Options for investors, as well as private and first-time buyers, are on the books of estate agent Jeremy Murphy at Glendale, by Cork city’s Glasheen Road.

Back in November, he put No 16 Glendale Road for sale, with five bedrooms and a €207,000 asking price.

Now, for a dearer guide, €225,000, he has same-sized (c 1,200 sq ft) No 55 Glendale Grove, which is still in the original three-bed format.

In sound order — a tad dated, but good enough to move into and to work on over time if a buyer wants — it has an attached garage which give future conversion/extension potential.

No 55 has very good living space, with front reception room with tiled open fireplace, there’s a more compact separate dining room, as well as a decent 22’ by 11’ family room, with sliding patio doors to the back garden.

It’s also got a kitchen, with older units, and a guest WC.

Overhead are two doubles and one single bedroom, plus a family bathroom.

The back garden faces south, and has a block-built garden shed.

No 55 is near the end of a cul de sac, with easy access to the Glasheen and Clashduv roads, shops, UCC, hospitals etc.

VERDICT: Handy, settled southside location and a nice cul de sac setting too, within a 10-minute walk of UCC, CUH and the Bons.
