Big interest in affordable terraced home in quiet cul de sac

A mid-terrace home in Cork’s St Luke’s area is within walking distance of the city centre, writes Trish Dromey

St Luke’s, Cork City - €250,000

Size: 70 sq m (753 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 1

BER: Pending

TERRACED houses in the St Luke’s area such as this one at 13 Alexander Villas are the type of properties which always appeal to first-time buyers and investors.

Although both types of buyers tend to look for affordable properties within walking distance of the city, Roy Dennehy of Dennehy auctioneers says this one is proving particularly attractive to first-time buyers.

“It’s an attractive mid-terrace property which has been extended and well cared for by the current owners who have had it for the last 30 years,” he says adding that the location at the end of a quiet cul de sac is also a draw.

Offering 753sq ft of living space the property has a front hallway which opens into a sitting room which is open plan with a kitchen dining room at the rear.

The front sitting room has semi solid maple flooring and an ornate cast iron fireplace with a coal effect gas fire and an archway leading in to a kitchen with walnut fitted units with fitted appliances.

To the rear there’s a hallway leading to a yard and also to an extension which has a small laminate floored bedroom as well as a shower room.

A stairs in the hallway leads to the first floor which has two laminate-floored bedrooms with fitted wardrobes. The property has gas heating and double glazing. To the rear, it has a small yard, and to the front, a small patio area with seating and some rose bushes.

VERDICT: Alexander Villas is located within a few minutes walk from St Luke’s Cross and is a little less than a mile from the city centre.
