Different from the humdrum and the norm thanks to large apex upstairs windows are the terraced townhouses at Skibbereen’s Flaxmills development, near the Ilen River and five minutes from the West Cork town centre.

Estate agent John Hodnett of Hodnett Forde seeks offers of €140,000 for a three-bed mid-terraced home, No 7, and stresses it is in very good decorative order inside, with parking front and back. It suits a range of buyers, from FTBs to retirees and second home hunters, he adds.

VERDICT: Modernity on the edge of town.
