An ‘exceptionally-well finished’ property comes to the market just outside of Clonakilty, says Tommy Barker.
Clonakilty, Cork €450,000
Sq m 275 (2,950 sq ft)
GUIDED at €450,000 is this above average four/five bedroomed dormer and detached home just west of West Cork’s Clonakilty, at a spot called The Miles — so, no coincidence that it’s a mile or so from the town.
This Laragh property is billed as ‘exceptional’ by its selling agent Ray O’Neill of the Sherry FitzGerald network in the town, noting that it’s on an acre, with specimen trees, beech hedging and has a detached, lofted garage, ideal as a workspace or home office.
Its interior is above standard, with quality joinery especially in the home office/bed 5, and its heating system includes an air to water heat exchanger.
Accommodation here includes three overhead bedrooms, all of them en suite, while downstairs are two more beds, a bathroom and a separate guest WC, kitchen/dining room with utility off.The lounge is a large, double-aspect room with bay window to the front, with open fireplace, coved ceiling and recessed spotlighting.
According to Ray O’Neill “it’s rare for a house of this quality to come onto the market in Clonakilty.” It’s near both to the town and major employment centres, including a decentralised fisheries department nearby at Clogheen, and it’s just a few miles from the sea and beaches, Inchydoney, Dunmore and Red Strand.
VERDICT: One of the better finished homes of its era.
