A peach by the beach in Youghal

Tr­ish Dromey hears No 4 Pil­more Cot­tages is at­tract­ing big in­ter­est

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Starter Homes -

AAlthough it was built as a hol­i­day home, No 4 Pil­more Cot­tages in Youghal is, with its sea views, spa­cious ac­com­mo­da­tion and four bed­rooms, now at­tract­ing first-time buyer in­ter­est. So say sell­ing agents Col­bert & Co who, within hours of ad­ver­tis­ing the prop­erty on­line, se­cured a bid of €165,000, just €10,000 shy of the ask­ing price, from the first viewer.

“As a four bed de­tached prop­erty with sea views, it of­fers very good value at this price,’’ says auc­tion­eer James Col­bert adding that much of the in­ter­est so far has come from first time buy­ers. He says that sev­eral of the houses in the small gated 12 prop­erty de­vel­op­ment are al­ready owner oc­cu­pied. “The lo­ca­tion, a few min­utes walk from the beach, is idyl­lic and is just 12 kilo­me­tres from Youghal,’’ he adds.

Of­fer­ing a spa­cious 1,350 sq ft of liv­ing space, the prop­erty has a sun­room which was added on by the own­ers. “They have been in situ for many years have kept it in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion,” reveals Mr Col­bert.

Ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a car­peted sit­ting room with a fire­place, a tiled kitchen with fit­ted units and a sun­room at the rear with tim­ber cladding and views of the gar­den and the beach. The prop­erty has one ground floor bed­room while up­stairs there’s a bath­room and three bed­rooms.

Fit­ted with both oil and elec­tric heat­ing and dou­ble glazed win­dows it has a C3 en­ergy rating.

To the front there’s a com­mu­nal gar­den with cob­ble­lock park­ing and to the rear a large pri­vate lawned gar­den en­closed by tim­ber fenc­ing. There’s a pa­tio out­side the sun­room and an­other in the bot­tom cor­ner of the gar­den.

VER­DICT: Of­fers af­ford­able and spa­cious sea­side liv­ing.
