THE elevated setting of 6, Dunvale Rise in Cork’s Frankfield suburb gives it a surveying view westwards up the Lee Valley – and this house’s sale prospects also look good.
Hitting the market in the past week, it has already started clocking up the viewings.
It’s at the top of the Dunvale Estate, just up from the Kinsale road roundabout (where a new Jam restaurant, part of a select Kerry chain, is jamming them in at Hanley’s Garden Centre) and Douglas is a mile away over the Frankfield hill. Falvey builders did these four-bed detached dormers at the top, ‘best seats in the house’ part of Dunvale, with lots of sloping green space right in front.
Selling agent Jeremy Murphy gives No 6 a €489,000 asking price, and notes it is a walk-in job, a great family home, in a very popular location close to a new medical centre, a new national school, an Aldi, a quality new SuperValu, and a short hop from the south ring road too.
The house is in mint order (but currently painted in some strong, individual colours), with a mix of maple, oak and beech floors and its main reception rooms are to the front, with a 22’ by 11’ kitchen/dining room bringing up the rear.
One of its four bedrooms is at ground level, behind, with a good en suite with double shower, while overhead are three more bedrooms and the landing has a bank of mirrored sliding doors concealing great storage.
