Sherry FitzGerald O'Donovan are delighted to present 'Birches' a simply stunning detached home on approx. 0.5 acres, with impressive eco-credentials, in turn-key condition and surrounded by picturesque country views.
Completed in 2007 by Scandinavian Homes it is one of the first 'Passive' houses to be built in Ireland. 'Passive house' is a rigorous standard for energy efficiency which reduces the building's ecological footprint, resulting in ultra-low energy buildings, delivering low heating bills but ensuring high comfort levels, indoor air quality and durability.
Triple-glazed argon-filled windows, solar panels, ventilation & heat recovery system, and high levels of insulation for floor, walls and ceiling deliver what the Passive House Association of Ireland say: “There is no other building standard available globally currently which delivers this level of comfort”.
This home measures approx. 160sq m (1,722 sq ft) and has been immaculately maintained by its current owners. The decor and finish is understated and to the highest quality. The rooms are well proportioned and provide a wonderful flow between living and bedroom accommodation.
The grounds are lush and provide an array of shrubbery and planting including beech, hornbeam, and wild native hedging, as well as a variety of trees, shrubs and herbaceous planting. The gardens are further completed by a gravel driveway, limestone patios, raised vegetable beds, and lawn.
Located with a 2 minute drive to Midleton town centre, 25 minutes to Cork city, Birches enjoys a countryside setting yet with all modern conveniences on its doorstep.
This wonderful offering to the East Cork property market provides a rare opportunity to combine excellent accommodation with a high energy efficient detached home in picturesque surroundings.
