Keane Mahony Smith are delighted to bring to the market this impressive family home set in a quiet residential cul-de-sac adjacent to the Lough. In the ownership of the current family for over sixty years, this beautifully presented house sits on a corner site with additional side road access and provides superb potential for new owners to extend and create a stunning home in this much sought after location.
Standing on the east side of Cork's famous Lough, a protected wildlife sanctuary since 1881, St. Finbarr's Park is quite simply a great place to live. It is a leisurely 15 minute walk to the city centre and a mere stroll to UCC Campus, Bons Secours hospital etc. Well served also by great local schools, a supermarket and an excellent bus service (route 216 via Glasheen Rd or 214 via the Lough Rd).
