THE same family have been years, decades even, in ownership of Rosedene, and as it now comes to market ready for new ownership, it’s in very good order, with lots of updating touches already done.
And, as a bonus, apart from the four bedrooms and three floors of accommodation in the house, there’s a very good order one-bed self-contained flat to the back, which can yield extra income from guests or students.
The early 1900s semi-detached house is No 39 on the Glasheen Road near UCC and just a walk to Cork City centre, and is guided at €395,000 by agent Johnny O’Flynn of Sherry FitzGerald.
The same firm earlier this year sold the larger, five-bedroomed Lios na Laoi on the same road for €430,000, after it went for sale in 2012 guiding €465,000.
Set near Hartlands Avenue and behind tall gates with a cobble-lock drive, Rosedene’s in very good order throughout, says Mr O’Flynn, with much of its original features kept, from the tiled hall floor onwards and inwards, along with fireplaces, ceiling coving and more.
There’s a formal front reception with bay window, rear kitchen with dining space beyond with southerly aspect and patio access, with guest WC.
Overhead, over two levels, are four bedrooms, one with en suite, plus a main bathroom.
The studio apartment is also well-kept, with living area with cast iron fireplace, a kitchen, and en suite bedroom, and each section has separate central heating, oil for the apartment, gas for the main house.
VERDICT: A good mix of options here for families, investors or even a mix of both users given the proximity of hospitals, UCC, etc.
