CORK CITY €145,000
Sq m: 79 (850 sq ft) ft)
Only a few weeks on the market, and already under offer approaching its €145,000 asking price is 13 Frankfield Villas on Windmill Road.
Although only a few minutes walk to the city centre via Douglas Street, Windmill Road stays below most people’s radar, as it is so narrow motorists are inclined to pass it by in favour of High Street.
On the market with Diarmuid Dooley of Dooley and Howard who say it was extended and renovated in the late 1990s, it has a south-facing back garden with wide and distant views
No 13 has two reception rooms, utility/bathroom and shower room, kitchen, and three first floor bedrooms.
While it has gas central heating and double glazing, it needs a decor overhaul and modernising look.
VERDICT: Utterly convenient.
TOGHER, CORK €165,000
Sq m:101 (1,085 sq ft)
BER rating: E2
There are two attractive reception rooms at 26 Michael Fitzgerald Place, thanks to a side extension put on about 18 years ago.
This family home is five minutes walk from The Lough in Cork’s Togher and is priced at €165,000 by Kevin Barry Auctioneers, who say it has three well-decorated bedrooms, a large bathroom with Jacuzzi bath and separate shower.
It has gas heating, double glazing, alarm, front garden and west-facing back garden.
VERDICT: Perfect for the house-proud.
