Trading up: Mount Oval, Rochestown €310,000

Likely to tick boxes for investors, first time buyers and traders down, the well-kept former investment property is guided at €310,00 by Michael O’Donovan of Savills.

Size: 100sq m (1,080sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 3 


THERE’s a good, sunny and enclosed back garden plus patio to the back of 118 Ardkeale, an end terrace three-bed townhouse in the extensive O’Flynn Construction Mount Oval development in Cork’s Rochestown.

Plusses are a setting in a cul de sac, side access to the back garden, and parking available right in front of the two-storey house.

Inside it has oak floors in its hall, and two reception rooms, front living and rear dining off a kitchen annexe.

There’s sliding door access to the back patio from the dining room, and the front living room has double, part-glazed doors to the hall, so the interior is nice and bright, Mr O’Donovan adds.

There’s almost 1,100 sq ft in all, and there’s a ground floor guest WC, and one of the three bedrooms is en suite, and the main bathroom has a bath with shower, so all the requisites are in place

There’s a shed in the back garden, which is walled in and lawned and just needs colourful planting, and it’s all close to the shops.

VERDICT: Ready to go
