Houses in the up-market Belfield Abbey development, completed to builder’s finish several years ago by O’Flynn Construction are due to come to market in the new year.
Size: 136 sq m (1,464 sq ft)
A number have been sold quietly in the past several years, but this offer, the slick No 46, is a privately-owned resale.
The three-storey end-terrace home is fresh to market this week with agent Timothy Sullivan, who guides at €375,000 for this walk-in job, in a very well-kept estate.
It’s within an easy walk of Cork City centre, on a bus route serving Mahon’s City Gate office developments, and there’s schools and services in the adjoining suburbs.
It’s been privately occupied for five or six years and is going to suit a mix of traders up, the better-heeled starters out, and some traders down too, reckons Mr Sullivan.
As a design/layout feature, these houses have an open plan 26’ by 18’ ground floor living/dining/kitchen, a first-floor living room, next to a master en suite bedroom, with two further top floor bedrooms, and bathroom.
Recent sales of similar Belfield houses nearby in recent years have ranged from mid €200,000s to €310,000, with uncompleted fit-outs and interiors, the mid terraced No 47 sold in 2013 for €268,000.
No 1, larger and detached on the main Boreenmanna Road, sold by Christmas in 2013 for €500,000.
VERDICT: Great location, well-finished.
