Three-bed for first-timer

UNDER 1,000 sq ft, the kept-up-to-date Ballinlough, Cork semi-d, number 29, Somerton Park is priced at €265,000. The three-bed home is smartly presented, ready-to-move-into, and has its kitchen linking into the adjoining rear dining room to create a more airy feel.

Thanks to its good side access/drive, there’s scope for an extension to the side and possibly the rear, subject to planning permission, say agents, Sherry FitzGerald: (another, similar house in the park, closer to the Ballinlough Road, has a funky, architect-designed extension showing the potential).

Asking price for number 29 is €265,000, which puts it in the range of first-time buyers who want to buy into the older, inner suburbs close to a range of amenities, national schools, bus route or within a walk of the city centre.

Number 29 has gas heating, dark-framed double glazing, front reception room, three bedrooms and main bathroom, all in good decorative order, plenty of off-street parking and a west-facing back garden.
