Mature houses such as Fellsway at 21 Boreenmanna Road, Cork, always have bigger gardens than their modern counterparts and are almost always found in more central locations.

Size: 137sq m (1,489sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 3 

BER: E1

Its location, within a 10-minute walk of the City Hall and a 15-minute one from the South Mall, is expected by selling agents Sherry FitzGerald to attract a lot of interest from buyers seeking to move in from the outskirts.

Probably built in the 1950s, Fellsway is a larger than average three-bed semi with 1,480 sq ft of space. 

Seeking offers of €380,000 auctioneer Anne O’Mahony points out that it has a good sized garden and offers space to extend if a buyer wants something bigger.

Already enlarged by a single storey extension at one side, the house has two front living rooms with fireplaces as well as a long kitchen/dining room with dark oak units and integrated appliances. 

There’s also a separate dining room, which could be used as a study or bedroom in addition to a small utility room and a shower room.

Upstairs the property has a bathroom and three bedrooms. 

A sizable gravelled area at front offers parking space for several cars while the lawned back garden which has one large mature tree, offers space for both sitting out and playing.

Verdict: Mature, spacious and well located.
