Trading Up: Cloyne, Cork €335,000

Anyone for duck? The proximity to gourmet delights around Ballymaloe and East Cork are held out as local attractions in the case of the sale of this Cloyne, Co Cork home — a spot with its own pond, for ducks and wildlife.

A market relaunch with price adjustment, Belmont House at Kilmacahill, Cloyne is now priced at €335,000 by estate agent Regina Kelleher of Lisney’s Cork residential offices: she says with 2.5 acres, a comfortable home, plus a lofted 1,200 sq ft garage with overhead en suite room, it’s got lots of options for families looking for space and an outdoors lifestyle, with wildlife on hand thanks to the natural pond.

Belmont House is four-bedroomed, all en suite, with three beds overhead, one (the master suite) with balcony overlooking the grounds, while the main living/dining room is a decent size, at 25’ by 15,’ with double aspect, it has a wood-burning stove and the room opens to a deck which gives an external linkage to the living areas.

There’s also a kitchen/dining room, a gable end sun room, and utility, plus guest WC and ground floor bedroom.

The garage, attached by a linking wall, offers further scope for storage, working from home, or conversion.

The setting is ten minutes from Midleton and other employment hubs east of the city, with beaches and bays all nearby as distractions.

VERDICT: Great site size gives living and lifestyle options
