With stone frontage and old-style window quoins, Apple Tree Cottage in East Cork really stands out from the crowd, writes Trish Dromey.
Size 99 sq m (1,069 sq ft)
WITH its stone frontage, old style window quoins and large dormer windows, Apple Tree Cottage in Whitegate is much prettier than many modern three bed houses.
Located within a few minutes’ walk from the waterfront in the East Cork seaside village, it’s an end house in a terrace of three which is also known as 3 Hawkins Garden.
On the market with a guide of €215,000, the property is being sold by Cronin Wall Properties who say it’s unusual, charming and has been kept in pristine condition by the owners who have lived there for over eight years.
Auctioneer Shay Cronin says it has 1,069 sq ft of living space and is likely to appeal to first-time buyers and possibly some buyers trading down.
Accommodation includes an oak floored lounge at the front with a timber fireplace and double doors leading through to a kitchen/dining room at the rear with white units, appliances and tiled flooring.
Upstairs there’s a bathroom and three timber floored bedrooms. The master bedroom at the front is a spacious room with fitted wardrobes and an en suite.
The area in front of Apple Tree Cottage is paved for parking and at the side has some shrubs.
The back is paved for ease of maintenance and has a shed and some flowerbeds.
The property is a few minutes walk from the village, with pubs, restaurants and a shop, water-based activities and a five kilometre coastal walkway going to Rostellan.
VERDICT: A very pretty property
