DescriptionSubstantial Detached House with a huge workshop at the rear situated on a fine elevated half an acre site just outside the city, on the main Bandon - Cork Road, with easy access to West Cork, Bishopstown and the South Ring Road network. The property is presented in immaculate order throughout and offers tremendous scope in terms of living accommodation and a 1,500 sq. ft. workshop/garage may just be the ticket for a self employed business person such as a mechanic or a builder.
The original cottage was set on a half an acre site but it is now unrecognisable as the present owners have transformed the old dwelling house into a modern 4 bedroom home with the addition of a two storey extension to the rear. The site has been carefully landscaped to provide a private garden to the front and a super timber deck area to the side. A huge driveway has been tarmaced and extends up around the side of the house and this could easily accomodate numerous cars, machinery, trucks or buses. Up to the back of the site there is a most spacious garage complete with a concrete floor and a mechanics pit.
