Elegant two-bed apartment sitting pretty in mature gated development

IT’s the most understated of developments on an estuarine strip at Rochestown in Co Cork, but Ronayne’s Court is secure and mature.

In fact, it has aged well, which, in the world of apartment developments, really is something of an achievement.

And while this scheme wasn’t cutting edge to begin with, the low-key approach has stood the test of time.

A gated development on the Rochestown Road, you don’t get the full effect of the location until you park at the rear, where there’s water and green fields in the viewfinder, despite being in a built-up area.

Units are high on security and low on density so no 27 Ronayne’s Court, a two-bed recently on the market, shares access with only one other apartment on its floor and six in total in the block.

This property has a quirky layout, but a good aspect, with a south-western balcony off the kitchen, (shaded by tall bamboo), and a south-easterly aspect to the main living room.

Then, there are two double bedrooms, with one en suite and a main bathroom off the hallway, along with good closet space.

Simply laid out and with plenty of built-ins, this isn’t a bad buy at €260,000 — it’s also in turnkey condition. Billy Casey of Casey and Kingston auctioneers is handling the sale of no 27 Ronayne’s Court.
