Trading up: MODEL FARM ROAD, CORK €365,000

THE arrival of Ardcarrig for sale is bringing attention from couples and families looking to trade in to a mature Cork suburb near schools, colleges service, plus several major employment centres and hospitals.

At the city end of the Model Farm Road in Cork city, it’s a 1930s semi-detached home with a great hidden bonus - the back garden seems to go on for ever, thanks to a site depth of 220’.

Ardcarrig is for sale with Frank V Murphy & Co, who seek €365,000 and who have it under offer already over the €325,000 mark, and going down well with viewers living further afield.

The rear reception, meanwhile has French doors to the back garden and patio, and each living space has a fireplace. The house will need some modernising and currently there’s a kitchenette and breakfast area as well, with three overhead bedrooms and a main bathroom, with a ground floor guest WC already provided.
