Trading up: Carrigaline, Co Cork €235,000

A good, clean three-bed semi-d has come to market at Laurel Avenue, in Carrigaline’s Ballea Woods, via agent Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing.

Trading up: Carrigaline, Co Cork €235,000

Size: 102sq m (1,100sq ft)

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 3 


He guides the 1,100 sq ft No 61 in Carrigaline, 14kms from Cork City, at €235,000, well under what a buyer would have to pay for something similar in a city suburb.

Mr Olden describes the commutable No 61 as an ideal family home, noting it’s a couple of minutes drive to the centre of Carrigaline, schools and amenities, and has a west-facing back garden, all fenced in and with a shed at its back boundary.

No 61 has a tiled hall, with guest WC alongside, with front reception 16’ by 11’ with bay widow and wood floor, and then French doors open to a back dining room/family room, running deep, into a single storey annex, and is almost 20’ long, and there’s garden access from here.

Overhead are three wood-floored bedrooms, with master en suite, and main family bathroom with shower.

There’s gas heating, double glazing, off-street parking and front and back gardens, with patio and shed.

VERDICT: It’s in walk-in order, anything of a similar size and price in the city would need extra spending and upgrades.
