Good value at Maryville Mews

OLD estate walls lie to the back and sides of this handy little house at 5 Maryville Mews in Ballintemple, Cork, and give immediate character.

A three bed on the Blackrock side of the city, no 5 is an end of row, so it comes with a side entrance and has a good back garden to boot.

According to Billy Casey of Casey and Kingston, it’s in great condition – ready to move into, he says, and at the guide of €280,000 is good value for a house its quality and location.

Simply laid out, it comes with a sitting room and kitchen-diner, with country-style fireplaces in both rooms and a range of good kitchen units at the back.

The upstairs has three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and a main bathroom. Heating is by gas.

There’s parking to the front and the Atlantic Pond and the Marina are close by for walkers. Mahon Point and Douglas shopping centres are minutes away and the location means no 5 is also handy for town.
