The three-bed homes are already sold out.
That means, if you fancy nabbing a house in one of Cork’s swankiest new addresses, you’ll be spending upwards of half a million quid.
They’re pulling out all the stops to make it worth your while, however; just a few minutes stroll from the coffee shops of Blackrock Village, the Marina, and the Atlantic Pond, Blackrock Villas is an exclusive development of three, four and five-bedroom homes designed to a first-class spec by Glenveigh Properties.
One four-bed remains available (the rest have been snapped up and the asking price is upwards of €555,000) with registration now open for the even larger five-bed terrace homes, all named after precious stones; The Quartz, The Emerald, The Sapphire and The Diamond.
Inside, the decor is sleek and chic, with mid-tone neutral paint, white ceilings, shaker-style doors, and contemporary skirting and architraves.
The bathrooms are stylish and contemporary with modern taps, showerheads and bath fittings and trendy tiles in all wet areas.
Panel style fitted wardrobes appear in all the master and second bedrooms, just like the show house design.
There’s a pull-down attic ladder in all homes for accessing that all-important stow-away space.
Outside, driveways finished in attractive paving with two car parking spaces. The gardens, accessed by French double doors, are seeded with secure post and panel fencing.
