Trading up: Grange, Cork, €270,000

THERE’s a good base to work with at the detached home 10, Grange Erin.

Trading up: Grange, Cork, €270,000

It already has over 1,300 sq ft of accommodation, one of its three bedrooms is en suite, there’s a good flow of living areas with a basic glass lean-to room or conservatory add on, and the location’s good, too.

Grange Erin is close to Cork’s Douglas village, off the Grange Road and it’s toward the end of the cul de sac, says selling agent Florence Gabriel, of Sherry FitzGerald. She guides at €270,000 and says it’s a perfect buy for a first timer, or for anyone looking for an easily accessed detached home.

No 10 has a front reception room with open fireplace, while solid double doors lead to a rear dining room.From here, there’s also access to the conservatory with lovely unobstructed views of the back garden, which is a feature of the property.

No 10 comes with a galley-style kitchen, plus there’s a plumbed utility room and a guest WC, while overhead one of the three bedrooms has a shower en suite. The property’s in reasonable overall condition, and Ms Gabriel reckons “it’s now ready for its new owners to stamp their mark on it”.

It has single glazing, and oil heating, and the BER’s an E1, so jobs for the next occupants may be to increase insulation standards and add renewable energy sources.

VERDICT: Prime for upgrades.
