Full Description

12 The Grove arrives to the market as a most impressive four bedroom detached residence extending to approximately 215 Sq M (2,314 Sq Ft) ideally located off the sought after Orchard Road on Corks West side. Perfectly situated along a quiet cul de sac in a development of only 15 properties, number 12 is within walking distance of Cork University Hospital and University College Cork. The city centre is a short 10 minute drive away with public transport connections nearby.

Constructed in 1993, the property has been fastidiously maintained and regularly upgraded by its current owner. Extensive insulation works provide an impressive B3 energy rating and the property boasts unique features and upgrades such as a Rangemaster Stove and US compatible sockets (to allow for US appliances) in the kitchen. Interestingly, there is a hand built dresser in the dining room and bookshelf in the sitting room and that are early creations of the now world renowned furniture designer Joseph Walsh. A log cabin has been constructed in the garden which is wired for electricity and plumbed for water and waste thereby providing a range of possible uses.

The property benefits from a south facing rear garden that has been attractively paved and planted to provide a peaceful and private sun trap - ideal for entertaining. A cobble lock, double driveway to front allows parking for two cars.

Properties in this development rarely come to market and number 12 will appeal to buyers looking for a fantastic family home in a superb location. Viewing is highly advised.
