Agent DNG 
This two-bedroom single-storey mid-terrace property, though not large at 49sq m (527sq ft) has room to extend in the rear garden – subject to planning. While it is in good condition, a new floor covering will be needed in the principal bedroom. It is located in a quiet mature cul-de-sac close to Lusk Village, schools, sports facilities and clubs. The property is convenient to Dublin Airport, the local train station and the nearest beach at Skerries is 8km away. 
Plus In good order for downsizers or those starting on the property ladder

Address 1 Seaview Court, Courtmacsherry, west Cork 
Agent Hodnett Forde 
This coastal bolthole is one of three converted units in a lovely period property. Number 1 has the benefit of sea views, and the house is inverted whereby the two bedrooms are on the ground floor, and the living/dining area is overhead to maximise the views. Though not large – it extends to 53sq m (568sq ft) – there is further space in the floored attic. As it is located on a popular stretch of the west Cork coastline, there is income potential. 
Plus Delightful coastal bolthole
