The perfect trader-up for a growing family

AN expanse of harbour views come with the Glounthaune house, Woodlands, in Upper Annmount, and at 3,300sq ft, the house itself is no slouch either.

Built in the 1970s, with part-slate hung on the outside and a conservatory porch entrance, the two-storey house on a site of a third of an acre is for sale with local agents Kevin O’Connell of Dan O’Connell & Co estate agents, who guides it at €750,000.

It is a perfect trader-up for a family, as it comes with six bedrooms, three reception rooms and a dining room with only massive views.

It has a rail link to Cork city eight kms away, as well as a nearby business park and employment centres in Little Island and Carrigtwohill.

Meanwhile, the same agent has another offering with an entirely different future ahead of it at Castle View, Little Island.

A detached four-bed bungalow, it backs onto to the East Gate Business Park, and may have a commercial future ahead of it given its setting.

Being sold as-is, and in good order with about 1,400 sq ft of space, it has a €450,000 guide price.
