The detached 1970s-built houses in Cork’s Grange Erin were built in a sort of snaking, twisting internal road layout, so there’s hardly a straight run of homes to be seen in this Grange, Douglas, development.
And, as a result, it’s hardly surprising that No 48 Grange Erin is on a corner site: it’s in good company, and as a result, the place is all corners.
A tall-looking, three-bed 1,450 sq ft detached with converted garage (now a TV/den room and utility up against the neighbours), it’s listed for sale as a winter offer with estate agent Jeremy Murphy at €289,000.
He says at that it’s deceptively spacious, and is a very good option for a first time buyer. No 48’s towards the front of Grange Erin, close to Douglas village, with a small lawn in front, and has a split level rear garden with crazy-paved patio and elevated deck section, all with side access.
Internally, it has a front living room with twin, slender windows and fireplace, behind via an arch is a dining room, and separately there’s a kitchen with oak units, utility, study/den/TV room, and guest WC.
Overhead, one of the three bedrooms is en suite with built-ins and it too has twin windows to the front of the house, now double glazed in PVC and the gas boiler is only a year old, helping it hit a C3 BER.
Verdict: Corner the market
