Attractive site has room for expansion

THE house is probably worth less, as it stands, than the ground it stands on at Sunville, in or above Cork’s Glounthane.

Almost on the top of the ridge of the long shoulder of hills rolling eastwards out from Cork city, this three-bed roomed detached cottage or bungalow has a site to justify further expenditure.

And, at a guide price of €375,000, many buyers will see scope to add further value and space to Sunville which, despite some recent expenditure, still needs modernisation.

On the market with Terry Hayes of Remax Cork city and county, and on a site of one third of an acre, it has a lounge, kitchen/dining room, three bedrooms, bathroom and oil heating, giving about 1,100 sq ft of space in all. However, there’s loads of space to extend behind, or even possibly to go upwards subject to planning permission.
