Trading up: Cobh, Co Cork €370,000

There’s a sweep of estuary vista from the Great Island, Cork home called Woodside - it could as easily be called Waterview.

This dormer bungalow, with up to three ground floor bedrooms and three more overhead with two en suites, is for sale with Cobh agent Johanna Murphy, jointly with Liz Hannon of English Auctioneers, and they guide the 2,200 sq ft property at €370,000, noting it’s on a half acre of lovely sloping gardens with lots of mature planting to help root it to its ‘island’ etting.

An accommodating and adaptable family home, Woodside is at Marino, on the back part of Cobh/Great Island and so is sheltered from the more exposed side of the island, which has more open harbour and ocean views instead.

Location is 20 minutes from the city, with cross-river ferry options also for commuters, is two or three miles from Cobh and Woodside’s a well-kept home, inside and out.

Rooms include two reception rooms, one linked to the kitchen with double doors, utility, ground floor bathroom with bath, two ground floor bedrooms and a study/bed six.

Upstairs is a shower room, and three more bedrooms, two with en suite and one of them also has a dressing room.

VERDICT: Expansive views.
