Bargain buy in western suburbs

NO 9 RICHMOND, part of the Elmvale estate in Wilton, Cork is a bit of a bargain when you consider the house’s detached nature and proximity to CUH.

And it has four bedrooms, which will attract investors and trader-uppers alike.

The house is on the market at €350,000 through Joe Gavin of James G Coughlan and Associates and while it needs some modernisation, is a good bet, he says.

It comes with a living room, dining room and kitchen with the potential to convert the attached garage.

Overhead are four bedrooms and a main bathroom and the house has a south-facing back garden.

* A FIVE BEDROOMED house at 2 Danford Close in Dungarvan offers 1,650 square feet of living accommodation to prospective buyers.

The house has easy access to the N25, say Sherry FitzGerald Reynolds and is on the market at a guide in excess of €400,000.

It comes with a smashing kitchen, a double-sized lounge, dining room, an office, and five bedrooms with one en suite room and two bathrooms.

Located in the Southways scheme in Dungarvan, the property also has plenty of parking to the front.

* IN DOOLIN, a holiday home buy would make a shrewd investment, as it comes with Section 23 allowances.On the market at €380,000 (VAT is extra but deductible), the detached, 110 sq metre property is in the middle of Doolin village.

According to Sherry FitzGerald Hussey Madden, the house has a guaranteed rental income of €8,000 per annum and has topped the €11,000 mark in rental last year. Fully furnished by an interior designer, the property is being sold as is and comprises two double bedrooms, a main bathroom and open plan kitchen/ diner with separate living room.
