Ballintemple beauty

EXTENDED a few years ago, both off the kitchen and the back family room, is 56, Upper Beaumont Drive, in Cork’s Ballintemple suburb.

Near schools, a good public park and walks by Beaumont quarry, and with suburbs like Blackrock, Mahon and Douglas all near by too, it is a good, solid, and relatively unchanging address and location, with maturity on its side.

Maturity also graces the front of No 56, with a good autumnal cloak of Virginia creeper up its front facade now shedding its last few leaves.

It is new to market with joint agents Cohalan Downing and Frank V Murphy & Co, with a €375,000 asking price for its 1,580 sq ft of space — with more than half of that at the extended ground floor level.

Beyond the polished wood-floored hall to the right are interconnecting sitting room (18’ by 13’) and family room beyond, extended to the back with a couple of overhead Veluxes, and a few French doors link the rooms and on out to the patio too.

The extended kitchen also has garden access, via a clear glazed door, with a dining room back towards the middle of the house off the hall. There’s also a utility, and guest WC, while overhead are three bedrooms plus bathroom with shower. South facing No 56 has a 12’ by 12’ attic room as a crowning addition, with Veluxes.

In good overall shape, and with a well-kept gravelled front garden, plus side and back gardens with a wide sweep of flagged patio, No 56 is a ready to move into inner suburban buy.
