Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

CORK’s bur­geon­ing Har­bour Fes­ti­val rolls around again early in June, for nine days of wa­ter­borne ac­tiv­ity, fun and ad­ven­tures, with the Ocean to City race its cen­tre­piece event, June 10 as it heads out from Crosshaven to the city quays.

But, for who­ever buys West­brook, in Crosshaven right by the en­trance to the Bright­wa­ter de­vel­op­ment, the joys of liv­ing by the sea and abil­ity to en­joy it at the drop of a sou’wester comes as a year-round bonus. Up for sale with a €430,000 price tag is this as-new, high spec 1,850 sq ft four-bed home, well-built in 2010 with con­sid­er­able at­ten­tion to de­tail, in­side and out.

It’s got a part-stone fa­cade and stone front bound­ary wall, and other ex­ter­nal walls are dashed, while the win­dows are wood-grain pvc, look­ing at home with the stone colour on the front.

Es­tate agent Michael Pig­ott says this de­tached Crosshaven vil­lage home is in su­perb dec­o­ra­tive or­der through­out: it has wal­nut floor­ing pretty much through­out, as well as a tiled kitchen and hall, with open­tread hard­wood stair­case.

There’s a good-qual­ity high­gloss kitchen, and above-stan­dard fully-tiled bath­rooms (two of the bed­rooms are en-suite, and the main fam­ily bath­room has a Jacuzzi bath.)

The land­ing is car­peted and has a Stira pull-down stairs ac­cess to a floored at­tic

Other rooms in­clude main large liv­ing room with a solid fuel stove, TV/fam­ily rooms, util­ity and guest WC. There’s gas heat­ing, so­lar pan­els for hot wa­ter, dou­ble glaz­ing, and a B2 BER, so it should be cosy in all weath­ers, and on re­turn from sea, beach and har­bour trips.

It’s set off the road to Church Bay, a minute or two’s walk to Crosshaven’s ameni­ties, mari­nas, ten­nis courts, and pitch and putt. There are beaches within a walk, and Car­ri­ga­line is less than ten min­utes away by car.

West­brook has off-street park­ing for sev­eral cars in front and side, be­hind a slid­ing gate, and be­hind is a com­pact gar­den, with nar­row strip of lawn and a pa­tio for BBQs. VER­DICT: Har­bour at your fin­ger­tips. For full de­tails of all 60 events dur­ing next month’s Har­bour Fes­ti­val, in the city and across 15 towns and vil­lages, see www.corkhar­bour­fes­ti­val.com.
