Ticking lots of boxes for those looking for an affordable, four-bed family home is 4, North Avenue: this well-kept, Ruden Homes-built semi-detached house has 1,200 sq ft of living and sleeping space, three double bedrooms, plus a single, and it’s priced at €269,000.
No 4 is in the Ruden scheme on the Banduff Road, near the Fox and Hounds in Ballyvolane and the Old Youghal Rd, easily reached off Cork’s North Ring Rd, and is a relatively recent build, and still has its Homebond guarantee, notes its auctioneer.
Listed with agent Matt Fallon (who himself is on the move, switching his city centre auctioneering offices from the Grand Parade to the corner of the Grand Parade and the South Mall) it’s in walk-in condition, set in a cul de sac near lots of amenities and schools.
Accommodation includes an oak-floored front sitting room with cast-iron fireplace, rear dining room linking to a kitchen and with patio access, and a ground floor guest loo.
Flooring is wood, or tiles in the hall, dining and kitchen, and the stairs is varnished pine, with varnished floors in all four bedrooms also. The master bedroom is en suite, and heating is gas-fired.
VERDICT: A good, clean buy. On the edge of the city.
Banduff Road, Cork City
Size: 112 sq m (1,200 sq ft)
