BER Rating: C3
It’s 15 years old, but the detached four-bed bungalow at 4 Castlemanor Close, near the centre of Castlemartyr village, (with attractions as varied as a five-star resort hotel, and comedian/actor Pat Shortt’s bustling Main Street bar) is pristine, ready to move into.
So says selling agent Michael McGrath of McCarthy and McGrath in East Cork’s capital Midleton, of the accommodating family home, on a decent bright site, within a short spin of East Cork’s beaches by Garryvoe, and a half hour commute from Cork city.
No 4 is in a cul de sac estate, and extra peace comes from things like a private walled site, gated entrance, alarm and sensor lighting, while the site’s boundaries have all started to mature nicely.
This traditionally-built single storey bungalow has two reception rooms (living, plus dining), each with cast iron fireplaces, and the hall, landing and kitchen all have tiled floors, while wall colours are all have warm hues.
The dining room at No 4 Castlemanor Close, with tiled floor and fireplace, opens variously to the hall to the kitchen and to the patios and gardens, so it’s a real hub. Lots of connecting doors are part-glazed so that the interiors are kept as bright as possible.
Heating is via oil, windows are double glazed, the BER’s a good C3 and the gardens have lots of lawns and play area for families looking to trade to an accommodating detached home with space inside and out.
VERDICT: Good, well-kept example of the type.
