There’s a lovely, west-facing, mature and private back garden with this older-style bungalow home in Cork’s Beaumont suburb — and for those who savour the outdoors, it has a pleasant surprise up its sleeve.
Size: 85sq m (915 sq ft)
In the middle of its high, back boundary screening hedge is a stout wooden door: open it, pass through, and you’re directly into a large public amenity park, ideal for kids, school-goers, walkers, joggers, dog owners, and ball players.
That Beaumont park covers acres, including a former quarry and a just re-graded soccer pitch for local club Avonmore, and has access points too to Silverdale estate, and to Temple Hill by Cork Con and a pitch and putt club, as well as a wooded section by Beaumont Drive and the local shop.
No 21 Beaumont Lawn is an attractive option not only for the active, but for traders down too, and it’s currently a 910 sq ft three-bed semi-detached, single-storey home.
It’s for sale with auctioneer Tim Sullivan, who guides at €345,000, and while its gardens are big enough for quite a sizeable extension for families on the move, it might just get tweaks from an older, trading-down sector.
VERDICT: Even though it’s been well kept, it needs updating now, and its BER is a quite lowly F, so viewers will have to factor in extra spending into the budget, but it has location, aspect, and scope as incentives.
