Beau­mont, Cork, €485,000

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

WITH such a choice lo­ca­tion as Dun­dan­ion Road in Cork’s Beau­mont, it’s al­most an open ques­tion as to who’ll buy the ex­tended bun­ga­low at No 16. Its sell­ing agent John Barry of Frank V Murphy & Co says he’s sold three other homes on the road in the past year. One went to a fam­ily, one on a cor­ner site went to a de­vel­oper who’ll knock and build sev­eral new homes, and an­other was bought by a down­sizer... although Mr Barry prefers the term ‘right­sizer’.

The own­ers of No 16 bought in 2003, and up­graded and ex­tended in 2006 over two lev­els as their fam­ily grew. Their works in­cluded newwin­dows, gas cen­tral heat­ing, new bath­rooms/en suite and go­ing up and out, in ex­ten­sion. It has two front re­cep­tion rooms with bay win­dow, kitchen/din­ing room, util­ity, ground floor bed­room, TV room/bed­room, and shower room.

Over­head now has two more bed­rooms, one of which has a triple as­pect and an en suite, plus there’s a sep­a­rate shower room, and a small room-sized car­peted store with Velux. Not only is the in­ter­nal lay­out adapt­able for fam­i­lies, and the stan­dard good, but there’s also a 100’ long at­trac­tive and ma­ture back gar­den, with two ac­cess points off the kitchen/diner to a raised pa­tio, and the gar­den has fruit trees and a veg patch, while in front there’s off­street park­ing.

VER­DICT: Ideal for a fam­ily, as it’s close to schools, sports clubs, shops etc in the Beau­mont/ballintem­ple/ Black­rock area.
