Space, view and garden could make this home your number one

Well-situated property impresses on many fronts, says Tommy Barker

There’s a great family-friendly back garden, stepped over two levels with play spaces, lots of patio and neat timber railing at 1 Park Wood Close.

Set in Parklands by the Commons Road, No 1’s a great option for families starting out or even trading up, as it has a very useful attic conversion, with eaves storage.

No 1’s new to market with agent Mark Gosling of Jeremy Murphy Associates, carrying a €170,000 asking price, and it will, he says, impress on many fronts.

First up, the location’s good, within an easy strike of the city centre, off the Commons Road and facing back towards the Commons Inn and the wooded glen backdrop here leaving Blackpool out the Mallow Road, with a bus stop nearby also. Next, condition inside and out is spot-on and spotless, and the standard three-bed layout is enhanced by the attic room, with rear Velux. There’s an attached garage, and fully concreted front garden and drive making for easy off-street parking, while the back garden’s perimeter is colourfully planted up.

Then, factor in that stepped back garden (four steps only between two flat levels) and its space plus long views beyond the walled boundaries, and No 1 rises to a number one sales pitch position.

LOCATION: Commons Road, Cork

PRICE: €170,000

SIZE: Sq m 102 (1,100 sq ft)



VERDICT: A good deal of good Parklands house for the €170k asking price.
