Ideal for first-time buyers

CLAREVILLE is a small estate of Dutch bungalows in a great location just outside Cork’s city centre. A walk to town and the Lough in the other direction, it’s handy for UCC and the city.

And at the size and price, Roncalli, No 34 Clareville is perfect for first-time buyers. On the market with Michael O’Donoghue of O’Donoghue Clarke, the property is a three bed, with a south-facing back garden and while it needs work, is in good condition overall, he says.

It has new windows and central heating, but has been let for a number of years, so decoration and upgrading is in order.

Rooms include living and dining rooms, a kitchen, bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, with two further bedrooms overhead.
