SIX bedrooms, 0.6 of an acre of shrubbed gardens, and a guide price of €600,000 – not a bad sequence on offer at the big 2,500 sq ft family bungalow Clonard, on the edge of Kinsale town.
Within a walk of the coastal tourism town’s amenities, this is a big dormer home on an appropriately, not-pinched, decent sized site, obviously minded by a cautious gardener – even the glasshouse has a protective wooden screen or trellis on its side wall, handy for supporting climbing beans or peas.
Set at Liscahane Mor, about three-quarters of an acre out by the GAA pitch, the 1980s dormer is new to market with agents Woodwards in Cork city, selling for its down-sizing neighbours who’ve been here about 12 years.
It needs no work, bar maybe personal decorative changes, suggests Tom Woodward, and has a good mix of ground floor rooms, described by the auctioneers as including three bedrooms at this lower level. Two of the first floor bedrooms are en suite.
Other rooms include a formal 17’ by 15’ drawing room, leading to a similarly decent-sized 22’ by 11’ gable end sunroom, there’s a dining room, and kitchen with chestnut units. Clonard has teak-framed double glazing, and the detached garage houses acts as a utility.
