Trading up: Rushbrooke, Cork Harbour, €249,000

Views to Monkstown across the harbour, some water glimpses and a south-west facing back and side garden, come with No 20 in Gardiners Walk, a well-kept semi-d on Cork harbour’s Great Island.

Size: 89 sq m (960 sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 3 


Part of the large Rushbrooke Links development, No 20 Gardiners Walk is now being sold by its trading-up owners who are remaining locally, and Cobh-based estate agent Johanna Murphy says simply “it’s a nice house, in a nice location, in a cul de sac by a green and has been very tastefully and recently decorated, so it’s ready to move into.”

On a slightly sloping site and angled for the sun at the back where there’s a very decent garden with decking, No 20’s a modern 960 sq ft three- bed, with one en suite, front sitting room with ornate cast iron fireplace (there’s also gas heating) and a rear kitchen/diner with patio access.

No 20’s set by a walkway in Rushbrooke Links, flanked by old Scots Pine trees and across the pathway a large four-bed semi-d, No 21 Gardiners Walk, has had a price drop to €249,000 via agent Liz Hannon of English & Co auctioneers.

VERDICT: No 20’s good to go for those keen on an affordable, modern Cobh buy near a rail station.
