As No 24 Edgewood comes out of the sales trap, it will surely try to keep up with, or even surpass, the neighbours.
Size: 128 sq m (1375 sq ft)
A modern, well-kept four-bed semi-d in the Maryborough Ridge development above Douglas in Cork, it carries a price tag of €385,000 with estate agent Lawrence Sweeney of Savills.
And, just last year, the right next door No 25 made its exact €375,000 asking price via locally-based agents DNG Creedon, coming on top of comparable Edgewood sales of €380,000-€400,000: so, no pressure.....
No 24 comes with the bonus of a 215 sq ft attic room, and the Savills agent Mr Sweeney says it’s in great condition from bottom to top, with a high quality kitchen in walnut, with porcelain floor tiling and splashback mosaic-work, some cherrywood floors, a high overall decor standard, and a south-west aspect fenced and walled back garden to boot.
There’s a front living room with marble fireplace and cherry floor, rear sitting/family room with patio access, kitchen/diner, utility, and guest WC.
Up a carpeted stairs are four bedrooms, one’s a single/study, plus a master with en suite, slide robes and large window, topped with a small demi-lune glass pane.
The 16’ by 13 attic room, meanwhile is multi-purpose, with built-ins, and has two Veluxes to the rear.
VERDICT: Some three-beds are hitting this price level, and No 24’s a four-bed, plus attic. Join the space race.
