Hot tub and hot deals in two Cork suburbs — splashing out anyone?

A HOT tub on the decking outside, and a feature glass-block wall in the hallway, yes indeed the noughties style makeover has touched down at Glencairn.

This trading-up family home with a few converted attic rooms as a bonus is at Boherboy Road, near Lotabeg just north and east of Cork city beyond Silversprings.

Estate agent Michael O’Donovan of Sherry FitzGerald seeks €399,000 for the four-bed detached, which is says is very well priced for what’s on offer.

The ground floor has over 1,200 sq ft of space, and the attic with Velux windows has up to three office rooms, plus a WC and so is very adaptable for a range of family uses, such as play areas, dens or studies. There’s around 450 sq ft plus eaves storage at attic level.

As it stands, it has its four bedrooms to one side of the entry hall, with a feature open-tread staircase to the attic level, and to the right is a lounge, a family/dining room and there’s also a small 8’ by 7’ kitchen (described as a ‘preparation’ kitchen) plus utility. Overall condition is good, and the house has gas heating, an alarm and an intercom.

Also pitched at traders up north of the river, with the same selling agent is 33 Merrion Court in Montenotte. Mr O’Donovan seeks €385,000 for this mellow red brick-finished two-storey home with around 1,460 sq ft of space.

It has a private aspect, south facing back garden, four bedrooms with one en suite, and two principal reception rooms, study and good-sized kitchen.

Cork city is within a good brisk downhill walk.
