FOR a Midleton buyer who wants to go up in the world for a better view of the Owenacurra Estuary, this three-bed penthouse apartment at No 26 Charleston Maltings could be an option.

Situated on the fifth floor of the 200-year-old stone malt mill building which was converted into apartments in 2005, the 1,155 sq ft property is new to the market with a guide of €170,000.

Clare O’Sullivan of Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan believes this represents good value for a three-bed property in Midleton. “It’s a beautifully decorated, well kept owner- occupied apartment with views across the estuary to Ballyannon Wood,” she adds.

All the rooms have vaulted ceiling including the spacious kitchen/living dining room which has tiled flooring and high gloss units with integrated appliances in the kitchen and oak flooring and French doors in the living area. Also in the apartment is a bathroom and three carpeted bedrooms, including one with built-in wardrobes and an en suite.

Fitted with gas heating, it has a C1 energy rating and comes with one designated parking space.

Ms O’Sullivan says the waterfront apartment complex at Bailick, a little more than a mile from the town centre is well kept and attractive with a landscaped courtyard.

Charlton Malting apartments don’t come on the market too often. The only sale recorded in the last two years by the Property Price Register was that of No 17, a two-bed apartment which sold for €157,000 last November.
