment with the agents.
