Trading up: Grange, Cork €255,000

This house is in immaculate condition, with easy keep gardens front and back, and off-street parking. 

The owners of 51 Ashford Court, near Cooney’s Lane in Cork’s suburban Grange, have made this house very much a home: it’s packed with cherished possessions, mementoes, and shelves of art and craft-related items, many of them hanging with pride in the rooms and along the stairs.

Now, it’s moving on and packing up time, with pictures and paintings about to say goodbye to the walls of No 51.

Newly listed with estate agent Trish Stokes of Lisney Cork, it’s a three-bed semi in immaculate order, and weighing in at c 1,300 sq ft, with the bonus of a rear sun room off the kitchen/dining room, while an attic extension adds to its overall sense of space and utility. 

The bright attic level has lots of eaves storage, plus there’s a WC/shower room up here into the bargain. The mid-level, meanwhile, has three bedrooms, two of them doubles,plus family bathroom.

No 51 has a C3 BER, good for its vintage, entirely cosy thanks to a wood-burning stove in the front sitting room, and the back section which has the sun room linked to the dining/kitchen has a gas-fired stove.

Ms Stokes says the house is in immaculate condition, with easy keep gardens front and back, and off-street parking. 

The Grange/Frankfield area’s on the cusp of spreading and well-serviced Douglas, with easy access to the Kinsale Road, airport, business parks and the all-important ring road.
