It’s been a few years since a house sale has shown up on the Price Register at the Wrenville development, on the southern side of Cork’s Carrigaline.
Size: 158 sq m (1,690 sq ft)
In fact, the last recorded sale was late 2015.
Looking back over the past six years on the Register, there’s been a clutch of semis, making €200,000-€250,000, and a trio of detacheds selling in the €300k-plus bracket.
No 2 Wrenville sold in 2011 at the depth of the market’s plummet for a recorded €317,000, and now the same house in a cul de sac section by Wrenville’s entrance is back on offer once more, guided at €375,000 by estate agent Dennis Guerin of Frank V Murphy & Co.
That’s about the price level a good three-bed semi-d in Cork city’s suburbs: here, at Pipers Cross off the Kilmoney Road, by way of contrast you’ll get a four-bed detached, of modern build, with close to 1,700 sq ft within, plus front and back garden, and C3 BER rating.
No 2 Wrenvile has two principal reception rooms, with front lounge, rear family room with patio access, plus to the left side of the hall is a home office/study.
Then, to the back there’s a good mix of part-divided kitchen with timber units, and an adjoining dining room too, with a guest loo reached via the utility by the kitchen.
Upstairs the master bedroom has an en suite, and the main family bathrooms serves the other three bedrooms.
VERDICT: Plenty of space, so could be a home for decades to come.
