Trading Up: Ballincollig, Cork - €340,000

IT’S quite possible to guess from the colourfully landscaped outside front yard, but No 82 Coopers Grange is not your standard townhouse.

Size: 125 sq m (1,349 sq ft)
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 3

Once you cross the tidy threshold  it swiftly reveals itself to be a  lovely, personalised family home, complete with bright, 15’ by 14’ rear single storey extension, opening through sliding doors to paved patios.

Now pushed to almost  1,350 sq ft, it’s got great living accommodation and is in pristine order, a real stroll-in job.

Agent Norma Healy of Sherry FitzGerald has No 82  on open view today at noon, and Monday at 5.30 pm.

Apart from overall appreciation of this above-standard buy,  she’s expecting  oohs and aahs, and requests for the code of the distinctive turquoise colour on the walls of the kitchen, a rooms which is set by the front entrance to the mid-terrace, three storey home.

Behind is a 17’ wide by 12’ deep family room/dining, and the new living room is further back, through pocket doors with a roof light overhead to get light deep into the core.

It has three bedrooms over the next two level above, one en suite, and to the back is a small, but  smart,  paved easy-keep walled yard. Attention to detail is evident: even the timber shed has pvc guttering and downpipes, to keep the paving crisp!
