Trading up: Glounthaune, Co Cork €475,000

After just a week or two on the market, this dormer home – one of seven at Corryfield a mile from Glounthaune east of Cork City – is already attracting attention. So says sale agent Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing.

He describes it as impressive, with an unusual and flexible open plan layout into the hallway with feature curved staircase, and early viewers seem to like it.

It’s quite a standard dormer in its outside appearance, even though there’s decent, south-facing sun room addition to the back, so it does seem to keep its individuality and differences to itself, until over the threshold at least.

Mr Olden seeks offers around €475,000 for the 2,400 sq ft family home in very good order inside and out, built back in the 2000s with a mix of private and linked rooms, and with multi-room, high-speed internet as well as surround sound/home cinema system wiring as an extra.

Main hub is the 32’ by 15’ kitchen/dining family area, with kitchen island, there’s a utility, guest WC, playroom or optional ground level bedroom, high-ceilinged sun room, and four more overhead bedrooms off a large landing, with one en suite and main family bathroom rounding out the rooms.

VERDICT: Near lots of amenities in Glounthaune, as well as a commuter rail station, this is one to view to appreciate the extras and design quirks and quality. A turn-key job, say the selling agents.
