Not too many large detached properties have come on the market in East Cork’s Carrigtwohill recently, so this six-bed dormer bungalow at Annesgrove is attracting a bit of attention.
“We held an open viewing and had a lot of interest from families living in estates in the village who wanted to trade up,” notes Michael Pigott of Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan, quoting a guide price of €295,000.
Originally built as a bungalow in 1981 it was upgraded and converted into a dormer in 2000. With over 2,000 sq ft of living space and quarter of an acre of gardens, it’s located approximately one mile from shops in Carrigtwohill.
Accommodation includes a kitchen/dining room with fitted units, a utility room; a timber floored sitting room as well as a family room with a solid fuel stove. Offering a bathroom and a shower room the property has six bedrooms with timber flooring. The master bedroom on the ground floor also has an en suite.
It has oil central heating, single glazed windows downstairs and double glazed upstairs and has a D2 BER rating. In the gardens there’s a decked area, a detached garage, a tarmac parking area and a large lawn. Mr Pigott says it could appeal to a trade-up buyer from Cork city.
It’s within a 10-minute walk of Carrigtwohill train station and is within a short commuting distance from the city.
VERDICT: Enough space to promote harmonious family living.
