Wilton residence expected to attract good viewings

Because of its location in a mature residential area walking distance of both University College Cork and Cork University Hospital, No 4 Green Park, Wilton Lawn in Cork is expected to attract good viewings.

Built in the 1970s, it’s a three-bed semi-detached dormer bungalow which is new to the market with a guide of €285,000. Gretchen Kelleher of Barry Auctioneers says it’s been very well maintained and would make an excellent family home.

Offering just over 1,100sq ft of living space, the property has two sitting rooms with fireplaces, one at the front and one at the back. There’s also a kitchenette, a bathroom and a downstairs bedroom as well as a further two upstairs.

The property has a small lawn at the front, parking at the side and a long back garden which could potentially used for an extension.

Located within a five-minute walk from Cork University Hospital, Green Park is around a kilometre and a half from UCC.

“It offers easy access to the N40 South Link road and is just a 10-minute drive from the city centre," says Ms Kelleher.

She says that No 6, two doors away, recently went “sale agreed” above its €275,000 asking price following very good interest.

VERDICT: Could attract investors and first-time buyers as well as families.
