Trading up: Maryborough Hill, Cork €465,000

Size: 172 sq m (1,850 sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


That’s according to estate agent Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing, who guides this well-kept home at €465,000.

Set up in the O’Brien and O’Flynn Maryborough Woods development, it’s within a walk of Douglas village, hotel, shops, bars and golf club, he notes and is in one of the most successful schemes in hinterland with a wide housing and apartment mix (just along Carrs Hill across the road from Douglas Golf Club, some 52 acres at Castletreasure came to market this week, guiding €25m, and has scope for 450 badly-needed new homes in what will be a seven to 10-year roll-out development.)

Semi-detached No 6 Southwinds is a walk-in job, right now and Mr Olden describes the area as a prime residential location.

Off a tiled entrance hall is 17’ by 12’ sitting room, with bay window, wood floor and marble fireplace and to the back is a large, bright kitchen with granite worktops, breakfast island and adjacent dining section, with overhead Velux and French doors to a patio.

Up overhead are three wood-floored bedrooms, one with en suite and a main bathroom with Jacuzzi bath, and the next floor up has a master (or princess) suite that’s 26’ by 15’ with Juliette balcony window, dressing area and en suite, plus storage.

VERDICT: Well done and ready to go
