Join the smart set with hot Ovens home

Every square foot of this ideal family home is oozing comfort and style, writes Tommy Barker

Ovens, Cork - €395,000

  • Size: 147 sq m (1,582 sq ft)
  • Bedrooms: 4
  • Bathrooms: 3
  • BER: C3

THERE’S just over 1,500 sq ft of internal living space at the four-bed, detached and three-storied family home 26 Westway, and it looks like someone with an astute eye for interior design has mapped out each and every square foot, and maximised the opportunities too.

There are things like smart window seats, and alcove storage units, and an ash kitchen with Belfast ceramic sinks and black granite tops, roman blinds on windows, and above standard bathrooms, especially the master bed’s en suite.

Set out at Grange Manor, a stone’s throw from the enormous EMC campus by Killumney and Ovens, No 26 Westway has been altered from the original layout, says agent Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald, who says the four-bed detacheds here are rare enough to the market, and who guides No 26 at €395,000.

It has a front lounge with wood-burning stove insert and window seat, central kitchen/diner and a family room with gas fire insert out the back, helping to frame a decked garden seating, utility to the side, and two of its four beds are up at second floor level, where the top floor wash room has a bath with shower.

Easily reached via the Ballincollig bypass, it’s by a green, with off-street parking on a brick-paved drive, and has views past it to open countryside and hills along the Lee valley

For early birds, there’s an open view today at 10AM, and two more on 5pm Tuesday and next Friday at lunchtime. Ms Healy expects it to be a solid seller due, she says to location, and versatility, overall condition and presentation.

VERDICT: Not such a slow burn at Ovens
