Thick end of the wedge in Ballinlough, Cork

Ballinlough, Cork €360,000

Size: 116 sq m (1,240 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

THERE’S a good wedge-shaped site coming with 13 Somerton Drive, currently a standard-format three-bed semi-d diagonally set, looking onto Cork’s Ballinlough Road, with just about every sort of amenity and facility on its doorstep.

A new listing with Paul O’Shea and Ann O’Mahony of Sherry Fitz, No 13’s guided at €360,000, so it’s very much in the ballpark figure for semi-ds in Ballinlough and surrounding suburbs.

(A similar vintage three-bed semi-d in cul de sac Ballincurrig off the Douglas Road, coincidentally also on a wedge or triangular site, went ‘sale agreed’ after its first week on the market mid-week, via Casey & Kingston, rising from an AMV of €330,000 to be snapped up at c €350,000).

No 13 Somerton Drive has two reception rooms, sunroom, plus kitchen/diner, utility and guest WC, and three overhead bedrooms, and main bathroom.

It also has an adjacent garage, lots of conversion/extension potential, a Stira stairs to the attic and a super suburban setting, at the corner of a niche park which also includes some very large detached modern build, one of which tipped the €1m mark last year.

VERDICT: Somerton living is easy
