Good value in popular suburb

GOOD value for Cork’s Rochestown Road, especially considering this detached house has five bedrooms — that’s the pitch of Terence O’Leary of Property Partners O’Mahony Walsh for 33 Newlyn Vale on the Rochestown Road.

The house is just minutes from Douglas and its allures and is close to the slip road to the South Link at Rochestown.

It’s on the market at €570,000 and offers a trading up opportunity to buyers in the Douglas area, something for which there is plenty of demand.

And it’s detached, which makes it all the more attractive, with gates at two sides and parking for up to three cars. At the back, there’s a private, mature garden with high walls and a west-facing patio.

Inside, the ground floor offers the usual rooms you’d find at this level, along with a converted garage. So it has a lounge, family room, kitchen, playroom, utility and guest WC.

Upstairs, the master bedroom is en suite and there are two double bedrooms, a single and a box room, which doubles as a study. Also included is a main bathroom with shower.

Gas heating is installed but in these times the fact it also has a back boiler is a handy extra. It could perhaps be replaced with a pellet stove and while this won’t make the house future-proof, it may make it ‘outrageous gas price hike-proof’.
