Em­met Square, Clon­akilty, €595,000

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

THERE’S only a hand­ful of modern homes at Clon­akilty’s el­e­gant Em­met Square, an award-win­ning Ge­or­gian time­piece, one which has been gen­tly up­dated by Cork County Coun­cil’s ar­chi­tects’ de­part­ment. And, the square by the church is also home to the Em­met Ho­tel and the new Michael Collins mu­seum.

Now, the chance to buy a very com­fort­able five-bed, all en suite home just off the highly-re­garded Em­met Square has come to mar­ket with Ray O’neill of Sherry Fitzger­ald. He seeks of­fers of €595,000 for the hos­pitable Wytch­wood, a well-fin­ished c 20-year-old build, on a cor­ner site by the up-mar­ket Glebe Gar­dens, with pri­vate gar­den.

Wytch­wood has three re­cep­tion rooms, a bright, cor­ner­set sun room, large kitchen with wood-stained units and qual­ity ap­pli­ances, and util­ity. Plus, there’s plus a ground floor en suite bed­room, and over­head all five other beds are en suite, so it could well be bought and op­er­ated as a B&B.

To suit such a use, there’s also po­ten­tial to hive off one end which cur­rently has three bed­rooms as a self-con­tained apart­ment area, so op­tions for new own­ers could in­clude Airbnb, or other guest use.

Given its niche set­ting, it’s an ideal town cen­tre liv­ing base, says Mr O’neill, and has been fin­ished to a top stan­dard through­out, with high ceil­ings, qual­ity en suites, has sev­eral stoves, and the grounds in­clude a south-west fac­ing pa­tio gar­den with shrubs by the con­ser­va­tory. VER­DICT: Be-wytched
