Ballinlough, Cork - €385,000
Maturity, privacy and easy access to Blackrock, Douglas and the city centre are among the attractions of No 26 Glencoo Lawn on the Boreenmanna Road. It’s tucked away in a quiet 1950s or 1960s-built estate running between Boreenmanna Road and the Ballinlough Road which seems unlikely to get too much through traffic.
Situated in a row of once-identical properties which have been given individuality by a succession of owners, No 26 is a well-kept three-bed semi located close to the top of a cul de sac.
Seeking offers of €385,000, DNG Creedon says it’s an excellent family home and that the location is superb. “For additional space it has an attic conversion,” says auctioneer Glen O’Connor noting that its south-facing rear garden is exceptionally private.
Accommodation includes two living rooms, a kitchen-diner, a guest WC, an attached garage used as a utility room, as well as a bathroom and three bedrooms on the first floor and a bathroom and an attic room above that.
Exiting Glenoo on to the Boreenmanna Road there is easy access to the city centre which is a 10-minute drive away.
Exiting on to the Ballinlough Road provides easy access to local primary schools.
VERDICT: Buyers with kids will love the mature location that is close to schools.
