Starter home: Crosshaven, Co Cork €195,000

Affordable by the seaside is this semi detached cottage at 13 Castlepoint Village in Crosshaven.

Guiding at €195,000, it’s a two- or three-bedroomed property which is part of an unusually designed cul-de-sac development of 22 houses located within a 10-minute walk from the local Centra supermarket and the harbour.

According to Trevor O’Sullivan of Coldwell Banker Carlton Estates the 1,000 sq ft property is mostly timber floored and has character.

There’s a kitchen/living area with fitted units, two ground floor bedrooms and a bathroom, as well as an attic bedroom.

Fitted with double glazed windows it has electric heating which will probably require updating.

Verdict: Quirky by the sea.
