Ormond offers value

A HIGH hedge shelters the suburban Cork city home Ormond, both from the elements, and from the world outside.

This 2,100 sq ft detached four-bedroomed home is at the edge of the 1960s-built Bellair Estate, linking the city ends of both the Douglas and Ballinlough Roads, with shops and services to hand, and a short jaunt to the city centre as well.

Relaunched to sell, after a brief late 2008 flurry on the market, Ormond has a reduced €485,000 AMV quoted by Conor Smith of Kevin Sullivan Estates, and he says there’s lots of house on offer.

Ormond has two reception rooms, one front, one back, both with fireplaces (one gas), a side conservatory overlooking the screened gardens separated from the generous parking spaces, a kitchen with maple units, and a big, really practical and adaptable utility, plus guest WC.

Upstairs the front of the house is home to the master bedroom on the left, and a big en suite bathroom on the right. Then, there are two more bedrooms at this level, plus main bathroom. Go up another flight of stairs, and there’s a fourth 18’ by 12’ bedroom at attic level, with two rear-facing Veluxes, looking out on mature back boundary trees.

The rear of the house links into the attached garage, with two workspaces/sheds, decking, and a water feature.
