Rochestown, Cork €395,000
128 sq m (1,379 sq ft)
DATING to the early 1990s, the houses at Kiltegan, off Cork’s Rochestown Road and built in the former grounds of the Kiltegan Fathers lands, are always popular sellers, but at 25 years old, some are more than showing their age. That’s not the case at 23 Kiltegan Park, say the selling agents Sherry Fitzgerald, as they end the first week of open viewings at the clean, updated four-bed detached, in a cul-de-sac.
Paul O’shea of Sherry Fitzgerald says the 1,379 sq ft No 23 — guiding at €395,000 — has an extended kitchen to the back, now linking across the full width of the house to a dining area where there’s a Silestone fireplace as well as a Silestone tops on the gloss units, and again, the front reception has a curvy Silestone fireplace. Also at ground is a utility, guest WC, and playroom/home office, while the front porch has been closed in with a stout modern door and glazed side panels for extra internal comfort.
Overhead, the rear master bedroom is en suite, the walled-in back garden faces south with patio and steel shed and the neighbouring Delford development is over the side wall to the east.
Kiltegan is within a walk of Douglas village, is on a bus route and the city’s ring road network is 600 metres away.
VERDICT: A fresh update in Kiltegan.
