Trading up: Kinsale Road, Cork City, €215,000

The address is given as No 51 Slieve Mish Park, and this well-located three-bed semi-d proudly carries the name Regina on its name plate. But, it will need lots of TLC to get it up to a suitably regal state.
Trading up: Kinsale Road, Cork City, €215,000

Weighing in at about 1,200 sq ft is this basic order home, with attached garage, within a cul de sac estate with houses (mostly pairings of semi-ds dating to the mid-1900s) ranged around a central block.

Slieve Mish is a lovely, quiet park off the Kinsale Road near an Aldi, Turners Cross, Musgrave Park and the new drive-thru McDonalds, with the South City Ring Road a two-minute drive away. Also due to open up any month now is the major public park developed across the Link Road.

Regina, aka No 51 Slieve Mish, is new to market as a refurb offer with estate agent Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing, who guides at what seems like a very achievable €215,000, but the extra spending necessary will in all likelihood bring a total budget up closer to the €300,000 sum — or even higher, if new owners go the extension route.

It has a southerly aspect in front, an attached garage suitable for conversion, and modest-sized, tapering back garden: “when upgrades are completed, this should make a superb family home,” says Mr Olden.

VERDICT: Accessible southside location.

Size: 110 sq m (1,200sq ft)
