Eircode : T12E5D8

4 Bedrooms
2 Baths



BARRY AUCTIONEERS AND VALUERS are delighted to bring to the market this homely 4-bedroom, 2-bathroom property, situated in the much sought after suburb of Blackrock, only a few kilometres from Cork City. This house is enhanced by the large south facing, mature, private garden and benefits from off street parking with a large driveway leading to a double garage.

This exclusive estate was built in the 60s by O’Connor Builders and designed by architect Denis Higgins, who was responsible for many builds in Blackrock. Higgins’ labour is a testament to his craft as the property remains fresh, with a beautiful flow of light throughout.

8 Barnstead has been a very happy family home for the owners, shown by the immaculate care it has been given over the years. It is in need of modernisation and presents an excellent opportunity that will attract a lot of interest.

Blackrock is a well-connected suburb as the number 202, and number 215 bus routes link Blackrock to the city, making it a very convenient location to live.

Viewing is a must to appreciate.
