GONE on open viewing today, for a small window at 10-10.30am, is the neat and tidy two-bed home at 6 Rowan Hill, a mellow-looking brick-faced home in the Mount Oval Village development in Cork’s Rochestown.

It’s an end-terrace home, by a cul de sac section, and it has the advantage of a larger front garden than many of it comparable neighbours have thanks to its corner setting. 

No 6’s vendor is now living outside of Cork and it’s come to market with Florence Gabriel of Sherry FitzGerald who guides the 760 sq ft two-storey build at €245,000. 

The Rowan Hill section has a mix of apartments, duplexes, detacheds and townhouses and the Price Register shows a range of sales over the past five years, from €145,000 to €525,000 depending on type.

No 6 is smart and tidy, with kitchen to the front with a window overlooking the small railed, walled, lawned and paved front garden, and, behind, the 15’x12’ living room has an electric fireplace, window and a single, glazed door to the fully walled-in back garden. 

No 6 has a guest WC, and overhead is one more bathroom, and two double bedrooms with built-ins.

Now, it just needs a new owner to move right in and put an individual mark on their purchase, says Ms Gabriel.
