A whole lot of home in Saleen, east Cork for just under the €200k mark

There’s great deal of quality home to be had for just under the €200k mark at East Cork’s Saleen village — a few miles from Midleton’s hub.

Not yet 10 years old, the double-fronted No 5 Woodview Lawn was extended in 2008, and now has a 20’ by 14’ rear sun room floored in Travertine, and with exposed timbers in the roof, overlooking a mint-order garden with lots of planting and a paved patio.

Selling agent is Clare O’Sullivan of Savills, who says it’s very spacious, and it has four bedrooms, one of them en suite.

The end-terrace home clearly has been minded by its house-proud owners, and apart from being in move-in condition, has good room sizes too.

Thus, the front sitting room is 16’ by 15, the kitchen/diner behind is the full width of the house at 23’ by 13’ deep, and opens to the well-finished sun-room, with a utility tucked away between them in a corner

There’s also a ground floor WC, and upstairs the largest bedroom at 13’ by 13’, has a shower en suite, with a bath in the main bathroom.

Externally, pivoting woodgrain-effect pvc windows blend with the stone and brick front facade, and the gardens behind are laid out with hefty sleepers, while the patio is done out in Indian sandstone.

VERDICT: A well finished home in an accessible small Cork harbour area village.
