Trading up: Maryborough Hill, Cork €415,000

Built around 2000, No 15 stretches to a bit over 1,300 sq ft and is guided at €415,000 by selling agent Jeremy Murphy, who says it comes with well-tended gardens as well as an immaculate interior.

Size: 123sq m (1,325sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


WELL-kept, and a walk-in job, that’s how the selling agents describe the four-bed semi-d at 15 Wheatridge, within the nicely maturing Maryborough Woods development, above Cork’s Douglas village.

Internally, it has two interconnecting reception rooms, with a bay window to the front, and also behind is the deep kitchen/diner, plus utility, and guest WC.

One of the four first floor bedrooms is en suite, there’s off-street parking, and the rear garden slopes upward to a back boundary wall, with fences to the side, with a small storage shed, and a patio.

Meanwhile, also within the Maryborough scheme, the same selling agent Jeremy Murphy has a three-bed semi-d on offer.

No 78 Yewlands is about 100 sq ft smaller, also has an en suite master bedroom, has a large back garden and is guided at €365,000.

Decor levels are excellent and individual, with quality tiling, and the 2004-built 78 Yewlands also has a C2 BER

VERDICT: Likely to appeal to different home-hunting segments, there’s a €50k difference for an extra bedroom, and a c 100 sq ft differential in this duo.
