Extended only last year, a decade or so after the main house was built, is this now very-large family home at Killeenleigh, 25 minutes drive from Cork city at Aghabullogue.

Just shy of 3,000 sq ft, there’s a large array of ground floor rooms in particular in this home, which carries a price guide of 320,000 with estate agent Robert O’Keeffe of Irish and European.

He says the spread of rooms is superb, with kitchen/dining room which continues the porcelain tiled floor theme from the hall, main living room with wood floor, there’s also a conservatory, large games room/lounge, library/den, laundry room and utility, and a ground floor bedroom with en suite bathroom.

Overhead, the master bedroom with bay window also is en suite with pumped shower, there’s a very good main bathroom and two other upstairs bedrooms also have bay windows, there’s good attic/eaves storage, and access also to a main attic in several room sections with Veluxes.

The stone-fronted house has solar panels, a wood-pellet stove and central vacuum system contained within a double garage, and there’s waste biocycle.

VERDICT: It’s taken a huge leap forward from its first 2002 incarnation.
