UNOBSTRUCTED and breathtaking views of Rosscarbery bay are bound to make Burgatia a hot ticket on the local property scene.
That, and the fact that the five bedroom/three bathroom house, new to the market this week, is a 20-minute walk to the village, and just 15 minutes from local schools and the Warren Beach.
With a price tag of €495,000 it’s at the upper end of the scale, but outside of the views, it has plenty more to offer.
Set on an elevated site of 0.4 acres, the 2,500 sq foot residence was built 30 years ago, although it’s wearing its age better than most, thanks to careful maintenance by its owners.
It has been upgraded and extended over its three decades, to include a sun room which enjoys some of the home’s best vantage points over the bay.
A solid roof means this room can be used all year round without getting either too hot or too cold.
An adjoining door to the sun terrace with tasteful and easily maintained flagstones reveals an obvious spot for entertaining, while in the winter it would undoubtedly make a cosy spot to hunker down in.
A charming hallway, complete with always on-trend monochrome tiles, sets the tone for what is a tastefully decorated home in turnkey condition.
A classic wood kitchen is in fitting with the semi-rural setting and there’s also a separate dining area, with plenty of space for families.
A utility room and space for a playroom will be other attractive features for families on the look-out for suitable spaces, while a statement staircase leads the way to the home’s generously-sized five bedrooms.
A detached and pristine garage is an added bonus of the property which
Andy O’Donoghue of selling agents Hodnett Forde says it represents a unique opportunity to own a family home in the highly sought after area.
