Rochestown, Cork, €425,000

There’s an important traffic pivot point just down the road from Rochestown Rise, and it pretty much puts the entire of Cork city’s network of access routes on the radar for its residents.

  • Bedrooms: 4

  • BER: C3

Set close to the Rochestown Road roundabout by the church and the south city ring road which also speeds access to the Jack Lynch Tunnel, ‘Rise’ houses date to the 1970s and 1980s.

There’s a mix of house types and sizes within Rochestown Rise (including dormer style homes) where No 37 has just come to market, with a €425,000 guide.

It’s detached, full two-storey with just over 1,400 sq ft, has a large front to back living room that’s 23’ by almost 11’, and has gardens front and back, plus four bedrooms with one en suite.

Selling agent Brian Olden of Cohalan Downing Associates says it’s in excellent condition, is in a well-established residential setting and has views from the front down over a green area to the waters of Lough Mahon and the Douglas estuary.

Separate to the main living room, there’s a play room, office, kitchen/diner with wood, Shaker-style units and Bosch and Neff appliances, plus a utility with guest WC alongside.

The first floor has four bedrooms, none too large, and in fact the en suite master bedroom isn’t actually the largest room, at just 10’ 6” square.

Within a walk of Douglas village along the stretch of the Rochestown Road by the hotel, the early 1980s’ built No 37 Rochestown Rise had its insulation levels upgraded in 2011, also got a new kitchen, and has gas central heating, with a C3 BER.

The Price Register shows a wide divergence in prices with a Rochestown Rise address, going from sub-€300k sums in recent years to the €435,000 reported in a 2014 sale for the nearby No 35, and €425,000 last year for No 20.


Appears well-priced for a four-bed detached in the vicinity.
