Back for sale after a summer 2015 launch with a different agent, and with a slight price drop too, is No 1 Carrigwell, a decent detached four-bed home of over 2,200 sq ft, by Carrignavar village, just 12kms north of Cork City.
Trading up: Carrignavar, Cork, €340,000

Size: 210 sq m (2,250sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


No 1 is guided at €340,000 by Stephen Clarke of REA O’Donoghue Clarke auctioneers, who says it has all the village amenities to hand and is just a short drive back to Cork, where the same price would in some suburbs only buy a three-bed semi of half the size here.

In the same upmarket estate of detacheds, No 17 (which featured here recently) has now gone sale agreed, at just over its €375,000 guide (via James G Coughlan Associates0, so underbidder interest can be expected now at No 1.

REA’s No 1 has rooms aplenty, as well as overall floor area, and lots of plumbing too: There’s a main family bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, an en suite master bedroom, a guest WC, and there’s even a multi-purpose chill-out recreation room to one side, complete with tiled floor, fireplace, and overhead TV, some gym equipment, reclining armchairs, a piano, and a large hot-tub.

Also at ground level is a more standard 18’ by 12’ living room, and an L-shaped kitchen/diner, at 21’ by 18’ at max measurement, with country-style units in timber to match some reclaimed brick, plus there’s a larder press and gas range cooker.

Overhead, No 1 has one of its four bedrooms en suite, and it has an alarm, oil heating, walled gardens with shed, and easy parking

VERDICT: Spacious
