Trading Up: Riverstick, Cork €440,000

Job done. Having put a roof over the heads of a family with seven children, this 1991-built 3,000 sq ft home called Stonewalls at Glinny near Riverstick and within a short drive of Kinsale, is up for sale, and ready to do service all over again.

Riverstick, Cork €440,000

Size: 284sq m (3,000sq ft)

Bathrooms: 5+

Bedrooms: 5+


However, for families with less than seven children in tow, it;s adaptable to allow for division into a four-bed house with three-bed granny flat, making it of interest to another cross-section of possible buyers, including extended families.

And, given the relative proximity to Kinsale, and all the building work at Eli Lilly in Dunderrow, there could be rental income to be had too.

Selling agent is John Barry of Frank V Murphy & Co, and he guides the spacious, rendered and white-painted Stonewalls dormer with a few first floor additional rooms including a large playroom with Veluxes at €440,000.

It’s in good overall condition, he notes, with several en suite bathrooms to boot, and has three reception rooms.

It’s on a rural, roadside site of 0.72 acre with mature grounds, hedged and screened areas, lawn, and parking, and faces south at the back with long views back to Riverstick.

VERDICT: Riverstick appears back on a roll, thanks to a setting between the city and Kinsale: see ‘Rowan View’ feature p14.
