A well-built Ruden Homes semi-d at 15 Carrig Green, Carrignacurra in Carrigaline is also well-kept and decorated — its vendor is a painter.
The affordable home has a €190,000 AMV quoted by Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing, who says it’s very well located, the estate is well-regarded, it’s on the city side to boot for easy commuting, and faces a green.
VERDICT: A walk-in job.
Not a bad buy at all at the money — think €195,000 — is the detached three-bed home 35 Woodlands, a cul de sac development ranged around a green on the edge of West Cork’s Clonakilty. Recently upgraded and decorated, No 35’s for sale with agent Martin Kelleher who says it has good outside and inside space, nice features and a good living room with walnut floor and fireplace, plus new kitchen.
VERDICT: An affordable, detached, easy keep Clon home.
Pitched at first-time buyers, or even any investors out there (it could rent for €750 monthly), is No 10, Hermitage Grove, in Rushbrook near Cobh. The modern three-bed semi is well-decorated with all the essentials in place, says agent Johanna Murphy.
VERDICT: Nice flow of space from front to back, and on to the rear patio.
