Trading up: Gaggin, West Cork €360,000

You wouldn’t want to be paying attention to speed limit signs when re-joining the main Bandon-Clonakilty road at hideaway Gaggin — because one of them could get you killed.

Gaggin’s a pretty stretch of back road parallel to the N71 at the old Clonakilty rail junction setting, with a dozen or so homes stretched along its narrow strip of country lane. And, having carefully negotiated its western-most end there’s an encouraging 100km\\h speed sign oh, about 50m to 100m before the quite blind junction.

Daft, if not potentially lethal.

However, that’s a diversion from this market offer at Ardlui, Gaggin, with Bandon agent Roy Lee, who seeks offers of €360,000 for this just-completed 2,500 sq ft high-quality four-bed detached home, on a 0.43-acre site

The site’s now greened in, however, inside there are one or two tasks left to do for new owners, such as picking a kitchen/plus appliances and fireplace(s), as well as a few built-ins.

Ardlui is floored out, painted and completed to beyond the usual “builder’s finish” offer.

It comes with three reception rooms, utility, attic access and four beds, with two en suites and the main bedroom has a dressing area too. Solar panels have been fitted, there’s central heating, a side conservatory and decent B2 energy rating.

VERDICT: Very little left to finish.
