Trading up: Glounthaune, Cork €375,000

Homes here at this Glounthaune hillside development date back to the 1970s and 1980s, and after the recent investment the circa 40-year old 1,700 sq ft No 21 is in excellent condition, assures agent Kevin Barry.

Under offer at €350,000, he guides this four-bed home at €375,000, noting that it has two of its four beds with en suite bathrooms, and adds that the main living rooms have Cork harbour views thanks to the elevated setting - hence, the ‘Highlands’ in the address.

The main living area, about 16’ square, has floor-to-ceiling windows for sunny views, there’s a garage ripe for conversion and the house has had insulation upgrades, new electrics plus intercom access, new doors and flooring, new kitchen and re-done bathrooms, plus there’s a new zoned heating system, all contributing to a much improved C1 BER rating.

No 21’s on a quarter acre site, faces a green, is in excellent condition and is within a walk of Glounthaune’s services, rail station, a short commute by road or rail from Cork city, adds Mr Barry.

The last sales at the Highlands have ranged from €350,000 to €470,000.

VERDICT: Excellent work.
