Cute as a cottage with a garden for same price as apartment

This two-bed in Co Cork has much to appeal and a good turnout is expected for open viewing day today, writes Trish Dromey

Ovens, Co Cork - Price: €230,000

  • Size: 83sq m (900sq ft)
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathrooms: 2
  • BER: C1

One of a very small number of two bed detached properties in its estate, No 1 Westway in Ovens is likely to attract the attention of young couples, single people and those who want a home with a ground floor bedroom.

“It’s guiding at €230,000 which is around what you would pay for an apartment in Ballincollig — but for this you are getting a detached home with a garden,” says auctioneer Brendan Bowe.

Located in Grange Manor, approximately 5km from Ballincollig, it was built in the early 2000s and has close to 900sq ft of living space.

Accommodation includes a kitchen dining living area which has a kitchen at the front with cream fitted units and appliances as well as a tiled living/dining space with a solid fuel stove and sliding patio doors at the rear. At this level there’s also a guest WC and a timber floored bedroom.

The upstairs has a bathroom and a good sized master bedroom with timber floors, wardrobes with sliding doors, a Velux window as well as circular one on the gable end. Fitted with gas heating, the property has a C1 BER.

To the front there’s a parking area, and at the side and rear, there’s a garden enclosed by high walls which has a patio and a lawn.

Mr Bowe expects a good turnout at an open viewing scheduled for today. “It’s detached, in turn key condition and it’s in a sought after residential development”.

The Property Price Register records that No 1 Westway previously sold for €219,500 in 2014.

Verdict: Around the same size as an apartment — but is cute like a cottage and has a garden
