There’s almost a whole other bungalow behind 1 Kingslea — a solidly-built storage shed and utility, built with matching solid tiled roof, is substantial enough to almost quality for its own Eircode, and could be otherwise addressed as ‘1A Kingslea.’

It’s a substantial bonus coming on top of (or, more literally, behind) this c 1980-built detached 1,4675 sq ft home, at the Douglas village end of the Grange Road south and east of Cork city, and inside here, No 1 is the first house in this cul de sac of about a dozen single-storey homes.

Trading up: Grange, Cork €435,000

Well-kept, and updated internally with fresh bathrooms and kitchen, No 1 is a four-bed family home with L-shaped bright living room to the front with internal stepped or sunken level by the open, Adam-style marble fireplace. 

There are four double bedrooms (one’s en-suite) left and right of a central hall, with triple-aspect family room at the back, catching views also to the carport-like arch entrance side passage.

Selling agents are Paul O’Shea and Ann O’Mahony of Sherry FitzGerald, who guide at €435,000, and they say it is in walk-in condition, and within an easy walk of Douglas village’s services and shops and schools, as well as Grange/Frankfield’s own supermarket and school.
