Full Description

Occupying a commanding position on the corner of Donovans Road and College Road, Oakhurst is a beautiful four bedroomed family home in excellent condition throughout.

With a wealth of features expected from a property constructed in 1920 the current owners have made sure that, where possible, these features have been restored or replaced without interfering with the original character. As a result, double glazed sash windows complete with weights and pulleys, stained glass (internal & external), wide floorboards, picture and dado rails all appear in different spaces. The external façade is also true to form with the use of red brick and dash.

A family home, Oakhurst has the benefit of being located within a short stroll to a host of amenities to include schools (Presentation Brothers secondary, St Josephs primary school, St Catherines primary school & Mount. Mercy secondary) as well as being on the doorstep of the Bons, UCC and CUH. The property has a regular bus service in the number 205 and all shopping at the city centre as well as Wilton is easily accessed.

The accommodation is host to a glazed entrance porch, reception hall, lounge, dining room, kitchen with snug off and utility room all at ground floor level. The return gives a bathroom as well as second w.c. The first floor offers two fine bedrooms which is mirrored at second floor level.

Gas central heating gives a D1 energy rating and the 166 SqM (1,786 SqFt) of accommodation space over three levels is well proportioned and distributed. One of the true beauties at Oakhurst lies within its private, enclosed mature gardens. The south and west aspect enjoyed by the corner site ensures all parts of the garden are in constant use. The clever planting of mature shrubs and trees means the gardens are tucked away from the outside world and offer a haven of peace and tranquillity seldom found in a property which boasts this type of convenient location close to the city. While laid to lawn in the main, the gardens enjoy a selection of shrubs. There is independent pedestrian access as well as double gates to a detached garage and driveway.

Viewing is by appointment only and highly recommended.
