TRADING UP: Classes Lake, Cork - €269,000

No 20 Oak Avenue has extras on the side: desireable box tickers for would-be buyers on the home hunt around Cork’s Ballincollig include an extra large back garden, a side garden, and a sunny south-facing aspect to the rear, which means lovely seating out options in summer months, as well as extension possibilities now or in the future.

Size: 84sq m (920sq ft)

Bathrooms: 3

Bedrooms: 3

BER: C2

No 20’s inside in the O’Callaghan Properties’ Classes Lake development on Ballincollig’s western fringes, and is described as “highly impressive” by its selling agent Frank Walsh of O’Mahony Walsh, who guides at €269,000. It’s a three-bed semi-d, with good-sized front reception room with oak floor, and solid double doors link to the rear dining/kitchen, with lots of Neff appliances.

Overhead are three bedrooms, one with en suite, and the immaculately-kept No 20 has gas central heating and a C2 BER.

Externally, it faces a green area, has a front garden with off-street parking and gated access then on the bonus side garden to the walled and fence in rear with mature trees over the back wall boundary.

Also in the area, agent Frank Walsh has an upgraded Dutch dormer three-bed semi-d at 17 Leeview, guiding €249,000, and 176 An Caislean, also on a corner site, guiding €260,000.

VERDICT: 20 Oak Avenue is good to go, and good to grow.
