There are houses very large and just large-ish, up at Woodlands in Cork’s Montenotte.
Late last year, a sort of one-off, five-bed here on a quarter-acre Woodlands’ Demesne section in this overall McInerney-developed location, sold in a low-key manner for €600,000 via Sherry FitzGerald.
Now, for families with less to spend, but keen on the popular, elevated location, agent Matt Fallon on FML has a detached four-bed, No 32 Woodlands to which he pins a €350,000 asking price.
The detached home, which he says is in very good order, has just over 1,800 sq ft and so is a perfect, and relatively affordable, trading-up fit for families in a handy setting, high and dry above the city beyond St Luke’s Cross — and with quick access to the northern ring road.
The larger of its two reception rooms is 17’ by 12’, there’s also a study, kitchen, utility and guest WC, and one of the four beds is en suite
There’s off-street parking at this address, along with gas heating and the roof is fitted with solar panels.
The house is fitted with an alarm, with what Mr Fallon describes as a sun-trap patio in the back garden, with a high retaining wall to the site’s northern boundary.
VERDICT: Accessible location and lofty address.
