Arbour Court
Donnybrook Hill
Glen House

A choice of four attractive properties for sale in the much sought-after Douglas area of Cork.

'Glen House', Hettyfield 

€725k Cohalan Downing, (021) 427 7717

'Glen House', with its high surrounding hedges, offers a high level of seclusion, especially on the southwesterly side of the garden. There's an extension to the original 1950s building, which has a large hallway/landing on both storeys, and a total area of 3,300 sq ft. Downstairs also has a south-facing breakfast room leading to the conservatory, as well as a living room and dining room, plus kitchen with utility. Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, two en-suite, and the attic has been converted into a playroom/den.

Donnybrook Hill, Douglas

€550k James G Coughlan & Associates, (021) 425 1500

While Douglas was apparently the place where Ireland’s first centrally-heated house was located, this house at Donnybrook Hill has triple heating: gas-fired, oil-fired and back boiler central heating. The ground floor of the property has a lounge, a dining room, kitchen/breakfast room, a morning room, a sun lounge and a conservatory. In total, there are 2,280 sq ft of living accommodation and the house is on a quarter-acre site. Built in the late 1930s, it is mock Tudor in style — a particular feature of the upstairs two double bedrooms and two smaller bedrooms. The family bathroom is ultra-modern with an island shower unit.

6 Arbour Court, Grange

 €380k  Sherry Fitzgerald Cork, (021) 427 3041

Arbour Court started off as a small development of about eight bungalows in the late 1970s, but each has developed in its own way since then. No 6 has had a conservatory added, and the master bedroom extended. The kitchen has been modernised to include an island unit with granite worktop and breakfast bar. Next door is the dining room and a 70s-style lounge with large windows. There is also a family room, four bedrooms, plus a family bathroom and guest toilet. Total floor area is 2,034 sq ft.

‘Glengarry’, South Douglas Road

 €295k  Frank V Murphy & Co, (021) 427 4204

This detached 1950s house is on an elevated site with some nice views of the surrounding countryside to the front. Plus it's south facing, with a generous back garden. It needs modernisation inside though. There is a sitting room and a living room, both just over 14ft by 12ft and with fireplaces. Downstairs at the back are the similarly sized kitchen/breakfast room and bedroom (with wash hand basin) and the bathroom. Upstairs are two more bedrooms, giving a total area of 1,300 sq ft.
