There’s a lot on the side, and to the front, of 85 Uam Var Drive in Cork city’s western suburbs.
Set by Murphy’s Farm off the Curraheen Road, this bungalow home is quite private, but usefully is by a public green, with public walks and amenities all to hand, as well as Bishopstown Tennis Club.
Estate agent Jarlath Boyd of Timothy Sullivan Associates guides No 85 (also known as Cladagh,) at €325,000, and handily it comes with a side garage/series of rooms that includes one room with built-ins, another has a sink, there’s also a shower room, and it’s all been recently re-roofed says Mr Boyd.
He estimates the house floor area to be 1,235 sq ft, and inside past the porch is an L-shaped hall, there are a surprising four bedrooms (one with bay window), a double-sized 26’ by 12’ reception room with fireplace, kitchen with oak units, and compact, fully tiled shower room.
The property manages to fit in front and back gardens with gated side access to the rear, and there’s oil-fired central heating.
VERDICT: Detached single-story homes in and around Bishopstown (for that matter, most of Cork’s older suburbs) are rare like hen’s teeth, Uam Var is the estate standard bearer, and No 85 Uam Var Drive has extra accommodation options on the side.
