It’s no great shakes right now, but the three-bed semi-d ‘Ais­ling’, at 24 Farranlea Grove in Cork city’s ma­ture western sub­urbs, is still go­ing to catch the eye, and get good view­ings.

That’s be­cause the lo­ca­tion be­tween the Model Farm Road and Farranlea Road is ever-pop­u­lar, and No 24’s site is within the cul de sac, a cor­ner one, so there’s oo­dles of space to ex­tend, which is al­most a rac­ing cer­tainty as it comes up for new own­er­ship.

Sell­ing agent Mal­colm Tyrrell of Co­ha­lan Down­ing guides Ais­ling at an even € 200,000, with a detached garage in the back gar­den, and the house has a good west­erly as­pect around the back — so, that’s prob­a­bly the di­rec­tion any would-be ex­ten­ders would think of head­ing.

It has a lit­tle over 1,000 sq ft right now, with a ba­sic lay­out and mod­est­sized rooms and cur­rently both house and gar­den are fairly raw, need­ing a make-over and TLC — but, the up­side is you’re not pay­ing for half de­cent stuff you’d be tak­ing back out straight away in any re­fur­bish­ment. VER­DICT: The site’s a par­tic­u­larly good and work­able one.
