Midleton, Co Cork €295,000
82sq m (884sq ft)
Detached and within a ten-minute walk of Midleton’s main street, No 2 Laurel Court could appeal to both buyers on their way up the property ladder, or on their way down.
The three-bed bungalow will attract downsizers because of its size, mature location and proximity to amenities, while trade-up buyers will see an opportunity to purchase a detached property close to town, which they can extend to suit their needs.
Guiding at €295,000, the 1980s-built redbrick property has 884 sq ft of accommodation and according to selling agents Mccarthy Mcgrath has been well maintained. Auctioneer Susanne Wilkinson says the mature residential location within a few minutes from town is a key attraction.
Accommodation includes a living room with a marble fireplace as well as a 13’ by 7’ kitchen with fitted units and there’s also a bathroom and three bedrooms including a box room. The design includes an integral carport and the property has a lawned garden at the front and rear.
Ms Wilkinson says the back garden offers very good scope for expansion and several neighbouring houses have been extended. Earlier this year a much modernised and enlarged version at No 18 went on the market with a guide of €345,00.
Verdict: Detached homes this close to Midleton town centre seem to be scarce.
