IF YOU’RE LOOKING for a home that enjoys the sense of community that comes with living in a village without sacrificing the wide variety of amenities that a city has to offer, Blackrock Villas is a good place to start.

Located just 3km from Cork city centre in the leafy suburb of Blackrock, Blackrock Villas is an exclusive new development of spacious three, four and five-bedroom family homes. Prices for three-bed homes start at €395,000, with four-bed detached homes and five-bed terraced properties launching soon. A limited number of three-bed semi-detached homes are currently available. 

Blackrock Villas is ideally positioned at the end of a tree-lined avenue close to the south bank of the River Lee, while plans for a new municipal park including a playground in the lands north of the development mean little ones will be able to play outdoors while being close to home.

Further adding to the appeal of buying a new-build property, homes at Blackrock Villas boast multiple high quality features and finishes, including contemporary kitchens by Kube, stone counter tops, composite front doors with a five-point locking system and panel-style fitted wardrobes. Bathrooms come complete with high quality sanitary ware and tiles, while walls are painted throughout in an on-trend neutral paint.

An important factor for eco-conscious buyers, all homes at the development are A-rated for energy-efficiency to reduce energy waste and maximise energy use, with high levels of both insulation and air tightness. Externally, driveways are paved and feature parking space for two cars, while rear gardens are seeded. 

Families are sure to appreciate having six primary schools and three secondary schools in the area, meaning the morning rush to get to school can be a thing of the past. Meanwhile, fitness enthusiasts will never be short of things to do, with three rowing clubs, a 5km cycle path and a leisure centre nearby.

Days off can be spent at the village’s many cafes, restaurants and bars, at the weekly farmers’ market in the square, watching a match at Pairc Ui Chaoimh stadium or learning about the universe at Blackrock Castle Observatory.

Cork city is a 15-minute drive from the development, while a selection of public transport links means you can leave the car at home. The scheme has easy access to the N40 South Ring Road network, providing access to western routes as well as Dublin, Waterford and beyond. 

Homes at Blackrock Villas are on the market from €395,000 through Sherry FitzGerald New Homes. Viewings are available by appointment, with a show home coming later this summer. Three-bed properties are eligible for the Help to Buy Scheme. To find out more, visit blackrockvillas.ie
