Trading up: Boreenmanna Road, Cork €215,000

There’s a swathe of likely bidders/buyers for a place like 20 Ashton Lodge — estate agent Glenn O’Connor of DNG Creedon is likely to see them all in his viewings at this three-bed duplex.
Trading up: Boreenmanna Road, Cork €215,000

Size: 102 sq m (1,100sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 3 


Built and sold off in a low-key fashion originally by McInerneys back around the early 2000s (as was an adjacent apartment development by Hegartys), Ashton Lodge initially had its major appeal to investors, but ownership now will broaden as the inner suburbs continue to grow in popularity and appeal.

Add in easy access to the city centre, suburban facilities, and to office jobs in Mahon’s City Gate, and, really No 20 will pop up on many buyers’ radars.

The two-storey/duplex is reached up a flight of external steps, and has 1,100 sq ft within, so it’s more townhouse-sized than your typical apartment: “it’s extremely spacious,” according to the DNG selling agent, who reports early pre-viewing interest.

Inside, it has a hall and open plan living/dining/kitchen with a paving slab-flagged balcony to the rear as its outdoor space, this level also has a bedroom and bathroom, and overhead are two further bedrooms plus second bathroom.

It comes with two car parking spaces, and asking price is €215,000.

VERDICT: One for investors to eye up all over again, given its rental income potential
