Trading up: Montenotte, Cork, €285,000

It’s already called Holmleigh, and now a bit more extra spending on this St Christopher’s Avenue, Cork City, home could make it all the more homely too.

Trading up: Montenotte, Cork, €285,000

Hitting the market just before Christmas Day, this is a slightly extended three-bed semi-d, dating to the mid 1900s, and priced at €285,000 by agents Timothy Sullivan Associates.

Holmleigh, and its immediate next door neighbour or ‘other half’, have a different look, done in dash and render, and both have converted what would have been original attached garages.

Now, No 4 has a playroom, next to a ground-floor guest WC with shower, and the linked sitting/dining room is 12’ by 23’ with bay window to the front and it also has a gas fireplace.

The kitchen was replaced in recent years, and has white units and a mosaic-style splashback: In all the kitchen/breakfast room is a decent 11’ by 23.’

Overhead are three bedroms plus family bathroom, the house has gas central heating and there’s side access to a mature back garden, with shed. Holmleigh is set in a short run of cul-de-sac pairs of semis, between the Middle Glanmire Road and the Old Youghal Road.

VERDICT: Excellent base and basis for a bit of upgrading.
