Trish Dromey says this well-kept home is perfect for a first-time buyer.
Size: 91 sq m (985 sq ft)
With a guide of €195,000 , this modern two-bed house at 37 Riverside Avenue at Rushbrook in Cobh might be right up the alley of a first-time buyer.
Selling agents Johanna Murphy & Sons say the 985 sq ft three storey property is in excellent condition and has been very well cared for by owner occupiers who recently put in new white high gloss kitchen units.
When it was built, the end-of-terrace house had a third bedroom on the ground floor but the owners decided to use this space to create a larger sitting room.
The kitchen along with the utility room are located at basement level while the ground floor has an L shaped timber floored living room as well as a guest WC.
Upstairs there’s a bathroom and two bedrooms — a master bedroom with built-in wardrobes and an en suite for the adults and a blue room with bunk beds for the boys.
From the upstairs windows you can look out and see the ferry toing and froing to Passage West.
In front the house has parking space for two cars and to the side there’s a set of steps leading down to the back garden which is at a lower level.
Out back there’s a paved patio, a shed and a lawn with a trampoline.
Located around three kilometers from Cobh train station, it’s within a ten minute walk from the local Centra.
VERDICT: well maintained and affordable
