There’s scope for lots of living and working options at the family home called Cruachu, or No 20, at Cork harbour’s popular Avondale scheme of varied detached homes.
Size: 174 sq m (1,876sq ft)
The Passage West development has a mix of dormer-style homes, and No 20’s of a familiar-looking Bride View Developments design, now extended into its side garage with a glazed link, on an extra large site, of one-third of an acre, says Ann O’Mahony of Sherry FitzGerald.
She guides the four-five-bed at €330,000, but it’s already nudged over that in bids and is in very good order.
The side extension houses an en-suite bedroom 5, or a 20’ deep by 10’ wide 3 play room, or it could be used for home-office/consultancy/therapy room use, with a commute for owner occupiers of no longer than the linking hall.
Other rooms include a living room with wood-burning stove, a family room next to kitchen/diner, a sun room/ conservatory, utility, guest WC and ground floor bedroom.
Upstairs are three further bedrooms, one of which is en suite, and a family bathroom.
The exterior is in dash, there’s a detached lofted workroom, plus off-street parking in front on a swathe of tarmac drive, the house faces a green with distant harbour views beyond and behind is a very large garden.
VERDICT: Good adaptable space, inside and out in well-regarded harbour setting.
