Situated just a hop outside Cork city centre on the Blackrock Road, Greenways is a restored four-bed semi-detached period home, on the market for €625,000.
The house has been well maintained and upgraded in recent years, while still keeping some of its original period features, including fireplaces, high ceilings and sash windows.
Greenways is a big property, measuring 143sqm in size, spread out over three floors. It consists of an entrance hallway with original terrazzo tiled floor and period black front door. Its living room is enhanced by a bay window overlooking the outside lawn, a cast-iron fireplace and doors leading to the dining room.
The kitchen has a polished timber floor, fitted units, integrated appliances and doors leading outside to the back garden. Upstairs on the first floor, there's the main bathroom, which is newly fitted with a double power shower, and the first bedroom with its own fireplace. The master bedroom (with bay window) is also on this level.
Lastly, the two remaining bedrooms are on the second floor: one room has a double aspect incorporating a roof light, and the other has a view over The Marina and the city centre.
Outside, there's a south-facing front garden and gravelled drive, while the back has a patio and barbecue area. There is also a garage with utility room included.
The house is a two minute walk from Ballintemple village, which has shops, and two pubs The Venue and the The Temple Inn, while The Marina and Atlantic Pond are a short walk away.
Cork city centre is a five minute drive, and there are several schools in the locality, including Beaumont, Crab Lane, Ursulines and Ashton.
