Trading up: Rochestown, Cork €475,000

Size: 150 sq m (1,690sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 3 

BER Rating: C1

For a buyer who wants to avoid the headache of gardening, but still wants to sit out and take the air, the three-bedroom apartment has two large balconies, one with views of the water while the others looks out on the gardens of the complex.

Guiding at €475,000, the property is on sale with Sherry FitzGerald who say this is an extremely attractive and comfortable home which is bright and light filled with a cleverly designed interior.

Accommodation includes a spacious living/dining room with double height ceiling, huge windows and access to the front balcony.

Off this is a contemporary kitchen with cream gloss units and integrated appliances.

The 1,690 sq ft third floor apartment also has a bathroom and three double bedrooms, including two with en suites.

Two of the bedrooms have doors leading out on to a balcony at the rear.

Built in the early 2000s, the Harty’s Quay is a stylish development located within four kilometres of Douglas village.

Auctioneer Ann O’Mahony says there are only a scattering of large penthouse apartments in the development and they rarely come on the market.

This one offers excellent space for a trade-up buyer and will certainly appeal to buyers trading down.

Verdict: Life at the top looks good.
