GETTING TO GRIPS with a fast-changing property market is tricky, but we’re here to make things simpler.
Each week, we’ll handpick a number of homes within a similar budget, to give you a snapshot of the property landscape at a particular price point.
This week, we’re looking at properties around Cork with an asking price of exactly €270,000 – from a three-bed in Ballybane West to a modern property in Midleton.
A three-bed property, Willow Tree House is located on 0.5 acres. It enjoys beautiful countryside views and benefits from a south-facing aspect with distant sea views. Measuring 1,900 sq ft, the accommodation is filled with natural light throughout.
On the ground floor, there’s a cosy sitting room, kitchen/diner, sunroom, utility room, bathroom and a double bedroom. The first floor comprises two bedrooms, an en suite bathroom, a family bathroom and a study. Outside, there’s a large garden to the front, as well as a shed/workshop, polytunnel and chicken coop.
Tucked away in a quiet development, 7 The Courtyard is a modern mid-terrace property. It comes to the market in turn-key condition, with a bright and well laid-out interior. Features include a solid oak staircase, laminate wood flooring and a neat corner kitchen.
There’s a maintenance-free garden with a large patio to the front, while French doors in the dining area lead to a raised south-facing decking area. Glanmire village is a 20-minute walk away, while Cork city can be reached within a 15 minute drive.
Located a 20-minute walk from the heart of Midleton, 23 Wheatley Hills is a modern and stylish family home. It comes to the market ready for occupation, with features including built-in wardrobes, a fitted stove and timber flooring.
The ground accommodation comprises a light-filled living room with built-in shelving, an open-plan kitchen and dining room, and a guest bathroom. There are three bedrooms and a family bathroom on the first floor, with an en suite bathroom from the master bedroom. To the rear, there’s a manicured lawn and patio area, plus a steel-tech shed.
