There’s a bit of a colour theme going on at 11, Ashdale Drive, and you pick up on it from the front door, straight away: it’s painted red.

There’s a cheerful hue, setting a warm entrance tone to this lofty-looking, detached 2,000 sq ft home, handily near the commuter rail station in Carrigtwohill.

The glossy kitchen units are red, some leather suites in one of the three reception rooms are red, while in other rooms curtains are red, elsewhere the odd window blind is red.

And, when the wood-burning stove in the 20’ by 11’ sitting room is fired up, it glows red.

Selling agent Adrian Hegarty of Hegarty Properties Midleton guides it at €450,000, and it’s in one of Carrigtwohill’s most upmarket settings.

No 11 has a large front garden, south-facing back garden with deck, all very well kept, and inside is immaculate, fresh and modern.

Two of its four, first-floor bedrooms are en suite, and the master bedroom also has a walk-in wardrobe/dressing room.

At ground level are two front reception rooms, each with bay windows and fireplaces (one’s gas, the other’s a multi-fuel stove) and behind is a kitchen/breakfast room with dining area off via an arch. 

This level also has a guest WC, cloakroom and a utility.

No 11’s in walk-in condition, close to all amenities and for those who might want even more space in time, the attics at these Ashale homes easily convert to further living/sleeping accommodation.

VERDICT: A good ’un.
