Decide what side of the city you want to live on and pick a house

TWO four-bed houses, on opposite sides of the city are on the market at the moment at roughly the same guide price.

Number 9 Hollymount Estate is a detached, four-bed on the old Blarney Road and close to the new Mile Stream development on the Shanakiel side of this hilltop location.

Terence O’Leary of Murray Brown is looking for offers in the region of €425,000 for the property, which would suit traders-up, he says.

It’s in very good condition internally and comes with three reception rooms and a modern kitchen/dining room.

The master bedroom is ensuite and the three remaining rooms are doubles and share a bathroom. Gardens are good and have a southerly aspect with views over the city.

Having sold three houses in Avondale Park already, auctioneer Joe Gavin of James G Coughlan & Co is going for number four.

He’s selling an extended semi at number 17 in the Ballintemple estate for offers in the region of €430,000.

The property will need some renovation, he says, although it’s generally in good condition.

The extension at the side could be prettied up with a new roof and the conversion of the garage would offer more room internally.

As it stands now, the house comes with a living room, dining room, conservatory, shower room and kitchen with four bedrooms and a bathroom overhead.

In a very convenient location, the property is a short drive to the city.
