Tucked away in Connonagh near Leap, County Cork, is this large four-bedroom detached house, Hazelwood.
Enjoying a delightful setting and a spacious interior with special features including a large cathedral style window which offers beautiful views out towards the woodlands and lawns, Hazelwood is a fantastic choice for a group or family of eight.
Your new home from home benefits from ample off-road parking for 10 cars, as well as a generous patio with clothesline, storage shed, and furniture, ideal for evenings when you fancy dining alfresco.
The ground floor plays host to a large and fully-equipped kitchen/diner with adjoining utility, an inviting sitting room where you can relax on the plush seating in front of the crackling open fire as you watch your favourite show on the TV, a conservatory where you can enjoy your morning coffee as you plan the days adventures, and a lovely study space for those wanting to catch up on work whilst away.
Completing the ground floor is a wonderful double bedroom with Jack-and-Jill shower room.
Head upstairs, where you can wash away the day in the monochromatic bathroom with an indulgent soak in the bath or a quick shower, before discovering three further bedrooms, a king-size and two doubles, one of which benefits from its own en-suite shower room.
