Property Feature: Rochestown, Cork, €245,000

Quite original of it day and type, the 1980s-built three-bed semi-d at 25 Manor Orchard, is finding favour with family home hunters — but will need further spending down the line.

Weighing in at 1,000 sq ft, it’s in the Thornbury View McInerney scheme in Cork’s Rochestown off Coach Hill, and agent John Barry of Frank V Murphy & Co seeks offers about the €240,000 level, and says it has been very well kept.

Single glazing, in original wood frames, contributes to the lowly E1 BER level, so new owners might want to replace, and also upgrade insulation standards too.

It has gas central heating, and side extension/conversion, so there are two reception roms, plus kitchen/diner that’s 25’ deep, but only around 8’ wide. Again, there’s no en suite, or guest bathroom, so they might figure in future extension plans.

VERDICT: Going to sell on location alone, and worth any extra upgrades too.
