It is guided at just €349,000, for a family home on pristine gardens with 2,350 sq ft inside, as well as a 350 sq ft detached garage, says agent Trevor O’Sullivan, associate director with Coldwell Banker, Cork.

The house, with a Ballybrack townland address, “has style and sophistication in abundance”, according to Mr O’Sullivan, on private tended gardens with south-facing patio terraces and pergola, and is an accessible trading-up home for buyers in a wide catchment, from Glanmire, Cork city, and Ballyvolane.

It’s a smart looking dormer, with wood-floored first floor bedrooms including one en suite bedroom, and there is scope for a fifth ground floor bedroom also, along with two reception rooms with period-style fireplaces, dining room, kitchen/breakfast with utility and guest WC, and sun room.

The attic is floored for storage and the garage is a very good size also, while the garden includes lawns, seating areas, shed and some feature planted beds.

VERDICT: Great space and gardens, to a well-kept standard, all for under €350,000.
