Lovely proximate sea views come with an old world bungalow/cottage in East Cork’s Glenawilling, by Knockadoon and Ballymacoda.

The attractive property, guided at €130,00 by CCM in Midleton, has outbuildings on either side and would be handy for someone who wants to work from home, operate a craft business or the like.

Single-storey, it has high wood-sheeted ceilings, sitting room, kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms.

VERDICT: Oh we do like to be beside the seaside

With its €70,000 guide price, most first-time buyers should have a few quid left over for a bit of extra spending on Cork’s 8 Roches Terrace — but it won’t swallow cash at the same time.

The mid-terraced home, on the market with Johanna Murphy, has good basics like roof, double glazing and heating, so it’s more of a decorative overhaul.

Ms Murphy says it’s in a nice area, near town, with harbour views from upstairs.

Roches Terrace is in a cul de sac, with parking, and No 8 has a hall, sitting room with fireplace, kitchen, bathroom in the annexe, and two first floor bedrooms.

VERDICT: Walking distance to services and shops from this lofty perch.
