Starter home: Ballincollig, Cork €180,000

Space and good value combine at 24 Fernway, in Classes Lake, at Ovens/Ballincollig west of Cork, where €180,000 will buy a four-bed duplex apartment with a 24’ long outside veranda.

Size: 108 sq m (1,158 sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


So says Barry Nagle of Global Properties who says it is one of the biggest duplexes on the market in Cork.

With a large kitchen and big living space, No 24 is as good for owner-occupiers as for investors, and if let could earn €1,200 per month.

VERDICT: Upwardly mobile?
