Trading up: Glandore, Cork €345,000

Glandore’s stylish five-bed bungalow called Montbretia, after the naturalised West Cork plant, is one of the dozens of Irish properties being taken to the Sherry FitzGerald London Property Fair at this month’s end.

The 2,400 sq ft home in smart internal order, and on a 0.75 acre site, carries a guide price of €345,000 with Clonakilty agent Ray O’Neill who goes to London with high sales hopes for some of his coastal and rural listings. After all, he secured a €1m-plus UK buyer from last year’s event for Seaclusion, a contemporary build above Rosscarbery and the Warren Strand.

This house is within a short walk of beauty spot and sailing base Glandore, and has an above average spec, says Mr O’Neill, with oil-fired underfloor heating, pressurised water system, good en suite master bedroom at ground level with walk-in robes, and a sun-room/ living space off the dining room, linked by twin arches, with another arch (plus serving-hatch/counter) linking to the kitchen.

There’s also an attached 21’ by 14’ garage with conversion potential and overhead are four beds, one over the garage, a shower room and a family bathroom.

VERDICT: A pretty affordable buy in chi-chi Glandore, which holds West Cork’s most recent multi-million euro sales records.
