Weigh up your buying options with The Anchorage

THE possible buying net is widely cast at the house The Anchorage on Cork’s Church Road - across the road from the Rockies hurling club.

The detached, late 1980s house is one of three similar houses in the Willowbank residential development which front on to Church Road in the Blackrock suburb: a recent sale of a three bed semi (2, The Avenue, fronting the Rockfield scheme,) saw a very strong €405,000 paid with KMS, with some bidders keener on the roadside setting than within the estate - and prepared to pay for the difference.

James Coughlan has floated Anchorage on the market seeking over €460,000, and offers have already sailed past the €480,000 mark, with €500,000 now on the horizon.

Simply put, it is a very good house, well tended and decorated in a location prized by traders up, and those keen to get back into a mature settled suburb.

Extended to the side and behind (a favourable west-facing back garden) with a well-matched add-on, it has extremely well-finished living areas, with a fine large (19’ by 15’) kitchen and dining room, with creamy ceramic tiled floor and a matching feel to the large utility room.

French doors to the garden here add to the quality of brightness of this space.

Other rooms include a lounge with maple floor and gas insert fireplace, an 18’ by 10’ family room, and the detached house has four bedrooms, with one described as an optional study.
