There’s nearly a country cottage feel to the inside of 153 Lower Glanmire Road, in the embrace of Cork city centre near the rail station.
The mid-terraced two-bed townhouse is a 10 to 15 minute walk on the flat, directly east of the city centre, just before views of the Lee and the Marina come into play, and with its price guide around €108,000, it’s pitched at first-time buyers by Mark Gosling of Jeremy Murphy and Associates.
Mr Gosling says although it’s just currently rented, it was owner-occupied up to recently and has the sort of simple appeal that will charm other intending occupants as readily. It’s got a simple layout, with hall, 14’ by 8’ living room to the front with white marble fireplace, a similar sized rear kitchen with new units and patio/yard access, and overhead are two bedrooms and bathroom. Some of the roof trusses in the two bedrooms have been exposed.
South and road-facing to the front, there’s an enclosed rear yard, whitewashed with old stone feature alcoves, all recently repaved with patio for private outdoor space for barbecues etc.
VERDICT: No 153 shows the virtue of simplicity.
