Set just a few hun­dred yards off the N25 and a five minute drive east from Mi­dle­ton in East Cork is this mod­ern, four-bed fam­ily home, on a half acre site, and freshly up for sale with a €435,000 ask­ing price.

There’s close to a dozen one-off homes built now at this Car­rigshane ad­dress near Castlered­mond, and the joint sell­ing agents of this two-storey, dis­tinctly laid-out home, Mccarthy & Mcgrath, act­ing with Hegarty Prop­er­ties, say the area is nice and quiet, and pleas­antly res­i­den­tial while still amid farm­land.

Set into a slop­ing site, there’s a par­tial base­ment level to the back of this es­sen­tially two-storey prop­erty, which is used for stor­age, and it has rooms on re­turn lev­els too: the agents say it’s com­fort­able, ver­sa­tile and spa­cious with gen­er­ous pro­por­tions.

Once past a stone-faced front porch, in­ter­nally, it has a deep cen­tral hall, with main, dou­ble as­pect sit­ting room to the left, with lots of built-in shelv­ing ei­ther side of a tall white marble open fire­place. Across the hall is a deep kitchen/din­ing room, again dou­ble as­pect with util­ity to the back plus French doors to a pa­tio/ bar­be­cue area. Up on a re­turn/half level there’s a TV room, with black fire­place and has ac­cess via French doors to the el­e­vated back gar­den, while also on this level is a bed­room with walk-in robe and plumb­ing in place for a shower room en suite.

The first floor proper has two bed­rooms, one en suite with walk-in wardrobe, the main fam­ily bath­room is here also, and over­head on an­other re­turn is bed­room four.

Much of the join­ery is in teak; there’s solid hard­wood doors, oil cen­tral heat­ing,and ex­ter­nally there’s park­ing in front on a pressed con­crete drive, and to the back, a block-built shed. VER­DICT: Fresh-faced in­side and spa­cious, in­side and out.
