Trading up: Bishopstown, Cork €375,000

Set within a short, cul de sac run of The Rise, in Cork’s Bishopstown are four similar-styled houses at the boundary with an undeveloped section of field, and this is where No 4A The Rise, has come to market.

Trading up: Bishopstown, Cork €375,000

Size: 124 sq m (1,334sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 4 


Listed with Michael O’Donoghue of REA O’Donoghue Clarke, it’s a decent sized (1,334 sq ft) four-bed semi, with one of its bedrooms en suite, and it is guided on launch at €375,000.

Two doors away, the wholly upgraded and extended Cherrygrove or No 6 The Rise, a different house style, is on the market with Marsh Auctioneers guiding €470,000, in walk-in order.

No 4A is a bit on the dated side internally, but has a good aspect to its back garden and is just by the first entrance to The Rise, a popular estate at the start of the Waterfall Road by the Bishopstown roundabout junction with the N40.

Its two reception rooms are well-sized, the front one is 16’ by 15’ with a bay window and open fireplaces, and the dining room behind measures 16’ by 12’ with fireplace with back boiler, and patio door to a rear garden with central lawn and gravel paths.

South-facing to the back, No 4 has oil central heating, single glazed teak window, and a D1 BER.

VERDICT: A good price entry point to The Rise.
