Decorwise, it’s full of soft greys and pale pastels, plus attractive wallpapers, and much of the flooring is wideboard maritime pine, while feature wood doors are painted ladderback-style, an unusual and effective touch.

There’s a very attractive porcelain-tiled kitchen with Belfast sink and painted units. Overhead, the master bedrooms is carpeted, as is the stairs and landing, with the lower stair portion a mix of painted steps and carpet.

There’s about 1,200 sq ft within, all done to a uniformly high standard, and externally there’s a concrete drive, while the back garden is neat, fenced-in and has a sunny seating section and paved patio at the far end, bookended by mature trees.

Selling agent for the dash and brick-faced No 14 Oakdene is Carrigaline-town based Michael Pigott who says it’s simply a superb property, and he adds that it’s accessible, within walking distance of all of the town’s services as well as being an easy commute back to Cork city.
