“Tremendous and with most pleasant gardens,” is the boast of estate agent Timothy Sullivan when addressing the charms of the older-era, three-bed semi-d at 4 Beaumont Lawn, in Cork’s southern suburbs.
And, he’s bang on the money in singling out this aspect as putting No 4 ahead of the posse for home hunters wanting outdoor space, and garden maturity, in a settled suburb close to conurbations like Douglas and Blackrock.
Guided at €365,000, No 4 is going to need updating, and has a poor enough F BER, whilst many viewers taking on upgrades might also want to extend. If so, there’s plenty of garden to colonise, and an attached garage for starters to knit into a new, larger package.
Indicative of demand for this area, nearby in Beaumont the detached bungalow No 37 Dundanion Road, on a large corner site and which was House of the Week here last Saturday guiding €435,000, is already gone to €500,000 in bids, with builder interest to the fore as well as aspiring owner occupiers who’d extend/rebuild.
VERDICT: There have been some quite special extensions put on other semis in the greater Beaumont vicinity, and a stroll around its grids and criss-cross of estates will give lots of ideas as to what might be done with garden-blessed No 4
