Spectacular views from Norville

This 1950s-built house has views of Cork’s future!

It’s a desirable four bedroom, detached family home located in the highly sought after residential development of Sidney Park.

Sidney Park commands a lofty position on the edge of Cork city and offers spectacular views across the entire city as well as the port and harbour.

Patricia Stokes, who is looking after the sale for Lisney, told us more about the house: “Sidney Park was developed in 1950 and offers an exclusive scheme of 43 homes. Norville enjoys one of the more private settings within the park towards the end of the cul-de-sac.

“Arranged over two floors and extending to approximately 160 square metres, this home has adapted well over its lifetime being altered to accommodate the more open plan arrangements currently sought by families and added to at the front and rear with the addition of a sun room complete with south facing deck off to the front and an extensive dining room to the rear.”

This home offers an ideal location as it’s within a five minute walk of St Patrick Street. The floor to ceiling height at both entry and first floor level is unusual to find and enhances the internal spaces filling them with light.

You expect features and character from a home of the fifties and this does not disappoint with architraves, window design and heights, fireplaces and external cladding in red brick.

A family home, Norville has the benefit of being within a short stroll from a range of schools including Christian Brothers, Scoil Mhuire, St Angela’s, St Luke’s as well as having Hewitt and Bruce College close by.

Patricia added: “With the artisan setting of St Luke’s Cross and all its social elements on the doorstep, as well as the additional wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants on both McCurtain and Patrick Street, makes for an easy decision any evening.”

Accommodation extends to an entrance hall, lounge, kitchen/dining/living area, guest toilet and sun room all at ground floor level. The first floor has four well-proportioned bedrooms, three of which has fitted wardrobes, as well as a family bathroom and toilet.

As for extra storage, there’s an attic and a detached shed to the back of the house. The property is accessed via double gates with a gravelled driveway providing plenty of parking. The garden is planted with mature shrubs and finished in gravel which is easily changed to lawn. The back garden is beautifully landscaped with additional decking and mature planting. The back wall is original stone which enhances the character of this home as well as its overall privacy.
