A great price and a great location

WHAT value for the money and the location – that’s according to auctioneer Brendan Bowe of the Innishannon, Co Cork, home 6 Mulberry View.

Carrying a €265,000 asking price, No 6 is a four-bed, 1,350 sq ft detached home on an elevated village site of a third of an acre, near the national school and the Catholic church – a perfect local pitch, says the agent.

Painted a pale yellow, the L-shaped bungalow has two reception rooms, one of its four bedrooms is en suite, and there’s a utility off the kitchen, plus the real added bonus, a 530 sq ft detached double garage.

No 6 now most likely needs some modernisation, but offers great scope for a family or a couple, in a good community location that’s only a short drive west of Cork city, says Mr Bowe.
