Extended three-bed Blarney cottage has been brought bang up to date

Brought bang up to date is this extended three-bed semi-detached Shean, Blarney cottage, new to market, and on a site as well kept as the house.

Neatly clipped beech hedges trim the decent-sized site’s boundaries, there’s landscaping, lawns edged by re-used rail sleepers, and decking behind, with French doors back to the house. Internally, it’s neat as a new pin, with cast iron wood-burning stove in the main living room which has a vaulted ceiling, the main bedroom has a shower room en suite and there’s two other compact bedrooms also in the mix.

It has been extended to the rear, with a bathroom, new bedroom and kitchen put on, so now there’s 1,100 sq ft of space, notes estate agent Paul O’Driscoll of Thos J O’Driscoll & Co.

Location is on Station Road, within a walk of the village of Blarney, and while Cork City’s a short drive away, Blarney’s well-serviced in its own right.

The kitchen’s newly-fitted, with tiled floor and ceramic sink, while there’s a corner Jacuzzi bath in the main bathroom with shower overhead.

VERDICT: A nice alternative to the standard estate semi-d.
