Trading up: Beaumont, Cork €330,000

You won’t have to look too far for extension suggestsions for the 1,000 sq ft three-bed semi-d called Barna — just look out the upstairs back windows at what some of the neighbours have done already — a bit like “here’s some we prepared earlier”.

Like many of Cork’s older inner suburbs, this Beaumont region is undergoing renewal, with most new buys given energy/insulation upgrades, and rear/side extensions. For sale for €330,000 with Sherry FitzGerald, Barna on Rosegreen Avenue is in good overall shape, dated but ripe for a make-over too: It has an attached garage and enough side width left for more build space — and the back garden is west-facing, overlooking some extended homes along Linden Avenue.

It has two reception rooms plus sun room, and two double bedrooms and a single bedroom overhead, with main bathroom. Windows are double glazed, heating is oil.

Barna, aka No 11 Rosegreen Avenue, is near both Upper Beaumont Drive, and quite close to Skehard Rd too for easy access to Mahon’s shops and offices, while just a few hundred yards away is a large public park by the old quarry with soccer pitch, and it is near to boys’ and girls’ national schools too.

The garden’s mature and lawned, and the front has been paved for parking.

VERDICT: Location and aspect made extension a likely runner for new occupants.
