Starter home: Silversprings, Cork City, €220,000

Size: 92 sq m (990 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 2


THIS attractive three-bed first floor apartment at 46 Ashmount Mews in Silversprings will be open for a public viewing at 3pm today.

Describing it as a spacious owner-occupied property, which has been tastefully decorated, selling agents Sherry FitzGerald are expecting a good attendance.

Guiding at €220,000, it’s a 2005-built first-floor apartment which has 990 sq ft of living space which makes it roughly the same size as an average three-bed semi.

Open plan accommodation includes an 18ft-long living room with oak flooring, windows on two sides and a marble and timber fireplace with a gas fire.

An archway leads through to a dining area which has views of the river estuary below.

Off this is a separate galley-style kitchen with white Shaker units and integrated appliances.

Off the hallway at the front of the apartment there is a bathroom and three bedrooms.

The largest bedroom has been decorated in blue and yellow and has Sliderobes and an en suite.

There’s a second double bedroom with built-in wardrobes and a smaller one which is currently being used as a den.

Situated in a cul de sac in a large mixed development, the apartment has designated parking.

Auctioneer Ann O’Mahony says the O’Brien & O’Flynn built development is a popular one and is within a 15 minute drive from the city centre.

She says three-bed apartments are quite unusual and is expecting viewings from first time buyers who want something a little larger than the typical two bed property of this type.

VERDICT: a walk-in apartment
