No 87 is being sold for its trading up owner, an artist/painter, and is in excellent order, says Patricia Stokes of Lisney, but as the owners have now moved, the art is down off the walls.

Instead, much of the colour left comes from the planting in the front garden either side of the narrow drive, and inside are two receptions, one a good 17’ by almost 12’ wide with bay window and fireplace.

The back room is smaller, and there’s a utility off the kitchen, plus guest WC, so lots of boxes ticked for practical, day-to-day living.

Overhead are three beds, one of them en suite, plus main bathroom with wooden floor.

No 7 Fernwood has gas heating, double glazing, a C3 BER,and side access to a rear elevated garden, with shed.

Trading up: Lehenaghmore, Cork €265,000

VERDICT: The €265,000 asking price puts it in reach of lots of first-time buyers.
