AN old stone boundary wall, scything through a section of the c 80-strong development of detached, red-brick faced homes at Merrion Court, gives a certain ‘heft’ and groundedness to this pleasant estate, bookending the back garden too of No 44 in this Montenotte, Cork setting.

Up above the Middle Glanmire Road, via Leycester’s Lane and near St Christopher’s Park, Merrion Court’s a low profile, quiet cul de sac scheme built in the 1980s, with two green areas and resales are rare.

Estate agent Timothy Sullivan has No 44 new to market this month, guiding the well-kept c 1,400 sq ft home at €375,000.

The Price Register shows a 2012 sale at €235,000, two in 2013 at €295,000 and €300,000, while one further back in the slump years in 2010 has led the price charge, with a sale recorded at €330,000.

Clearly, the neighbours in and around the serried rows making up Merrion Court will be keenly watching the sale progress now of No 44 to see how their own homes may be valued.

Quite typical of the builds here, No 44 has one of its four first floor bedrooms en suite, and at ground are two reception rooms with fireplaces, a family room and a kitchen plus utility and guest WC.

VERDICT: Merrion Court is almost off the radar, and that’s how its residents like it.
