Trading up: Rochestown, Cork €335,000

Detached in Rochestown, in a cul de sac overlooking a green area, 29 Foxwood has much to attract a family.

Size: 100sq m (1,085sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 3 

BER: D2

Guiding at €335,000, it’s a red-brick fronted three-bed bungalow with 1,085 sq ft of living space. 

One of four similar bungalows located in a cul de sac in the estate, it’s within a five minute walk from Garryduff Spots Centre and is even closer to the local primary school.

Selling agents Sherry FitzGerald expect good interest because of popularity of the development and convenience to Douglas village, approximately 3.5km away.

The well-maintained property has had one owner since it was built in the late 1990s and may require some updating, while the purchaser might also want to improve on the D2 energy rating.

To the front there’s a living room with a bay window and a gas fire and to the rear a kitchen dining room with white fitted units. 

There’s also a utility room, a bathroom and three bedrooms — two doubles and a single. 

The main bedroom is at the front and has an en suite and built in wardrobes. The bungalow has lawned gardens at back and front with a driveway, mature trees and a shed.

An attic conversion could be an option for this house too. 

Verdict: Interest should be good — a nearby four-bed semi sold for €355,000 in July.
