Glasheen, Cork €245,000

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Property -

When the first and only-ever owner of Clomona moved into her new home in the first half of the 1900s, there were fields all around her Glasheen pur­chase. Now, many decades later, it’s all houses.

Set in the sel­dom-vis­ited Glasheen Park, off Cork city’s old sub­ur­ban Glasheen Road, this bun­ga­low today sees the houses of Kil­crea Park along­side, where once was green grass and graz­ing.

Now for sale as an ex­ecu­tor es­tate of­fer, the old-style three-bed home is creat­ing quite the stir in the mar­ket, says its sell­ing agent Peter Skuse of Ca­ha­lane Skuse. He guides the c 900 sq ft de­tached house at €245,000, reck­ons he had had 50 view­ings al­ready, and adds “peo­ple sense there’s some­thing spe­cial about this home.”

Billing it as “a blank can­vas”, Mr Skuse says it’s in very orig­i­nal con­di­tion, and needs quite the re­fur­bish­ment over­haul, but the price re­flects that for the chance to buy a de­tached home of charm and scope, on a site that’s about 100’ deep and 40’ wide.

It’s west-fac­ing at the back, so any ex­ten­sion out here will be bright, and in­ter­est is com­ing from all quar­ters, first-time buy­ers, cou­ples, and traders-down, and there’s a cur­rent of­fer of €245,000.

VERDICT: Close to col­leges, hos­pi­tals and ma­jor em­ploy­ers, it’s also within a walk of the city cen­tre.
