January sales at East Ferry, East Cork spot

"You won’t get a better bargain in the January sales in Penneys,” quips Midleton estate agent James Colbert, about this family home house Naoimh Pádraig, on a half-acre out by East Cork’s East Ferry, which he guides as a New Year offer at €380,000.

Set well back from the water that’s usually a selling point in propery location terms, this Barnard West brick bungalow, close to the N25, is in smart order, one of just four homes along a private cul de sac road, with electric gates and garage. 

It has four bedrooms, two living rooms, one with solid fuel stove, and a very attractive kitchen with warm, woody air.

VERDICT: Smart mover.
