TAKING the long view on sales, in more ways than one, is new homes specialist Lawrence Sweeney of Cork’s Savills office.
Size: 110 sq m (1,184 sq ft)
On the back of a string of recent sales of new stock in Maryborough Ridge, Douglas, and at Ashmount Mews, Silversprings, he swears you can see Tipperary from his latest offer.
He’s selling a penthouse apartment, 13 An Radharc, in the Douglas, Maryborough Woods development, and its extra elevation gives this top-floor whopper with two balconies a long-range prospect.
“You can see the Galtee mountains in Tipperary from here,” he observes of this lofty, fourth floor (with lift access) three-bed offer. It’s just shy of 1,200 sq ft inside with a further 600 sq ft outside on its two balconies.
One balcony is accessed from the main living area off a kitchen/diner, and the other is off the en suite master bedroom, and there are two other bedrooms on the penthouse’s other side, sharing a main bathroom.
No 13 is in Block A in a central position in the large O’Brien and O’Flynn development, and while it hasn’t been sold before, it was rented for several years as a corporate let. Now, it’s freshly painted up, and unfurnished, but has a range of appliances and and granite worktops.
Condition is excellent and it has gas heating, with 10-year structural guarantee.
Also sold recently at O’Brien and O’Flynn’s Ashmount Mews, Silversprings/Tivoli were a number of houses and apartments, at prices from €140,000 for a 849 sq ft three bed apartment, and 1,200 sq f townhouses for €220,0000/230,000.
In Maryborough Ridge, a number of terraced townhouses sold for €235,000, and the last unit, a furnished 900 sq ft townhouse, was under offer at €255,000.
VERDICT: The move is on.
