HOUSE OF THE WEEK Four-bed outside Bandon for €400,000
HANDS up who sometimes feels sorry for the presenters of RTE’s Home of the Year? Yes, they do get to see some of the country’s most awesome houses, but it can’t be easy coming up with authentic and original phrases to do them justice week after week.
After a while their gushy ‘wows’ fall a little flat, but we do feel their pain as the often bandied about phrases such as ‘turn-key condition’ and ‘contemporary but functional’ are screaming to be used for our House of the Week. In fact it’s like they were coined especially for this four-bed, four bathroom property at Gaggin, outside Bandon.
Covering around 2,500 sq foot, the residence boasts an impressive three reception areas across its accommodation line-up which comprises a kitchen come dining space, conservatory and sitting room.
All bedrooms are ensuite and more importantly are a good size. The vibe of the house is mainly modern, but touches like exposed beams in the dining space bring originality and will really allow its new owner to take it any direction they wish.
Outside, there’s a useful shed; tasteful paving and patio and what can only be described as an enormous and beautifully maintained lawn.
