Trading up: Turner’s Cross, Cork €375,000

No 39 Mercier Park, also known as The Moorings, is a bungalow built back in 1950, but was extended in 2003.

Size: 120sq m (1,300sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 

BER: D1

You could drop not one, but two anchors, at No 39 Mercier Park in Cork’s Turners’ Cross, in the super-handily set Mercier Park, a horse-shoe residential park that had a Stargazers album called after it, back in that band’s 1980s and 1990s heydays.

No 39 Mercier Park, also known as The Moorings, is a bungalow built back in 1950, but was extended in 2003 with a self-contained one-bed accessible unit then put on to the back, with wheelchair access, so now there are up to four bedrooms in all, a good selection of living rooms, and diverse use options open to its next occupants.

It could appeal to a young couple, to a trader down or could suit an intergenerational family who want to live close to one another, but with the added bonus of separate entrances for a modicum of independence: it could be perfect too for bolshie teenagers, or live-at-home twentysomethings (with their parents) as they save for a mortgage deposit.

Selling agent for No 39/The Moorings is Fiona Waldron of Jeremy Murphy & Associates, who guides the combined semi-detached bungalow of 1,300 sq ft at €375,000 and she says it would be a great family buy, with good parking, in a super-accessible settled suburban location near sports pitches, shops and schools.

VERDICT: Very adaptable home
