Trading up: Carrigaline, Cork, €390,000

Size: 205 sq ft (2,200 sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4/5 

BER: C2

THERE are up to five bedrooms in this detached family home at 13 Carrig Court, in south Cork’s Carrigaline, which comes with mature gardens outside, and some 2,200 sq ft inside, for a price tag of €390,000.

A highly-adaptable home, it has at its ground level an optional fifth bedroom plus wet room, with easy access and all done to wheelchair-accessible regulation standard: it’s ideal for anyone with mobility issues, older family members to care for, or even a headstrong teen, keen on their own extra bit of space.

And, it comes with three reception rooms, kitchen, utility and four overhead double bedrooms, one of which is en suite.

Agent Steven Browne of Sherry FitzGerald O’Donovan says it has more space than many other newer detacheds coming for sale at this price level in Carrigaline, but the compromise is that although it’s been well maintained, the decor reflects its older status, as it’s a few decades old.

Its gardens are private and mature, with off-street parking and there’s a water feature in the low maintenance south-facing back garden. 

Location is on the Cork side of the town, near the entrance to Herons Wood, and it’s within a walk of the Main Street, shops and schools. Mr Browne describes Carrig Court as a quiet and conveniently located park.

VERDICT: No 13 Carrig Court needs some modernising, but has value-for-money space, privacy, and a good location.
