In the popular seaside village of Ballycotton, affordable starter homes like No 23 Silver Strand are quite rare to the market.

Guiding at €235,000, it’s a spacious end of terrace house with 1,200sq ft of accommodation. Selling agents Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan says it’s already getting viewings from buyers from both Cork city and Midleton.

It’s affordably priced and very attractive to people who, as a lifestyle choice, want to live near the sea, says auctioneer Clare O’Sullivan noting that it’s a well maintained modern property which was built in 2003.

The two main rooms on the ground floor both stretch from front to rear – one is a laminate floored living room with a fireplace and the other a kitchen diner with fitted units and integrated appliances. To the rear there is also a guest WC, a small utility room and a small study or bedroom.

The first floor has a bathroom and three bedrooms including one with a walk in wardrobe and an en-suite.

Located a short distance from the sea, in an estate built around two green areas, No 23 is within a ten minute walk from pubs and restaurants in the village and a 20 minute drive from Midleton.

Of the seven Ballycotton sales recorded so far this year on the Property Price Register, only one went for less than €268,000. In September No 11 Silver Strand, a detached four-bed, sold for €315,000.

Verdict: Atlantic views, beaches and cliff walks make Ballycotton a popular choice for those who want a coastal lifestyle.
