Trading up: Well Road, Cork €375,000

Pitched as much at traders down as traders up — or just those keen on a strong location — is this bungalow called Inish, on Cork’s Well Road.

It’s set at the Douglas end of the road, a few minutes walk from shopping centres, cafes and services, ‘though a downside may be traffic build up on the Well Road when trying to get cars in and out of homes in this particular stretch at peak times.

Inish is under offer now with Sam Kingston of Casey and Kingston, at €320,000, shy of his €375,000 asking price.

It comes with 1,100 sq ft of accommodation, mostly at ground level, where the two main reception rooms and two of the bedrooms have fireplaces: bedroom no 3 is upstairs, under the sloping roof, with a box dormer window to the front and the short graveled driveway.

It’s in good overall condition, and the BER is a not-too bad D1.

The quite basic kitchen opens to a 15’ by 10’ conservatory, overlooking a south-aspected back garden.

Inish has an attached garage, and although a handy size as it stands, given the primacy of the location it’s likely whoever buys and lives here next will want some sort of upgrade and as much extension as the site and access will allow.

VERDICT: Set for greater things?
