Starter homes: Tower, Blarney €145,000

There’s a lovely warm feed to the interior and decor at 40, Primrose Hill, a scheme of well-kept homes built in the 1980s between Blarney and Tower, a few miles commute from Cork city.

Last sold in 2012 when needing updating, No 40 now carries a €145k asking price with agents DNG Condon, who describe the decor as ‘French cottage style’, with real warmth from a multi-fuel stove in a new granite hearth, with oil central heating as well for a dual heating system, and this main room with arch could be sub-divided if required.

No 40’s new to market, and is already under offer, say the agents, advising swift viewings.

VERDICT: Detached status, and updated interior all for under 150k.
