A mew’s house in Cork’s Montenotte is a turnkey proposition, says Tommy Barker
FANCY being amused in Cork’s Montenotte — if so, then living here in a mews-converted stable will certainly provide for some horse laughs.
Up for sale as a turnkey proposition is 4A, The Stables, a groomed mews property in a quiet area within a short trot of the city centre via the Middle Glanmire Road.
Estate agent Michael O’Donovan of Sherry FitzGerald pins a €275,000 price tag to the surprising 1,200 sq ft of space, with a contemporary flair to its decor.
There’s no boxiness to the main living quarters, with the main room a good 18’ by 14’, and a bit of an eye-catcher is a corner section that rises full height to the next level, and overlooked from the main bedroom through a feature glass block wall. The living room has a double aspect, with French doors to the back yard, plus an open fireplace.
The kitchen has tiled floors, and off that again is a dining room and a utility.
Upstairs two of the three bedrooms are doubles, one is en suite, and the main bathroom has a shower over bath.
No 4A is ready to move into, and has laminate wood floors, unabashed solid colours from deep yellows through mauves and terracotta red on its walls.
VERDICT: Perfect for those who don’t want a boring box home. Don’t spare the horses.
