Spotless and spacious home in Bishopstown, Cork, on market for €495,000

There’s a whole lot of space — out the back, to the side, and up top too — at the trading-up family home, 17 Bishopscourt Green, in Cork’s western suburbs.

Bedrooms: 4+attic



A summer market arrival with Johnny O’Flynn of Sherry FitzGerald, the four-bed semi-d had its first open viewing Wednesday, and has one again this coming Tuesday, at 5pm as well as lunchtime next Saturday: it will take a bit of time to savour.

The agents calculate the floor area at just shy of 2,000 sq ft and that includes the single storey side wing, described as a breakfast room, and a rear sun room looking over the sunny, south-west aspected back garden. 

It doesn’t, however, include the well-done attic conversion, where there’s a 17’ by 12’ dormer room, with Veluxes to the front and back and there’s an en suite/adjoining bathroom, and eaves storage to boot.

At mid-ships level, one of its four bedrooms also is en suite, and three are doubles in size, one’s a single, and the main family bathroom is four-piece. 

Solar panels on the west facing back roof slope help to provide hot water for the three bathrooms, kitchen plus guest loo.

At ground floor level, No 17 really scores well, with a double main reception room left of the hall, it is 26’ front to back and 14’ wide, and leads to a compact sunroom at the rear. 

That 12’ by 9’ sun room overlooks the pristine rear garden with its immaculate lawns and planting, plus good-sized, above-standard garden shed.

Also in No 17 is a kitchen with cream units, utility, a guest WC, and 16’ deep and 9’ wide breakfast room.

Overall condition is spotless, says Mr O’Flynn, and the house and garden-proud owners have been in situ since the mid 2000s. He expects keen bidding.

VERDICT: Nothing left to do, bar move in and make any personal changes to this spacious Bishopstown home.
