The attractions of the property includes its location, 3km from Blarney and within easy reach of the city centre, and the fact it’s detached, owner occupied and very well looked after.

“The current owners have had it for around three years — they replaced the flooring, redecorated, updated the bathrooms and put down a new patio,’’ says Mr Hogan pointing out that it’s a very modern home which has been significantly upgraded since it was built in the 1980s.

Offering 1,200sq ft of living space, it has an open plan kitchen-dining-living room.

This includes a kitchen with country- style cream units as well as a timber-floored living room with a fireplace and a stove.
