Trading up: Ballincollig, Cork €435,000

Some home hunters’ days of roaming the range will be up at Dunroamin House, in Cork’s Kilnaglory, near Ballincollig.

Trading up: Ballincollig, Cork €435,000

It’s one of the those ‘more than first meets the eye’ homes, says John Barry, associate director with Frank V Murphy & Co auctioneers as he notices a certain trend when families come to view.

“The women tend to go straight to the house, and the men to the sheds,” he quips — and, well, granny or grandad can potter along too, as there’s a granny flat as well.

On a decent 0.8 of an acre site out near Ballinora GAA, south of the Ballincollig bypass, Dunroamin House is, indeed, deceptive, and recently upgraded, with a good C2 BER.

With 1,600 sq ft, it has two of its four bedrooms en suite, has three reception rooms plus conservatory, kitchen, utility, and store.

There’s also a granny flat with living room, kitchen, bedroom, and two bathrooms, plus, nearby a garage.

Then, to the end of the site (with two access points) is a complex of stables/four loose boxes, plus two block-built sheds, each of c 600 sq ft, so room for horses, dogs, or hobbies, but the grazing will have to be sourced locally.

VERDICT: Roaming dun and dusted.
