In good order, in a cul de sac in the Fota Rock development ten minutes east of Cork City near Carrigtwohill, is No 11 Cedar Road, a three-bed semi-d carrying a €142k asking price with agent Matt Fallon of FML Properties.

It’s got all the essentials for the type, such as a ground floor guest WC, and a master bedroom en suite, and there’s a bay window to the front reception room.

Condition is excellent, says Mr Fallon, and it’s near all local services and just 10 minutes from the Jack Lynch tunnel.

VERDICT: Starter home that will stand the test of time.
