A good starter home, in a great location — so says estate agent Florence Gabriel as she joins Sherry FitzGerald in Cork, and lists 2 Rowan Hill at a €210,000 price guide.
Sq m 70 (760 sq ft)
The Price Register shows at least four other two-beds here selling this year for just over the €210k sum (and several sold in 2013 for €125-150k), while larger end terraces in Rowan Hill make in and around the €250,000 price level.
No 2 Rowan Hill is part of the large O’Flynn Construction Mount Oval development in Cork’s Rochestown, with houses of all sizes and now with a strong record of resales, and of residents trading up and trading down within the development, as it caters for all ages and lifestages.
This 760 sq ft two-storey two-bed is not too large but its back living room is a good enough size, at 15’ by 11’ and it has access to a west-aspected back garden with section of lawn, and patio.
In front of this mid-terrace home, meanwhile, is railed in front garden, with smaller lawn and block-paved path, and there’s communal parking and an open green in this cul de sac section of Mount Oval Village, which has its own range of shops, services and bar/restaurant, a two minute walk from Rowan Hill
Back inside No 2, there’s a front kitchen/dining room with gloss units and a tiled floor, and a guest WC under the stairs, while overhead are two bedrooms and a main bathroom, which has also got access to the larger of the two bedrooms.
VERDICT: Ready for a new owner’s stamp of personality
