Modern home a blooming great buy

No 5 Willison, Tower, has attractive back garden and decking.

Estate agent Michael O’Donovan of Sherry FitzGerald’s Cork city offices has been given an easy selling job to do at 5 Willison, a three-bed semi-d at Tower, near Cork, and so ideal for Apple employees.

The modern home is in mint order inside and out, with very attractive back gardens and decking, and inside it has recently had its insulation levels upgraded. Walls have been pumped with foam, and the attic’s insulation has been improved significantly.

Mr O’Donovan guides the 950 sq ft home at €140,000, and says it’s pristine, in a cul de sac, with a double-width drive and narrow strip of front lawn. Most garden effort has gone into the back garden, with a raised and shrubbed back flower bed framed in old railway sleepers, and immediately to the back of the house is a raised decking area.

There’s a 15’ by almost 10’ oak floored sitting room in front, with bay window, and double doors to a 16’ by 12’ kitchen/dining room, with oak units and dark tiled floor. Overhead are three bedrooms, two of which are doubles, with built-ins.

VERDICT: Very well priced for first-time buyers.
