Family residence has added appeal

A VERY GOOD, bright and functional sun room has been grafted on to the back of 22 Old Court, a detached four-bed family home by Ballincollig’s Greenfields scheme west of Cork city.

Carrying an asking price of €395,000 via Sheila O’Flynn of Sherry FitzGerald, this trading up family home has 1,650 sq ft of space thanks to its well-conceived back extensions. And, in addition, a floored and adaptable attic (with pull-down stairs) adds to the tally for families needing extra space, for study, storage or play.

No 22 has a formal 14’ by 12’ main reception room, with cast iron fireplace, the rear family room extends and opens out, via glazed concertina folding doors, to an extra-long sunny back room extension, with glazing at the far end, side and again in patio doors, along with overhead roof skylights to get the brightness up.

The U-shaped kitchen units are Shaker-style in maple, with a mosaic tiled floor, while the hall, utility and guest WC floors are also tiled.

Upstairs, the master bedroom (with bay window) is en suite, and two of the other three bedrooms are singles. No 22 has gas heating, a south/west corner site aspect, off-street parking in front, and a walled-in back garden.
