DescriptionCuan is a large detached family home, built on an elevated site just 3km from the riverside village of Kilmacsimon Quay, and just 5km from Ballinadee village. Ideally suited to those looking for a spacious, well built and designed family home, within easy driving distance of Innishannon, Bandon and West Cork, with Cork city and airport only 30 minutes away and Kinsale (15 minutes), as well as the beaches at Garrettstown, Garrylucas, Harbour View and Coolmain, with the added bonus of a large garage / workshop which could be used to run a business from.
The property was built in 2003 and is of Cygnum timber frame construction ensuring top quality insulation properties. It was cleverly designed to sit into the hillside with a split level layout to take advantage of the rolling countryside vista and views of the Bandon River off to the east. The most attractive feature of the property is the large open plan livingroom cum diningroom cum kitchen, with high-pitched cathedral ceiling and large windows up into the apex, with windows all around, flooding the living space with natural light all day long. This living area has French doors opening to a large decked balcony, a stunning spot to relax and enjoy the gorgeous vista or for some alfresco dining.
Stairs leads down to the bedrooms at the lower level - all a fine size and the master with bathroom ensuite. The family bathroom is also at this level.
A spacious and very useful utility room separates the dwelling area from the large garage/workshop which is attached to the property and measures approx 19' 10'' x 40' (30' high) with concrete floor, internal access to utility room, large double doors to front, door to garden at back, fitted with work benches and supplied with power. Wired separate to the house for 110/220 volt power. Potential to convert to additional living space if required with some of the preparatory work already complete (ideal for au pair or teenager space or elderly parent accommodation). The boiler is large enough to allow the installation of additional rads if required.
The house sits on circa 1.1 acres of lawns with a sweeping gravelled drive leading up from the road and plenty of parking.
