Starter homes: Rushbrooke, Cobh €145,000

Sq m: 99 (1,064 sq ft)

There’s a handy 1,064 sq ft at 20 Oak Drive, in Cork Harbour’s Rushbrooke, but it’s the garden size that gives it extra edge.

Set inside Rushbrooke’s Chandler’s Way and Chandler’s Walk, near Cobh on Great Island, this modern three-bed semi-d at Oak Drive is on an oversized site, with stepped and banked levels behind, all walled and fenced in, and has a sloping front drive and lawn as well.

It has a good-sized living room and larger 19’ by 14’ back kitchen/dining room, and selling agent Jeremy Murphy & Associates guides at €145,000.

VERDICT: The garden’s shape and bank would allow some very attractive planting to make it extra homely.
