WHAT a find — but, you have to find it first.

Ex­actly as agent Andy Moore de­scribes, this mid-ter­raced honey of a home is “tucked away, in a quiet cul-de- sac, in an en­v­i­ron not de­void of wood­land”.

Add in a Bar­ring­tons Av­enue cul de sac set­ting, off Cork City’s hotly-pur­sued Black­rock Road by Ballintem­ple, a sub-€300,000 ask­ing price, and, you can ex­pect hordes now to be able to track down this lo­ca­tion.

For sale for the first time in half a cen­tury, this well-minded fam­ily-owned com­pact home has had gen­tle up­grades for com­fort and a bit of ex­tra space. So, it has dou­ble glaz­ing, gas cen­tral heat­ing, and rear sin­gle storey ex­ten­sion for din­ing and seat­ing, off the gal­ley kitchen, with a view over a com­pact decked, low-main­te­nance back gar­den.

At ground are two re­cep­tion rooms, each with orig­i­nal tall tim­ber fire­places/man­tles with tiled in­serts, and both the hall and kitchen have orig­i­nal en­caus­tic tiled floors.

Over­head are a shower room and two / three bed­rooms, the two larger ones have cast iron fire­places while the small one could be an op­tional nurs­ery or study.

Andy Moore says it’s got a coun­try home feel, is cosy, has video in­ter­com and alarm, walled in front gar­den and the At­lantic Pond and Ma­rina are just around the cor­ner and down a pedes­trian hill.

VER­DICT: A lit­tle cracker.
