Four-beds provide food for thought
Cluain Mara, Kinsale, Co Cork
Well-heeled foodies seeking a second home in the gourmet hotspot of Kinsale, as well as local buyers, will be attracted to Cluain Mara, a new development of three and four-bed homes in the maritime town.
Four of the eight units from the initial phase launched at Cluain Mara in early April are still for sale, with the remainder reserved.
These 1,818 sq ft properties range in price from €460,000 to €475,000, reflecting the popularity of the upmarket seaside location. All are from the C house type and are four-bed detached homes.
There will be another opportunity to snap up one of the Farm Lane properties in August, when a second phase of the development is due to come on stream.
These will most likely be a mix of three-bed townhouses and four-bed semi-detached properties, though prices have yet to be confirmed, according to selling agent Savills. When developer Centurion Homes has completed the scheme, Cluain Mara will have 27 units in all.
The exteriors of the homes are rendered in cream plaster, with picture windows trimmed in black.
Inside, the contemporary-style Kube kitchens have silestone worktops and island units, while the sanitary ware in the bathrooms is from Villeroy & Boch.
The driveways at Cluain Mara are cobble-locked with brick walls between houses. The homes have an A2 BER and come with a heat recovery system, solar panels on the roof, underfloor heating and a wood-burning stove.
Cluain Mara is a 10 minute walk from the centre of Kinsale and a 20 minute drive from Cork International Airport.
