Trading up: Glounthaune, Cork. €350,000

You can see the weather coming, from miles and miles away, at this Glounthaune home — and, perhaps, that’s where the name Weatherly comes from.

All on the one level, this wide bungalow home with adjacent double garage/carport, faces south across the inner estuary of Cork harbour, so the vista’s expansive, taking in water, slob, land and sky — lots of it.

Inside, Weatherly has about 2,100 sq ft of living space, and that’s a sizeable footprint for most families. If ever there was a chance to build up into the attic, this would be a whopper.

Right now, its four bedrooms are to the eastern end, while the southern aspect has a family room, and a sun room beyond the hall and second living room, with the kitchen/dining behind, next to a utility.

Overall condition is excellent, says estate agent Ian Lyons of Savills in Cork City, who guides at €350,000.

Weatherly is on a sloping, southerly site, with the approach drive up from below, and its 0.75 acre site allows lawns front and back, screened by high hedges. It’s within a walk of Glounthaune village and commuter rail service, and about five miles from the city.

VERDICT: Great family space, in a settled residential area.
