Trading Up: Rochestown, Cork €495,000

Dormer houses in Cork’s Landsborough scheme, by Bride View Developments in the 1990s, were always steady re-sellers, popular with families looking to trade up, and with several house types and sizes within it to suit varied budgets.

Trading Up: Rochestown, Cork €495,000

But, there’s only been a couple of sales concluded here in the last few years — two in the ‘Gardens’ section, each making €385,000 in 2014, and 2013, so with a lot more strength, depth and bidding in the market this year, there should be good interest in No 9 Landsborough Avenue.

It carries a €495,000 guide via agent James Coughlan, who says the brick-faced home is in good condition and good to move into, and is on a 0.25 acre site — a real bonus, but right now it’s a garden that needs bit of extra landscaping and colour to maximise its scope.

There’s a good balance inside of living space and bedrooms, and one of those four beds is en suite.

Separately, it has three reception rooms off the oak-floored hall, a lounge with fireplace, a living room also has a fireplace, and there’s a TV room/den, plus kitchen/diner, along with utility and guest WC.

It’s short drive to Douglas and the ring road right now, but traffic changes for the Garryduff/Mount Oval area are mooted by Cork County Council, with local meetings this month to discuss their likely impact.

VERDICT: Popular trading up location, evidenced by the early offer received of €470,000.
