Trading up: Glanmire, Cork €395,000

Built just over 20 years ago, the part two-storey, part-dormer 2,200 sq ft family home called Snugboro could not be more centrally set in Cork’s Glanmire community.

Trading up: Glanmire, Cork €395,000

Close to the bottom of Church Hill and the Texaco station, as well as the Butlerstown river (there’s a gate to the river and wooded backdrop at the garden’s edge, by a seating area), it is set across the road from the noted Gael Choláiste, on a site of 0.2 of an acre with all amenities also close to hand and Cork City five miles away.

Estate agent Andrew Moore describes Snugboro as well-designed and well-presented, and it has good decor levels, plus a powerful-looking, black range cooker in the pine-fitted kitchen, which also has an Amtico floor.

The four-bed family home comes with two other well-sized reception rooms, and the 16’ by 14’ sitting room with open marble fireplace opens to a sun room on the end gable; there’s a guest WC plus utility, and the ground floor master bedroom is en suite.

Upstairs are three more bedrooms, some with distinctive arched windows and some woodland views, and one bedroom also has an en suite shower room.

Externally the rendered and painted detached house has some brick detailing in corner quoins, around windows, the entry porch and the sun-room’s low walls.

The grounds are private with lots of planting to complement the wooded setting, there’s a tarmac drive with space for several cars and the property has oil central heating.

VERDICT: Glanmire central.
