Fine home for the guide price

Church Hill, Passage West property with conservatory will need a good overhaul, but the price is under €160k for prospective buyer, Rose Martin reports

Fine home for the guide price

It’s been vacant for some time but No 43 Hillcrest on the top of Passage West’s Church Hill, (it’s all in the name), is a fine house for the guide price.

Granted, it will need a good overhaul, including upping the insulation level, but the bones are there for a fine home.

And No 43 is already under offer at €160,000, says Michael Piggott of Sherry FitzGerald Donovan Daly. He describes Hillcrest as a small development and says it’s nice, quiet and mature. Local amenities are good and the views from this harbourside hill are spectacular. The house is only a few minutes from Rochestown and Douglas and the South Ring Road, adds Piggott, and is easily accessible.

With a good, west-facing garden and mature boundary the house offers a good range of rooms. The ground floor includes a 15’ by 12’ living room with quality, granite fireplace and a 17’ by 10’ kitchen-dining room with a bank of units and separate utility room. Best of all, it has a good conservatory projecting into the garden.

Three of its five bedrooms are on the ground floor, including one en suite room.

VERDICT: A good buy at the money, but will need a few bob more. Good south Cork location too.
