Four double bedrooms in Deerpark

FOUR double bedrooms, three reception rooms and a good overall level of decor come with the detached family home 58 Deerpark.

The Deerpark development, built just off Friars’ Walk in Cork city, evolved over the late 1980s and into the early and mid-1990s, built by developers O’Brien and O’Flynn who got a bit of a coup in terms of location. If you’d bought here day one, you’d need a very good reason to leave a location so close – walking distance – to all of the city’s amenities.

As it comes up for sale carrying a €445,000 asking price via Sherry FitzGerald, Number 58 may well be bought by someone living locally looking to trade up.

Rooms beyond the sheltering porch include a front lounge with two windows and fireplace; a rear family room with patio door; a den in what would have been an attached garage; a good kitchen/dining room – with a good range of mellow solid wood presses and terracotta tiled floor – and while there’s no separate utility, there’s a guest WC.

Number 58 has 1,340 sq ft of space, and for those who like the Deerpark location but are on a smaller budget, Ann O’Mahony of Sherry FitzGerald has a three-bed mid-terraced at 14 Deerpark Court for €280,000.

It has 950 sq ft of space, lounge, family room, kitchen/dining room, guest WC, and three bedrooms.
