THERE’S only about 40 large, detached homes in Cork’s Temple Vale in Beaumont, and they only very, rarely come up for sale.
The gable-fronted two-storey houses range around two sides of a green, with a dog-leg then hosting a few more Temple Vale homes on the way into the more modern scheme called Berkeley; the latter, again, is a collection of detached homes only, with several dozen more houses back here, around a second green.
Tempel Vale’s location is off Beaumont Drive and Crescent by Dundanion Road, popular with families, near schools, services, and Blackrock village.
For the curious and home-hunters looking in this popular area, No 3 Temple Vale is for sale, hitting over 1,900 sq ft, with four bedrooms, and a good, private back garden.
It’s right by the entrance to the estate, and faces south to the front: estate agent Declan Madden of Redfords describes the setting as “a quiet, and sought-after residential estate close to Blackrock, ideally suited to family living”.
It was on the market last year, and is now back and guided at €549,000, and has already hit €550,000 in early 2016 offers, but needs quite a bit of modernisation.
It has two reception rooms, one a decent 18’ by 13,’ plus a play room, along with ground floor kitchen, guest WC and attached garage. Upstairs are four bedrooms, none of them en suite, plus family bathroom.
VERDICT: Large garden, corner site in popular suburban setting.
Size: Sqm 180 (1,938 sq ft)
