Savills is delighted to present No.8 Birchley A magnificent and spacious five bed detached house situated on a very quiet tree-lined cul-de-sac on approximately 0.7 acres of beautiful, private gardens and located in one of Cork' s most prestigious residential areas. This very well-designed family home is located in one of Cork' s most desirable areas, just off the Model Farm Road, with very easy access to the South Ring Road. It benefits from very private, large and sunny westerly-facing gardens to the rear with a good selection of mature trees on its boundaries. It will definitely be your dream family home and is convenient to all the very best amenities this area has to offer, including river walks, shops and schools, universities, sports clubs, hospitals, restaurants, hotels, as well as a bus stop only 250 metres from the house. Making your way into No.8 you are greeted with a delightful wide entrance hall with a staircase leading to the first floor. Just off the hall a very generous sitting room presents itself with a beautiful marble fireplace as its focal point. Spanning the full width of the house, this wonderful room has direct views over the garden, both front and rear and is very bright and airy - an ideal room for entertaining guests, or family gatherings. To the rear of the house, and connected to the living room, is the very generous and grand dining room, with patio doors to the west facing patio and garden outside. Just beyond this is the living room, again overlooking the back garden and with an open fire at its heart. This room offers a quiet space to get away from it all and relax. The kitchen is large and has a fully fitted kitchen with a selection of appliances. Just off the kitchen is a generous utility room with access to the patio to the rear of the house. Also on this floor is the guest WC, accessed from the hallway. Adjoining the house is a very spacious and versatile double garage, which is ideal for conversion to other uses (e.g. additional accommodation, home gym, studio or workshop), if so desired. Ascending to the first floor you will find a large landing area with most bedrooms off it overlooking the garden to the rear of the house. The house was cleverly designed to take full advantage of the south and west light and tranquil garden views. The master bedroom suite spans the full width of the house, benefits from the aforementioned southerly and westerly views, and is serviced by a good sized en-suite. In total there are four double bedrooms and one single bedroom on this floor, as well as the main bathroom which is fully tiled with a selection of quality bathroom ware. The magnificent garden constitutes a beautiful canvas with a wonderful sunny westerly aspect, making the rear patio a sun trap, particularly through the afternoons and evenings. In addition, a variety of mature trees and shrubs on the boundaries provide excellent privacy. The front of the house has ample parking, with a long tarmac drive and a lawn, with vehicular access to the rear of house. Overall, a very generous 5-bed house, on a quiet cul-de-sac just off the Model Farm Road, with a substantial west-facing garden, No.8 is picture perfect and presents an opportunity to acquire an ideal family home in a most sought-after neighbourhood. This fantastic home represents a really unique opportunity for those wishing to trade up and live near the heart of the city. Contact us today to arrange your viewing.
