The owners of 4 The Drive, in Cork’s Lehenaghmore, have been in occupation from day one. Now, ten years on, they are moving on — but the family home they leave behind is in great decorative order.
Built by Ruden Homes back in 2003, this four-bed detached home is just shy of 1,400 sq ft, notes selling agent Mark Rose of, who guides this buy at €280,000 and says it’s private as it’s the last in the row.
The decor standard is up a few notches on the norm, with American oak floors downstairs, attractive feature wallpapers, rad covers, chandeliers in the hall and landing, and with a very good kitchen at the house’s heart. There’s a front reception room off the hall with glazed double doors keeping the light passing through, there’s a study with built-in shelving, utility and guest WC, and overhead the master bedrooms’s en suite. The kitchen/dining room is across the house’s rear, with twin sets of double doors to the garden terrace, kitchen units are painted cream and units and island are topped in a light brown-coloured granite.
No 4 has off-street parking and good access to the rear garden, where there’s a shed and a wide seating out terrace, and a stepped down lawn beyond.
