Lots of boxes get ticked at the family home called Trelawne, in a top Cork suburban location — it’s on the Model Farm Road.
Not only is the setting first rate, but the back is west-facing, looking over tillage fields just to the west of CIT’s sports campus and playing fields.
There’s been a green belt designation out here for decades, between Bishopstown and Ballincollig, although a new Science Park has been mooted for this hinterland since 2008.
Home and dry, and well-ensconced in this Model Farm Road location near Inchigaggin for several decades, Trelawne is itself a 1,335 sq ft four-bed, brick-faced bungalow, on a 0.25 acre site, mature and landscaped, up a short drive from the Model Farm Road, with secondary pedestrian access too, 25 metres from a bus stop.
It is guided at €400,000 by agent John O’Mahony of O’Mahony Walsh auctioneers in Ballincollig and he has it under early offer under that sum, in the mid €300,000s.
Mr O’Mahony describes the setting as idyllic, and the house as deceptively spacious. Orientation means it gets the best of light and the attic is can be extended into.
A bonus is a 325 sq ft garage, well-built and with conversion/home office use potential. And, it’s all on a bus route.
VERDICT: Model yourself on this one.
