Al­though Marl­field is only a cou­ple of decades old, its high stan­dard of fin­ish and in par­tic­u­lar its fur­nish­ings al­most gives this dormer home the feel of a pe­riod prop­erty.

Set at Knock­aboy, Car­rig­navar about a 15 minute spin north of Cork city, this is an aes­thet­i­cally-pleas­ing dormer with a sym­pa­thetic mix of brick fa­cades, some painted ren­der, and red tile roofs blend­ing with the brick for a wholly mel­low ap­pear­ance.

Red brick also fea­tures by the en­trance pil­lars, along the low ap­proach gar­den walls, and even on the de­tached, tall­hat­ted red-tile roofed garage, which is plumbed and has a WC.

Set out on its el­e­vated slop­ing ru­ral site with sweep­ing val­ley views, mel­low Marl­field is guided at €475,000 by sell- ing agent Conor Lynch of James G Coughlan As­so­ciates, who say it’s a lovely home just short of 2,200 sq ft, and with the op­tion of a fifth ground floor bed­room or study.

Lend­ing a sense of grace to the build is the pro­por­tion of the com­bined 28’ by 18’ draw­ing and din­ing room, plus there’s a fam­ily room, mod­ern kitchen, util­ity, and ground floor WC. Over­head, un­der slop­ing ceil­ings, the mas­ter bed­room is en suite, and there’s a main bath­room plus se­condary Wc/shower room for the oth­ers to share.

Main­te­nance lev­els have been high, in­ter­nally and ex­ter­nally in the lawned and shrubbed gar­dens, with cob­ble paths around the house and pa­tios.

VER­DICT: Fresh look­ing and ready for a trad­ing up fam­ily to savour
