Woodland setting makes four-bed Abbotswood ideal for family living

ABBOTSWOOD has its aspect and its woodland setting going for it — apart from its location off the Rochestown road on Cork city’s high-demand south side.

And right now there’s a house in the estate and a site with full planning permission off Monastery Road, both on offer through Jeremy Murphy of Jeremy Murphy and Associates.

The house is at No 4 Abbotswood Avenue and it’s a fine, four-bed with a great back garden. High up and in a cul de sac location, the ground drops below the house and looks over the roof tops of its neighbours, across a green and leafy valley.

The setting is great and the generosity of the grounds will tempt family buyers looking for a move-in buy. And that’s only the outside: inside it’s spick and span with a good, rectangular living room and an equally large kitchen/dining room.

Fitted in cherrywood units and looking onto the south-east facing garden, it’s a bright comfortable and well-designed room with a utility off and double doors leading straight out to the garden.

Overhead, there’s a good master suite, with two more double rooms and a tiny box room that’s perfect as a study. This could go in favour of an attic conversion, as there’s plenty of space overhead: a number of the neighbours have already converted.

A warm, good-sized family home, no 4 Abbotswood Avenue is on offer at €392,500 through Jeremy Murphy of Jeremy Murphy and Associates.

The same agent is also selling a large site on the approach to the estate which is set behind woodland and paddock fencing.

A long approach makes for a private and impressive driveway and while the plot of highly visible from the back of the another dwelling, fast-growing plants on the boundary would take care of privacy issues.

There’s over half an acre on offer in this sought-after and very green location and Jeremy Murphy is looking for offers of €365,000 for the site, which is part of a larger garden at the moment.

However, the new driveway is already in place, and is quite impressive, while planning is in place for a three-storey, split-level five bed running to just under 3,000 sq ft.

The entrance is directly off Monastery Road, but on a private road serving a handful of detached houses to the rear of Abbotswood.
