Trading up: Model Farm Road, Cork €295,000

In most circumstances, No 10 Woodford would be snapped up by a family looking for a three/four-bed home in Cork’s western suburbs. But its location, almost on the doorstep of Cork Institute of Technology and near the old Fás training centre and business parks, might also put it on the radar of investor buyers.

The brick-faced, semi-detached modern home is just off the Model Farm Rd and Rossa Avenue, within a stone’s throw of the CIT campus and its superb sporting facilities, and is guided at €295,000 by estate agent Timothy Sullivan.

That’s for a home within a quiet cul de sac of just a handful of houses, in short terraces and semi-Ds,

No 10 is in at the end by a small green, and is south facing to the back. It has the option of a ground-floor bedroom four to the side of the hall, which has a shower room en suite, and two reception rooms, one a dining room of 18’ by 11’, next to a compact kitchen.

Overall condition is good, heating is via oil, and there is lots of scope to be had with the walled-in back garden, with some existing block-built outbuildings.

Verdict: Blink and you could miss Woodford.
