Bright dormer built to sell

A COUPLE prepared to commute to get the quality home they require should give this house, at Lackabane, Donoughmore, the once-over.

Not only is it new, with a high B2 rating, it’s also open to offers in the region of €360,000, considerably less than you’d pay in an area closer to Cork city.

The property was built to sell, and, according to selling agent, Sarah O’Keeffe, of Fleming Auctioneers, it’s a superb house with a superb finish.

“The house has excellent proportions and is as light-filled as you could possibly find, and for a dormers it’s very deceiving and very impressive.

“The house is presented perfectly, with neutral painting throughout, solid-oak doors and porcelain tiling. There’s a fitted, contemporary kitchen and the gardens are finished immaculately,” she says.

This dormer is slightly edgy in design, too, and the bulk of the property is cleverly broken up, with extended roof lines and the use of large, corner windows and bays.

According to Sarah O’Keeffe, it’s a really bright house with a generous, 246 square metres of space divided into five bedrooms, four bathrooms and a number of living rooms.

The house stands on just over a half acre of landscaped grounds, and is right in the middle of the north Cork countryside.

The agent recently sale-agreed an American-style house at Carrigmichael, Firmount, which appeared on these pages, for close to €390,000, and Sarah O’Keeffe is looking for offers close to €360,000 for this spanking new house.
