Why Dilkushi is so cushy ’n’ cool

DILKUSHI is a smashing property. Detached, with a lovely west facing garden, it’s tucked away in a secret location between Cork’s Magazine Road and Glasheen Road.

There are just six houses in Coolgarten Park, a little cul-de-sac off the equally unknown, Cooney’s Road and this property is number six.

As the last in the row, and facing south, it’s substantial rear garden basks in the evening sun, while the kitchen gets the best of morning light.

An executor’s sale, there is money to be spent here, but that could stretch from a paint, carpet and repair, €20,000 up to a €100,000 investment.

It’s very quiet and settled and this three-bed isn’t overlooked. There’s on-street, and off-street parking and UCC and the Bon Secours Hospital are just five minutes walk.

Auctioneer, Kevin Silke points out that there could be development potential here.

The house next door is two-storey.

There’s more than enough room to extend to the side and the rear. Attics have already been converted in neighbouring houses.

Kevin Silke is looking for a well-judged, €400,000 for this property and he’s already had plenty of viewings.
