Trading Up: Moneygourney, Cork  €295,000

Over the past couple of years, sales here have gone from a low of €115,000 to the early €300,000s, and most have hovered in the mid to high €200,000s, re-gaining in value steadily over the past four years of price stabilisation and recovery.

In 2015, No 99 shows up as selling for €285,000,No 94 made €295,000, and that’s the price now sought for No 93 next door, by estate agents Casey & Kingston.

Fort Hill, with over 100 modern builds at Moneygourney near Garryduff in Rochestown/off Maryborough Hill, dates to the early 2000s, and was developed by West Cork-based Murnane and O’Shea, and is popular, and resales are now quite swift.

No 93’s quite typical of the flat-dormer topped three-bed semi-d model here, with front sitting room, rear kitchen/diner, back hall/utility and guest WC all at ground level.

Up above, there are three bedrooms with one en suite, and a main family washroom.

It’s modern, and tidy, and needs little other than to move in, say the agents, adding that it’s close to a vast range of services locally and in Douglas village, and has easy access to the ring road too.

VERDICT: All the essentials in place, for just under €300k.
