Sq m: 100 (1,099 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 4

BER rating: Pending

Just on the outskirts of Dunmanway in West Cork is this four-bed bungalow on a good, rural site, with a €130,000 asking price via agent Henry O’Leary.

Woodview is all ground floor accommodation right now, a well-kept site with detached garage, and shed.

VERDICT: Convenient to the town, but private, about an hour from Cork city.

Tower, Cork €145,000

Sq m: 90 (980 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

BER rating: Pending

On a corner site, with a good back garden, No 28 Primrose Hill is a three-bed property in an estate of similar houses close to Tower village.

In fact, local amenities are on the doorstep and the property is a quick commute to Cork city. Property Partners O’Mahony Walsh are the selling agents.

VERDICT: With three bedrooms, this dormer house has an open plan layout on the ground floor and is ideal as a starter home or rental property.

Mayfield, Cork €130,000

Sq m: 78 (850 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

BER rating: Pending

Broadband: Yes

Near lots of services and amenities in Cork city’s Mayfield is 2, St. Joseph’s Park, a mid-terraced three bed with front and back gardens.

A good starter package at the price, it probably needs doing up a bit now, but this can be done in time, suggests auctioneer Terry Hayes of REMAX.

It fits in living room, kitchen, utility, guest WC, and three overhead beds plus main bathroom.

VERDICT: The gardens are a bonus.
