TRADING UP: Little Island, Cork - €480,000

MINT internal and external order, a modern decor, high spec, and good gardens, plus a large, detached garage, all add to the package at Eastend, a good-size family dormer home on the Clash Road at Ballytrasna, just east of Cork city at Little Island.

Size: 205sq m (2,200sq ft)

Bathrooms: 4

Bedrooms: 4

BER: Pending

Newly listed for its house-proud owners at €480,000, via Fiona Waldron, of Jeremy Murphy Associates, is this c 2,200 sq ft, detached dormer-style home. It’s just a few decades old, near lots of service and amenities, employment hub, commuter rail link, and golf courses.

One of its four bedrooms is at ground- level, with en suite.

Also on the ground level are a front living room, and a very welcoming, largely open-plan kitchen/dining/living and sun-room, in an L shape at the back.

Add in a utility/laundry, a guest toilet and one more en-suite master bedroom (with walk-in robes) all upstairs, for a tally of four beds and four baths, in all, and it’s a perfect fit for a trading-up family, Ms Waldron says.

Features include a lofty, galleried hall with cream, gloss tiles, which run through to the gloss and walnut kitchen.

VERDICT: The house is as good outside, with its large, landscaped gardens with decking, plus adaptable garage, as it is inside.
