There’s a light, bright and airy touch to 11, Glincool Park, off Maglin Road just west of Cork City near Ballincollig — it’s almost a Scandinavian feel, in fact.
All fresh and crisp, the feel-good factor comes from the use of lots of pale wood in floors and elsewhere. Keeping the walls white, or shades just off-white, helps make the place look good for first impressions.
The detached bungalow is, indeed, in good order, and punches in with about 950 sq ft of space as it stands, with three bedrooms. But, the attics in these homes are convertible, so there’s scope for quite a bit of extra floor area without too much hassle.
And, another easy expansion option is to glass in, or in some other way enclose the current car port on the house’s front right corner, and this could be then opened up into the main section and hall of the house. Alternatively, a new owner can just take it as-is, and enjoy it, as it’s already fully refurbished, says selling agent Michael O’Donoghue of REA O’Donoghue Clarke. He guides it at €215,000.
It’s got a decent 16’ by 12’ living room with fireplace, an equal sized kitchen/dining room plus utility, and one of the three bedrooms is en suite with a shower, while the main family bathroom has bath with shower, plus a ceramic radiator.
No 11 also has off-street parking, that car-port for extra shelter (great too for drying clothes), mains services and an enclosed back garden.
VERDICT:Decluttering works a treat when you’re selling, as clealry shown in this home.
