This three-tier enclave of detached houses was a scheme of serviced sites begun in the 90s. It is now a mature collection of one-off houses, where sales are rare.
This week sees this house hit the early spring market.
The property is a familiar, Tudoresque dormer, but it packs over 2,000 square feet under its roof on nearly one-third of an acre.
The property is on the market with Terence O’Leary of Murray Browne who’s seeking offers in the region of €420,000 for this four-bed which should fit the bill for families trading up in the area, particularly those working at Apple in Hollyhill, or even, EMC in Ovens.
Tower has a thriving community base, a large local shopping and medical centre and is a quick commute to Cork city.
Towering Heights has stunning south-facing views and this house is very private, yet it’s a two minute walk to the supermarket, playground and a couple of minutes drive to school.
The house, while in need of a makeover, has everything a growing family needs, including a large back to front living/dining room, a separate living room/kitchen/ dining and a ground floor bedroom/study, with guest bathroom.
Overhead, there are two large bedrooms, including en suite master, a smaller room and a main bathroom.
The decor is rather dated and the house will need new flooring and a good lick of paint, but the bones are there for a fine, family house.
The main living room has an impressive white marble fireplace in its centre and double windows facing south, while at the rear, sliding doors lead out to a terrace, bordered by mature raised beds.
The main lawn rises up above this space and is level and sunny and bounded by tall hedging. It would work fine as a football pitch, or veggie patch, or even a sun balming spot, depending on one’s preferences.
The grounds are really well finished, with a dedicated raised terrace that gets the sun all day and tall trees and shrubs that protect the house and give it privacy. A curved, tarmac driveway and clever planting obscures it from the road too.
This property has convenience, accessibility, space and privacy — not a bad list to tick and well worth a look.
