Moving on: Old suburbs still favoured

CORK’s older suburbs must be near bottoming out in terms of price drops — they have the benefit of not having much opposition being built around them anymore, and ease of access is always going to win out in these expensive commuting times.

New to market in Cork’s Wilton Gardens, near Dennehy’s Cross, is Padua, a very traditional mid-1900s three-bed semi-d in the western suburbs by CUH, near a green.

Agent Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing seeks offers around €295,000 for a home that will need updating, new heating, etc. It has two standard reception rooms with tiled fireplaces, kitchen with vinyl floor, a ground floor shower room and an attached garage, three overhead bedrooms, plus bathroom.

VERDICT: Great amenities all to hand.
