Starter home: Carrignavar, Cork €230,000

A full modernising overhaul has been done on the bungalow called Shalom, within a walk of Cork’s Carrignavar village.

Selling agent Noreen O’Sullivan of OSN Properties says the spotless three-bed home is well-located on a 0.42 acre site with mature boundaries and has new floors, upgraded insulation in the attic and new heating, new condensing boiler, doors and more (but the kitchen’s still older style), and has 1,200 sq ft, plus attached garage.

“It’s had a complete revamp and is equal to a new property,” she notes.

VERDICT: Wide buying appeal, and an easily converted garage too.
