Four homes of a kind in Cork
At home in Ardrostig
Ardrostig House, Bishoptown, Co Cork
For Sale: €375k
Although Ardrostig House is being marketed as a site and development opportunity, the detached bungalow could form the basis for a large contemporary house, subject to planning permission.
The price recently dropped by €125,000 too, making it a more attractive proposition for a family home.
Ardrostig House comes on a one-third of an acre site with access to the main Cork-Bandon road, immediately adjacent to the service station by the Bishopscourt Roundabout.
The property is aimed primarily at builders and developers, and there is the potential for a number of different residential or commercial possibilities, subject, again, to planning permission. The existing house is a large detached bungalow situated on a large level site directly behind a commercial unit, and has a legal right of way access to and from the main road.
Ardrostig has 150sqm of living space, and has been rented out for some years.
The accommodation includes an entrance hallway, living room, sitting room and kitchen / dining room, five bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The house is close to the flagship Dunnes Stores at Bishopscourt; there are also branches of Tesco and Aldi.
Bishopstown has a population of over 24,000. It is the home of CIT and has a large student population. There are three secondary schools - Mount Mercy College, Bishopstown Community College and Colaiste an Spioraid Naoiamh, as well as a number of primary schools. Boston Scientific is one of the principal employers in the area.
