Kerry Pike, Cork; €375,000

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

The name of this Kerry Pike, de­tached bun­ga­low home on a quar­ter acre of gardens is ‘Comme Je Trouve’, and it’s the Kilkenny Or­mond/but­ler fam­ily motto and crest of arms. It trans­lates as “As I Find”, mean­ing to take things as they come, or one step at a time.

Will the motto be em­braced by those house hunters for whom Kerry Pike is sud­denly on their home-buy­ing radar?

A new 144-house scheme, Clon­lara, launches in Kerry Pike today, with O’flynn Con­struc­tion (see p2) and as view­ers travel out of the city, they’ll pass Comme Je Trouve. Might they look at this one-off, as they are there, and like it, as they find it?

It’s a c 1,600 sq ft fam­ily home with 400 sq ft garage, in good or­der with cen­tral heat­ing, sunny lounge, and has one of its four bed­rooms en suite; its sell­ing agent Con Na­gle of Global Prop­er­ties guides it at €375,000, and that’s about on a price point with Clon­lara’s smaller, c 1,500 sq ft, but A-rated four-bed de­tacheds.

Mr Na­gle says it’s 200 me­tres from the na­tional school, has gas cen­tral heat­ing, and a large con­vert­ible at­tic, plus a garage, along with well-kept land­scaped gardens.

Agents Global Prop­er­ties have this fam­ily home listed with 3D vir­tual tour/walk-though on their web­site, so come and travel through Comme Je Trove, in­vites Mr Na­gle, adding “you don’t have to be a But­ler to buy”.

VERDICT: Crest of the city, at Kerry Pike
