Trading up: Westgate, Bishopstown, Cork €425,000

This home is in a highly popular location, just off the Curraheen Road, near schools, shops, services and the sports facilities at the CIT.

Size: 1,615 sq ft inc attic 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 4 

BER: N/A

Not only is there a triangular green area across the road from the front of 44 Westgate in Cork’s Bishopstown, but its back garden is 100’ long — and “they don’t build them on sites like that anymore,” exclaims selling agent Michael Downey of ERA Downey McCarthy, quoting a €425,000 asking price on this well-updated semi-d.

No 44’s in super nick. It has a converted garage as an optional fourth bedroom or study, and the attic has been converted too, with good, carpeted permanent stair access to this top level bonus on high. 

The quoted floor area of 1,600 sq ft includes that attic room, and the mid level meanwhile houses three bedrooms, and a main family bathroom.

At ground level, there are two standard-sized, front and back reception rooms off the wood-floored hall, each with open fireplaces and the back room has patio and garden access. 

Behind also is good-sized bright kitchen/diner, also opening to the garden/decking. There’s a utility and guest WC, and the rear aspect is south-west.

The clincher for many trading-up/trading-in family buyers is the 100’ back garden (a great extra-space generous site feature in many of Westgate’s homes) which “offers huge potential for extensions or sunrooms,” says ERA’s Mr Downey.

No 44 also has side access to the back garden, off-street parking, and is in a highly popular location, just off the Curraheen Road, near schools, shops, services, sports facilities at the CIT, as well as being within a short walk of the CUH medical complex.
