An apartment that’s spot-on for owner occupation has come for sale close to Cok’s emblematic Blackrock Castle.
Size: 115 sq m (1,242 sq ft)
Set in a quite modern build of four units, this sale offer of No 3 at Castletide Manor is of a ‘house-sized’ three-bed apartment on the Castle Road, and at over 1,200sq ft it is the size of a three-bed semi-D, even an over-standard sized one.
It’s up on the first floor of the building, with River Lee views towards Little Island, and right on its doorstep is the popular harbour amenity walk from the castle swinging around to Rochestown, and then on down the old railway line further to Passage West, Glenbrook and Monkstown.
In Blackrock village, the former Ursuline Convent is in the final throes of finishing of a small number of luxurious apartments, likely to come to market pre-summer aimed at traders-down, professionals working in Mahon and at investors, and now rebranded as Blackrock House.
At Castletide Manor, selling agent Sheila O’Flynn of Sherry FitzGerald guides this three-bed, one en suite apartment at €285,000 and she says it is as suitable for owner occupation as an investment (rents would be about €1,100 a month) and notes it has open-plan living inside, dual aspect with kitchen/dining living combined, shared grounds outside, and off-road parking, with views.
VERDICT: Next best thing to Blackrock Castle
