Trading up: Lackaroe, Youghal €320,000

Space, inside and out, comes as a given with this modern, five-bed detached home north of Youghal.

About six miles from the coast and harbour town and just on the Cork side of the river Blackwater near Glendine along the Tallow road, this detached 3,000 sq ft home is set at Ballydaniel, Lackaroe.

It’s listed with local agents Property Team Noel Mackey, jointly with Jeremy Murphy Associates in Cork city, and they guide at just over €100 per square foot, or €320,000. That’s for a comfortable, well-kept and well-plumbed (three en suite bedrooms) family home, on a rural site just shy of an acre.

Agents Noel Mackey describe it as “a beautiful five-bed home with wonderful country views,” and some of those views can be best sampled from a side sun room, and adjacent section or railed deck for al fresco snacks and BBQs.

With bay windows at ground level, the two-storey house has one en suite bedroom at ground level, so it’s very adaptable, and there’s also a large hall, sitting room, living room, kitchen/dining room, and utility, plus cloakroom.

In addition, there’s a floored attic with access, and a 450 sq ft garage

VERDICT: Lots of house for the money by Youghal and the Blackwater.
