Trading up: Montenotte, Cork €355,000

It’s only been a few years since No 26 Tracton Avenue was last up for sale, but this time around, it’s quite a different proposition.

Trading up: Montenotte, Cork €355,000

Size: 153sq m (1,650 sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 4 


The current owners of this good-sized four-bed semi-d in Cork’s Montenotte bought it in 2014, and it shows on the Price Register at €242,500.

They did much of the sort of stuff new owners tackle when buying a home that’s decades old (it was built in 1977), and so they upgraded insulation, with beads pumped in the cavity, they put in a new kitchen, and new floors, and they re-plumbed and rewired, and there’s now a dual heating system too, solid fuel in an integrated stove and gas.

And, having done the dirty work and the graft, they are on the move once more.

Today, No 26 Tracton Avenue is price-guided at €355,000 by agent Jeremy Murphy, who also sold the upgraded No 32 last year, when it fetched €355,000 .

He says the 1,650 sq ft No 26 has a bright, modern interior, with quality extras, and has four double bedrooms (no en suite) plus family bathroom upstairs, with shower over the bath.

Below, there’s a bright, large hall, a kitchen/dining room with cream gloss units with pale stone tops, twin Neff ovens and a tiled floor, as well as a living room to the front, with deep window and multi-fuel stove, a lounge to the side with patio door to the expanse of cobble lock front drive/garden, and guest WC.

Behind is a mature garden with stone walls, raised lawn, and paved patio.

VERDICT: Deserves traction
