Trading up: Frankfield, Cork €445,000

This home goes on open view this afternoon, for a brief window, from 2.30pm.

Size 179 sq m (1,921 sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


Now about 20 years old, the four-bed detached house at 4 East Avenue, in Cork’s Frankfield suburb is very much original, just freshened up a bit for its sale. 

It goes on open view this afternoon, for a brief window, from 2.30pm.

Punching in at just over 1,900 sq ft, No 4 is on a corner site close to the entrance to the East Avenue section in the sizeable, well-matured O’Flynn Construction Parkgate development above Douglas, and has remained in its standard layout. 

This means separate reception rooms (family, living and dining,) plus kitchen/diner, with rear-facing bow window with unusual wide roof cover.

It’s priced at €445,000 by Ann O’Mahony of Sherry FitzGerald who says it’s in good decorative condition (it’s just had the familiar magnolia-style paint makeover) and it’s vacated and empty of furniture to add to the ‘blank canvas’ pitch for any new owners.

Once in new hands it’s likely to get upgrades that will include a new kitchen among other modernising touches.

Overhead, it has four bedrooms, the largest is to front, with built-ins and is en-suite with a shower over a bath. 

The smallest bedroom is c 9’x9’, plus there’s another bath in the main bathroom. Back downstairs, there’s also a guest WC, cloak closet and a utility under the stairs.

There are brick walls around the front perimeter, with cobble-lock drive, and behind is a concrete patio and block boundary walls, and a steel storage shed in the corner is included in the sale, as are appliances, curtains etc.

VERDICT: Ready for an injection of personality.
