Trading up: Glanmire, Cork €465,000

No 33 Chestnut Meadows is not only one of the larger house types in this popular, trading-up Glanmire development, it’s also on possibly one of the very largest sites within it.

They’re underpinning attractions to the detached, four/five bedroomed trading up home in this 15-year old development, which is new to market this month with agents Andrew Moore & Co, carrying a €465,000 asking price.

No 33’s a good quality and spacious family home in a popular and accessible Glanmire setting, notes Andy Moore, and its grounds now include a smart, large c 700 sq ft rear deck across the back of the house, with pergola, just needing a bit of climbing plants now to start colonising it and to cloak and soften the structure.

Internally, No 33 has two main reception rooms, and there’s a further dining room, off the kitchen and linked by a wide arch, while double doors lead from the dining space to a living room.

Kitchen units are in maple, shaker style, and there’s also a utility room (with new gas boiler) and guest WC.

Most internal joinery in the house is varnished pine, and overhead one of the four bedrooms has a slender en suite, and there’s an optional fifth bedroom, or study.

The attic is a handy additional storage space, floored, with Velux and power supply and could be used for other purposes as well.

VERDICT: Good essentials, just needs a new owner’s personality stamp.
