A big ask but po­ten­tial for de­vel­op­ment

Tommy Barker re­veals Dúnbhríde

AS it stands, the de­tached 2,100 sq ft Dúnbhríde out by­knock­anemore,ovens just west of Cork city, makes a grand fam­ily home, with sta­bles even for a pony. But on those mer­its alone it prob­a­bly doesn’t jus­tify a €950,000 ask­ing price. That sort of value comes from its ground, which use­fully is just shy of two acres.

The four-bed home comes to market this month with Tr­ish Stokes of Lis­ney at that €950k level, and she points out that it is set within the bound­ary of Kil­lum­ney/ovens, des­ig­nated as a ‘Key Vil­lage’ in the Lo­cal Area Plan, al­low­ing for a a medium ‘B’ den­sity zon­ing if de­vel­oped.

Plan­ning guides sug­gest den­si­ties of 12-25 houses to the hectare, but it’s likely that the 1.96 acres with this home could see a some­what lower den­sity.

Ar­chi­tect­tomhe­gar­ty­has­done up fea­si­bil­ity stud­ies for the ven­dors, sug­gest­ing how six new­builds could be ac­com­mo­dated here on the land.

Ms Stokes says that Cle­burne, a site to the rear of Dúnbhríde, re­cently se­cured plan­ning for seven de­tached prop­er­ties and that in­di­vid­ual sites there have sold rang­ing from €250,000.

Right now, the house up for sale is set back off the road, in a ma­ture site with a small run of sta­bles and sand arena to the rear.

Cur­rent ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a 17’ by 13’ fam­ily room, small 13’ by 12’ sit­ting room, play­room, kitchen/diner, of­fice, util­ity and guest WC.

Over­head one of the four bed­rooms has an en suite bath­room.

Lo­ca­tion is a short dis­tance off the main Cork-mac­room/kerry road just west of Ballincol­lig.

VER­DICT: Horses, and houses, for cour­ses.
