Longshore opportunity to live in the big smoke, on the water
Longshore Avenue, Jacob's Island, Cork City
Seeking a large new waterfront property in Cork? You couldn't go far wrong with Longshore Avenue at the Jacob's Island development in Blackrock - Lough Mahon is on the scheme's eastern side and the Douglas Estuary is located on its southern side.
Buyers at the estate can take in the shoreline walkway from Blackrock Castle to the old Passage West rail line and the 18ac of mature parklands.
There are two four-bed semi-detached homes still available at Longshore Avenue, which sits at the tip of the Mahon peninsula and was built by McCarthy Developments. Each of the houses measures 1,350 sq ft and costs from €385,000 and comes with two parking spaces.
Inside, there is a separate living room with a solid fuel stove and fireplace surround to the front and an L-shaped kitchen/dining room to the rear, with double doors leading from the dining space to a south-facing back garden.
Upstairs are four bedrooms - one of which is the master ensuite - and a family bathroom. There is a PC sum of €5,000 for a fitted kitchen and bedroom wardrobes.
The properties have an A3 BER and feature an air-to-water central heating system and a heat-recovery ventilation system. Longshore Avenue is close to the Mahon Point retail and cinema complex.
Road links include Cork's South Link and the Jack Lynch Tunnel. Cork City centre is a six-minute drive, while Cork Airport is a seven-minute drive, traffic permitting.
Viewings at Longshore Avenue are currently by appointment, though open viewings are due to be held soon.
