LAURAL HOUSE MAY be close to Cork city centre, but it has a tranquil location all the same, just off the Model Farm Road on the Ballincollig side.

The new owners will have the best of both worlds, then, as well as an eye-catching four bedroom home.

Spanning a magnificent 393 sq m/4,230 sq m, the modernist-style Laural House was built in 2012 by architect Dermot Harrington.

The entire home has a south-westerly aspect, with the floods of natural light helped along by numerous skylights.

The kitchen/dining area is open plan, encompassing a lounge too. It’s L-shaped, meaning there’s even more opportunity for all of that sunlight to shine in.

It boasts an island, granite worktops and high quality storage units, plus access to the garden via large double glazed sliding doors.

Off this area, you’ll find a sizeable lounge, also with access to the garden, and an office, perfect for study or work.

Upstairs are the bedrooms – all four are doubles – plus their respective en-suite bathrooms. The master bedroom also has a walk-in wardrobe, and there’s zoned underfloor heating on this level too.

Outside in the large garden, there’s even more accommodation – a detached property that spans 62 sq m/667 sq ft.  This could be used as a larger study space, or a studio, but it also makes fine secondary living quarters.

Laural House is a 20-minute drive from Cork City, and 15 to the airport, so you’ll never be too far from the necessities here. There’s loads to do around Cork, too: Fota Island is 20 minutes away by car, as is the historical town of Cobh.
