Like the buses coming in clusters, homes and resales are fast and furious at Rathmore Lawn, off Cork city’s South Douglas Road a spot near the Briar Rose Bar, and due to host a neighbours’ street party at the end of this September.
One of these estate house which was tucked away in a cul de sac section, with great long back gardens, recently made over €400k after hectic bidding; another, facing due southcame to market last month at €335,000 with agent Kevin O’Sullivan, and now Tom Woodward (who has sold several other Rathmore homes) prices No 25/Villa Deslyn, at €350,000 and has it under swift offer.
It’s had lots of the “heavy lifting” done in recent times, has a retiled roof and reinsulated attic, has been underpinned and drains have been replaced, and now any other changes will be discretionary in any new ownership (it’s an executor sale.)
It has a simple and traditional layout, with two reception rooms each with original tiled fireplaces, plus an older style 19’ by 8’ kitchen.
The back garden faces west, also getting southerly sun, and there’s a detached garage and off-street parking.
VERDICT: All set to be taken up to a new level now - more at Rathmore.
