Trading up: South Douglas Road, Cork, €435,000

Size: 122sq m (1,300sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


All that, and a strong location, too.

This brick-faced detached home is in a c 20-year-old development along the South Douglas Road, near the Cross Douglas Road and is guided at €435,000 by agent Trish Stokes of Lisney.

It’s one of the few detached homes here in Heatherton, which is one of the more recent developments along this accessible route from Cork city centre towards Douglas village , and there are slip roads to and from the city link and ring road network too, west and east, at Capwell and at Douglas by the gaelscoil.

One of the four bedrooms is en suite, and it has two interlinked reception rooms each with fireplaces, the one in front with a bay window, and there’s patio/garden access from the rear, along with kitchen/dining room that stretches to 18’ behind.

There are schools within an easy walk and shops, as well as sports amenities, swimming pool and public parks, with a major new park being completed 1km away by the link road.

VERDICT: A rare enough detached home in the area
