There’s a bit of architectural elan and individuality (and a whole lot of limestone walling) to the approach and front facade of this big family home called Siena, in a country setting 20 minutes west of Cork city, on a 0.6 acre site.
Good and large, Siena’s weighs in at 3,500sq ft, over two levels of bulked, two-storey home, timber framed in its construction and laid out to grab the sun at different points of the day; and, it has a fifth bedroom option too at ground floor level.
This home has underfloor heating, solar panels, clean lines, and a good mix of daytime rooms and bedrooms, with countryside views and spacious grounds for a lively family.
At ground alone, it has three reception rooms (living, dining and family room,) a triple aspect sun room, a playroom, a study/bed five with en suite, large kitchen with granite-topped oak units, utility, guest WC and a tiled hall, with American oak stairs.
Overhead, two of its four bedrooms are also en suite and most are double aspect rooms, while there’s a further, family bathroom, so having the solar as a water heating back-up is a boon.
Ms Healy says the level of finishes is high (oak and marble floors at ground etc) and it has been well-kept, and is is an easy shoe-in for a new family of owners, within a reasonable commute of the city and western suburbs, a few miles along country roads from Waterfall towards Crossbarry.
