Quiet setting will add to appeal

NICELY freshened up inside and out is the well-sited No 10 Marieville, in at the end of a cul de sac park off Cork’s lower Pouladuff Road.

The three-bed semi-detached home, owner-occupied by a young family who are now set to trade-up, has been re-insulated, painted, has new double glazed windows in wood effect pvc, plus a new kitchen and bathroom suite, enthuses estate agent Mark Gosling of Behan Irwin Gosling.

While Mr Gosling says it may appeal to investors because it’s close to UCC and the ring road, things like off-street parking for a couple of cars in a quiet setting and a quite long south-facing back garden which is walled and fenced, in will add to the appeal to first-time buyers.

No 10 Marieville has a living room with cast iron fireplace, compact kitchen, ground floor main bathroom and three overhead bedrooms, all in smart order.

The decent-sized back garden has a block-built shed, handily plumbed as a utility.

VERDICT: A walk-in job.
