Swallow’s Rest offers good family value

IT has a lyrical run of names, Swallow’s Rest at French Furze, Carrigaline, and the private, Co Cork dormer also offers good value for families trading up.

Standing on a site of half an acre, it has the best of both worlds as there are neighbours on both sides, but the house is very sheltered and private.

The detached, four-bed is for sale through Jeremy Murphy of Jeremy Murphy and Associates who says the house even has distant views of Cork Harbour.

It’s on offer at €375,000 and comes with a living room of 20’ by 13’, a kitchen/diner of 32’ by 12’ with new cherrywood units and a lounge area with built-in shelving and TV unit.

The ground floor has a guest bathroom, utility and fourth bedroom, while overhead there’s a master suite, family bathroom and two generous double bedrooms.

A good, spacious offering for families looking for a big house, close to the city and the sea.
