A large, detached house, 37 Fernwalk, in Greenfields, Killumney, Co Cork, is a fresh entry this week and its size, site and location off the Ballincollig bypass will make it very attractive to trader-uppers. Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald is selling this four to five bed house and it has just under 2,300 square feet of space on a big, square, south-facing site.
And all for €720,000.
The family here are moving to a city location the better to feed to schools, sports and other after-school activities.
It’s a reluctant move as the house and its large site fill their structural, if not locational needs.
But someone’s loss is someone’s gain and here you move into a modern, fully finished property with a safe, walled-in site.
And it’s set in a quiet and mature part of Greenfields, but with easy access to Ballincollig (whose new town is shaping up nicely) and the ring road network.
Ground floor rooms include a double length living/dining space with central fireplace and direct access to the kitchen with a separate study on the opposite side of the entrance hallway. The rear, sunny side of the house has a big kitchen/diner/sunroom looking out over the landscaped gardens and large lawn. Next door is a family room, also with double doors to the garden.
The kitchen is built in birch, a very unusual choice, but then it’s made by Coach House kitchens and includes solid wood and granite worktops in a great, workable configuration.
The utility is off to one side and a generous, guest bathroom is off the main hallway.
Overhead, there’s a long, u-shaped landing with a really big master bedroom, (a 6’ bed fits in easily here), and double doors lead through to a fine, dressing room. Next door is the en suite bathroom.
The second, double room is also en suite and bedrooms three and four share a big, four-piece bathroom.
There are lots of other extras included in the sale and in terms of value for money, this house is worth seeing.
