BARRY AUCTIONEERS & VALUERS are delighted to present PADUA to the market. This four bedroom semi detached family home is situated in the mature and much sought after area of Browningstown Park, Douglas, Cork, adjacent to Hettyfield. It is located within minutes of Douglas Village which boasts a variety of amenities including excellent restaurants, specialist shops, pubs and two Shopping Centres. Some of Cork's premier Primary and Secondary schools (Eglantine N.S., St Anthony's Boys N.S. and Regina Mundi Girls Secondary School) are in the vicinity. In close proximity is a wide selection of recreational and leisure facilities such as Cork Constitution Rugby Club and Douglas Tennis and Golf Clubs. PADUA is an instantly appealing family home offering wonderfully bright, generously proportioned accommodation in exceptional decorative order, inviting the purchaser to literally walk in and call it home. It has been creatively designed and decorated to provide the ultimate in modern family living. The attention to detail and calibre of finish is second to none. Constructed in the 1930s, this picturesque property extending to 1,130 sq ft is very well presented and is in excellent condition throughout. The manicured gardens are positioned behind mature hedging, uniquely placed to catch sunlight all day from early morning breakfast to al fresco dining in the evening. The entrance to PADUA is through a pathway of mature planting and shrubbery of agapanthus, hebes and roses culminating in standard bay boxes and a beautifully scented old Bourbon rose. The black and white chequered Victorian doorstep leads into the entrance hall. This boasts the original oak flooring and is furnished with an antique hall table, and leads one into the Sitting room. This bright and spacious room is decorated in contemporary shades of Farrow & Ball off-white and taupe with shots of colour in the form of art, soft furnishings, books and select antique furniture. The room is cool in summer and cosy in winter. The Kitchen, with its original Victorian tiled flooring, is in neo-country style with whimsical touches and playful colour combinations, with open shelving reminiscent of a DeVol kitchen, painted in shades of Farrow & Ball sage green. The urban boho influences are evident in the choice of vintage crockery, wooden utensils, pictures and randomly selected accessories to give a playful, imaginatively conceived yet comfortable look. Bedrooms are decorated in warm contemporary styles with dramatic textiles, soft furnishings and selected antique pieces and art, with the occasional pop of colour. The mix of modern and antique promotes a restful ambience conducive to relaxation. There is a place in every room for an indoor plant, and the bathrooms in PADUA are no exception. A careful selection of the best bathroom plants help to create a jungle ambience, and a lush and relaxing oasis with a calming zen feel. The combination of these is unexpected yet harmonious. There is a Garage of block construction which is wired and plumbed. This gives the purchaser the possibility of a conversion to another use, eg home office or gym, or perhaps a new construction (subject to p.p.). This large, wedge shaped site, professionally landscaped with lawn, mature hedging, trees, shrubbery and strategically placed container planting, has been maintained to a high standard, giving an aesthetically pleasing impression of this property. There is also off-street parking. PADUA must be seen to be appreciated.
