Property SummaryJust as you approach Cobh town itself you will see “Cara”. Cara is a 4 bedroom detached bungalow complete with driveway, front garden, side garden, rather large area to the rear and landscaped rockery and walkways. The garden is very manageable and not too big. You even have a view of Monkstown from the front garden. The one thing that will strike you when you walk in is the brightness and space.
The house was built in the early 70’s and is a solid block built house so it could very easily be altered and extended. The house offers immense potential, one could extend out the back, break rooms into each other put patio doors here and there but in saying that one could leave it the way it is as it works and if it works why change it.
Accommodation – front porch, front door with stain glass leading into the L-shaped entrance hall from there you have the rather large sitting room with an open fireplace and a large window capturing the sea view, again a rather large solid fitted kitchen/dining room with the back door leading to the spacious back porch. There are 4 bedrooms ( 3 double and 1 single)and 2 bathrooms
(one with shower WC & WHB and the other with WC) the second one is used as a utility room. The total square footage of the house is 1300sq.ft approx
Services would include gas central heating (Calor gas), Septic tank, mains water, single glazed windows.
The train station is literally a 5 minute walk, you are on the road out of Cobh , you are minutes from the Cross River Ferry and you are a 10 minute walk to the town centre of Cobh near all the shops etc.
My verdict of the house is that it is a nice house, great feel, nice location, good condition, superb potential, would suit the retiree or indeed the family as plenty of scope. One would have immense privacy and or though you are not in the country you kind of feel it.
