    About this property

    • This spacious three-bedroom detached futuristic design has an abundance light and space. It is undeniably private and peaceful within its walls and yet close to all imaginable amenities.

      This unique home was built in 2012 and is decorated to the highest standards.

      Upon arriving at the property you are greeted by a private automated gate that allows access into the parking area. Entering and walking along the sheltered path to the front door you will see the large windows that illuminate the interior and yet the space inside is truly private.

      Entering the central double height roof light entrance hall you will look up and marvel at the abundance of natural light that illuminates the house, by design. There is a spacious kitchen/ dining/ family room to the left, that has a bespoke kitchen with a great selection of appliances and direct access to the south facing designer garden to the rear.

      Just across the hall is the guest WC and cloakroom. Beyond is the master bedroom with its large windows, lovely proportions, and light. This room is serviced by an en-suite with a designer finish and walk-in wardrobe.

      Going to first floor level up the minimalistic, yet beautiful staircase you arrive at the main living room for the house. This magnificent space is very generous and has superb views overlooking the Sunday's Well area across the river in the distance. This room is ideal for relaxing and entertaining. The large sliding glazed doors really opens the house to the huge private balcony from which to watch the world go by.

      Also, on this floor are two other double bedrooms and a master bathroom, again finished to the highest standard.

      To the rear is the landscaped designer garden, which is not overlooked and provides total seclusion, relaxing green space, ideal for those who love gardening, barbequing and entertaining! There is an exceptional selection of ferns, Japanese acers, miniature bamboo and more. The patio has been paved with both polished concrete and granite, giving a civilised finish that is low maintenance.

      The local area is one of the most sought-after residential neighbourhood in Cork city. It is only a short walk to any amenities one may need, including the UCC sport arena and gymnasium, primary and secondary schools, UCC, CUH, shops, restaurants, bus and train service and the best that Cork city has to offer!
