Tommy Barker discovers a four-bed home that comes with a second three-bed guest bungalow and stables.

Do a double-take on spring-suited site in 'the Ballyorban triangle'

There’s a house type for every season, and, right now, this Ballyorban property mix is coming into its own, on spring-suited grounds of 1.3 acres, with stables.

Launched low-key in a Christmas holiday lull, this pretty extensive lot with four-bed home plus second three-bed guest bungalow is now getting second viewings, and “its even better second time around,” says estate agent Terry Hayes of Barry Auctioneers.

He describes the location as “the Ballyorban triangle”, between Monkstown, Moneygourney, and Garryduff where houses typically are on large sites.

Nearby, Rockforest Homes are set to build 30 homes at Moneygourney; and, a top-quality family home which went to market in September alongside this latest offer has sold, it’s understood, for over its €720,000 asking price.

Terry Hayes seeks offers of €625,000 for this double-house, land and stables offering, and has a bid under €600k but is confident that spring will drive on interest further as its outdoor attractions (described as lovingly crafted mature gardens) gain traction.

The principal dwelling is 2,100 sq ft with two reception rooms, and four double bedrooms, plus kitchen/dining room and utility, and the second, smaller house has three beds, kitchen, living room and bathroom.

For those into horses or pets, there are two stables, plus yard, all 5kms from Douglas village, and 4kms from Carrigaline.

VERDICT: A two-of/one-off, in a convenient country location.

Ballyorban, Cork


Size: 195 sq m plus 77 sq m
