Trading up: Crossbarry, Cork €270,000

One of the very best reasons to go have a look at 37 Cluain na Croise can be seen in the picture above: it’s privy to a large, long lush lawn and private back garden, with views out to far-distant, equally green hills.

Size: 116sq m (1,250sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 3 

BER: C

You see big, open skies here too; you know you are not confined in a city or town suburban plot, but the amenities of such places are a short drive away.

It’s country-living, lite, as No 37 Cluain na Croise is a three-bed semi-d in Cork’s Crossbarry, a 15-minute spin by car back to the city, and Bandon, Ballincollig and Kinsale are nearby too.

Set by a cul de sac, facing a landscaped section with off-street parking on a graveled front drive, it’s got a partial stone and render facade over two levels to the front, and has about 1,100 sq ft of accommodation within, in spotless order, top to bottom.

Selling agent is Frank Walsh of O’Mahony Walsh, and he guides at €270,000. 

The Price Register doesn’t show too many comparable sales of semi-ds in Cluain na Croise, which has a mix of modern townhouses, semis and detacheds: it does however show a semi, No 29, fetching €250,000 in 2015. 

Mr Walsh says No 37’s “a must-see,” adding that it has been given lots of attention to detail throughout, “with a sense of quality and warmth that just makes you want to live there.”

VERDICT: Easy living in the country
