This house is a good fit for families, as it’s opposite a large green, and also has appeal for traders down given its layout and easy maintenance.

Trading up: Blarney, Cork €305,000

Size: 140sq m (1,500sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 

BER: Pending

Now that property prices have risen up off the low floor they fell to during the slump, there aren’t too many modern, sizeable four-bed detached homes you can get in popular locations around Cork city and commuter belt for €300k or so, hence No 15 Ard Dara View near Blarney’s worth taking a look at.

The bungalow, with sunny rear extension with feature stove, is for sale with agent Trevor O’Sullivan of Coldwell Banker who guides it on launch at €305,000, and it’s in excellent condition, with easily maintained grounds.

There’s a brick-paved front garden for off-street parking, while behind is paved, with seasonal roses ringed around the perimeter in raised, walled beds.

Internally, No 15 has an attractive wood-floored front reception room, central oak-floored hall, two of its four bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, and the kitchen has quality, lacquered walnut worktops, with access to the bright, high-ceilinged sun room addition.

Location is just off the N20/Station Road, within a walk of Blarney and the 215 orbital bus route is to hand, linking back to the city and Mahon’s shops and offices ‘at the other end of the line.’

VERDICT: A good fit for families, as it’s opposite a large green, and also has appeal for traders down given its layout and easy maintenance.
