Trading up: Ballard, Cobh €360,000

It’s going to be all go over the next few months in the distant vistas from this Ballard, Cork home — it has views back to Fota Island, which is set to host golf ’s Irish Open once later this summer, thanks to new ownership at the Fota Resort.

The views from the 1,600 sq ft home include much of wooded Fota, and lots of the estuary at the back of Great Island, says estate agent Johanna Murphy, who guides this property at €360,000

The dormer home has two bedrooms at ground level and two more upstairs, with a good mix of bathrooms / shower rooms between them.

The house itself is in very good condition, with feature spiral staircase and one bedroom has a balcony Ms Murphy notes, plus there’s a conservatory. But, for the right owner, the real bonus is the size of the site, which is largely walled in, and has a good mix of outbuildings, plus a log cabin with power, water supply and an extensive yard.

The house has a new gas heating system with three zones.

“This is a superb property, and would be ideal for someone wanting to run a business from home with its separate yard,” says the selling agent.

VERDICT: Ideal for home-workers, hobbyists, pet owners, and families.
