All done up and ideal for a trader down buyer, or just as equally a starter out, is 194 Silversprings Court, in Cork’s Tivoli, just east of the city off the North Ring Road.

This detached, two-bed bungalow has had a new kitchen and bathroom fitted recently, the attic is floored with Stira access, insulation has been upgraded and a solid fuel stove has been fitted too in the main living area to the front of the house (with patio door/front window) for extra cosiness.

Selling agent Michael O’Donovan of Sherry FitzGerald seeks offers around €135,000 for the 650sq ft two-bed home, in smart decorative order, with features like rad cover in the hall and mirrored sliding wardrobes in a bedroom.

VERDICT: Small goods, good parcel.
