We’ve all spent a lot of time at home lately.
And if the months in lockdown have shown you that your family could do with some extra space to spread out, now could be a good time to seek out a larger property.
Around 8km from Cork city in Glounthaune, Lynwood on Windsor Hill is a deceptively spacious, five-bedroom detached bungalow with one especially fun hidden extra: an indoor heated swimming pool with access into the rear garden.
Guaranteed to delight kids and grown-ups alike, with a few inflatables and a decent waterproof speaker, this could provide hours of free entertainment for the whole family without leaving the house.
Sure, the asking price might be €725,000 but it’ll save you a packet on your leisure centre membership.
The feeling of space and privacy is noticeable throughout Lynwood. Upon arrival, you access the property via tall pillars and solid wood gates.
Stepping over the threshold reveals an inviting hallway with storage closets and from here you can access a bright lounge, which is interconnected with the dining room and the kitchen/breakfast room, a spacious utility room and a large garage that could also be used as a home gym or a bright home office.
“Popping into the wonderful south facing rear garden brings you to a large veranda that is an ideal entertainment space located just off the kitchen/breakfast room.” says agent Michael O’Donovan of Savills.
“From here, gradually descending steps lead you to a generous lawn area ideal for ball games. Within the grounds, you will find mature trees such as magnolia, ash, beech, silver birch and rowan trees.”
The grounds are also home to a steel tech shed and concrete block built workshop, perfect for a studio or workshop, while on the east gable you will find a lean-to potting shed with a single horse stable nestled away in the front garden.
It’s a handy location too: “Lynwood is located within about 8km of Cork city centre, whilst the Jack Lynch tunnel and Cork International Airport are located within close proximity,” adds O’Donovan.
“Both primary and secondary schools are easily accessed as well as the train line which will whisk you into the city centre within a 10-minute train ride.”
