One owner, from day one, stands to the benefit of 35, Lower Clevedon, a three-bed semi-d off the Kilmoney Road in Cork’s Carrigaline. Up for sale with agents Jeremy Murphy Associates with a €169,000 asking price, it’s in mint order he says, with a west-facing back garden which gets lots of use thank to its aspect and handy storage shed and patio.

Inside, No 35 is fairly standard in its semi-d format, only fresher than most, and it has a 14’ by 11’ front room with bay window, open fireplace and laminate floor. The rest of the ground floor is done in pale porcelain tiling, including the hall, and rear kitchen/dining room, which runs 18’ across the back of the house. The kitchen’s units wrap around three sides to serve as a room divide and serving space for the dining room, which has garden access thanks to patio doors. There’s a guest WC at this level, but no separate utility rooms

Upstairs are three bedrooms, plus family bathroom. There’s also Stira access to the attic.

VERDICT: A clean buy, good aspect, facing a green, within a walk of Carrigaline’s services makes No 35 worth checking out.
