THERE’S nearly 1,650 sq ft of living space, with four bedrooms, on offer with 12, Bishopscourt Green, in Cork city’s western suburbs.

Estate agent Michael O’Donoghue of O’Donoghue Clarke is selling the solid semi-d, with twin reception rooms and a sun-room behind, and seeks offers about €475,000 for the property.

He highly rates the mature and convenient location, the space inside and out, with brick paving front and back, and, with a side annex, there’s extra space and scope for further growth and alterations for a family buyer, he adds.

No 12 has a E1 BER rating.

SET inside in a cul de sac with the Gate Lodge development on Cork’s Castle Road is No 26, a new market arrival with a €365,000 asking price.

The four-bed (one en suite), end of terrace house, built in the 1990s O’Brien and O’Flynn development, is in good overall condition, and has been privately owned, says Kevin O’Sullivan of Property Team O’Sullivan.

With its brick facade, and gas heating, it has about 1,200 sq ft of space, with attractive back gardens and off-street parking in front, and is close to amenity walks and services in Blackrock village.
