Tommy Barker reveals this house is the first to go on sale in this development since 2009.
Blarney, Cork €360,000
Size: 139 sq m
EVEN though four detached Blarney area houses were built here in the Beeches by 2007, No 3 is only now coming to market — and two others in the niche scheme will follow after No 3’s changed hands.
Guided at €360,000 by Claire Dennehy of Savills, No 3 is a four-bed detached, with 1,500 sq ft and good sized rooms, fully finished inside — right down to a stainless steel range cooker.
The first viewings were a week or so ago and that open session had eight couples casting an eye over No 3, with several subsequent individual visits too, notes MsDennehy, who says there’s good value in well-built homes with good-size rooms, developed by Cumnor Construction.
One was sold in 2009 (in pre-Price Register days), and the rest have been rented in the interim. No 3’s the first to come vacant, and is in good order, it’s understood.
It has a 17’ by 14’ front living room with bay window and fireplace, rear fitted kitchen next to a sun room and utility, there’s a guest WC and overhead are four bedrooms, one of which is en suite, plus a main bathroom with separate bath and shower.
Internal joinery is in oak, and heating is via gas.
Location is north of Blarney, off the Waterloo Road at Knocknacorbally, easily reached off the Cork-Mallow road.
VERDICT: Better value than you’d find closer to the city, but it is open to bids. Two more sales here may follow in time.
