VIEWERS of 5 Woodlands at Courtmacsherry in West Cork can dispel the winter blues, with a burst of colour and, perhaps, a blast of sea air.

Just about as bright mauve as a house can get, the end of terrace three-bed property is located in a row of colourful houses looking out across the bay.

Guiding at €129,000, it’s for sale with Henry O’Leary auctioneers, in Clonakilty. He says the harbour views are excellent, the village location is desirable while the price is both realistic and affordable.

Describing the 1980s- built owner occupied house as being well maintained, he’s expecting interest from both investors and first-time buyers.

Offering 1,000 sq ft of living space, the property has a carpeted front living room with a fireplace as well as a kitchen- diner at the rear with timber panelled walls, a fireplace and pine units. 

Upstairs there’s a bathroom and three bedrooms including one at the front with timber flooring and bay views.

The house has back boiler heating, double glazed windows and D2 energy rating. It has a small garden area with plants at the front and a yard at the rear.

The row of houses is set back from the road at the front by a green area and has a communal parking area at the side.

“It’s within a few minutes walk from the new co-op store and pubs in the village and is just a little over a 45-minute drive from Cork City,’’ says Mr O’Leary

VERDICT: A bright buy
