Trading Up: Modern property in sought-after Rochestown

Rochestown, Cork €630,000

A strikingly modern property with a sought-after Rochestown address and a high B3 energy rating, 14 Courtwood in Garryduff is pitched at the higher end of the trade-up market with a guide of €630,000.

Part of a development of just 15 detached houses completed in 2009, it was built to a high spec.

“Features include Liscannor stone and self-coloured render external finishes, Scandinavian pine windows with energy-efficient glass, solar panels, acoustic insulation and underfloor heating at ground level,” says Seán McCarthy of ERA Downey McCarthy.

It has over 2,700sq ft of living space which, at ground level, includes two carpeted living rooms, a utility room, a guest WC as well as an L-shaped kitchen with cream units and a centre island.

The first floor has a bathroom and four carpeted bedrooms including two with en-suite shower rooms. From here, a staircase leads up to the attic where there is a large open-plan room with Velux windows and carpet flooring.

“This is spacious modern family home in one of Cork’s finest residential locations,” says Mr McCarthy who describes the property as being exceptionally well presented.

No 14 is one of seven Courtwood properties which show on the Property Price Register as selling for €415,356 each in May this year.

One of these, Number 1, shows as being resold for €585,000 last month.

VERDICT: It’s empty at present but will look really well once a new owner has added all the finishing touches.
