There’s been loads of work done to this three-bed suburban Cork home called Killona, everything, in fact bar an extension.
Hiting the market in an older area of inner Douglas, at Browningstown West is this c 1,000 sq ft semi-d, with a good utility room set up in a garage conversion, which adds some handy, yet untallied square feet to the usefulness of this upgraded property.
Plus, beyond the utility is a good, solid shed with sturdy twin doors, used for keeping dogs warm and dry, so for other home hunters looking for storage and utiilty spaces, No 34 Browningstown West, aka Kilona, may be well worth a look.
It’s guided at €425,000 by estate agent Michael McKenna, who says it has solar panels for water heating, has been rewired, replumbed, new gas-fired central heating boiler and rads (the BER’s a C3), and walls and attic have upgraded insulation also.
Internal layout is, nonetheless, quite traditional, with a reception room to the front with stove, the one behind has patio access via double doors to an east facing back garden; the relatively compact kitchen is galley style and tidy, and the hall floor is tiled, and bathroms have been retiled also.
Overhead are three bedrooms, and there’s off-street parking. Good primary and seconday schools are within an easy walk.
VERDICT: A clean buy.
