Landscape with view to potential

Trish Dromey reports on a property where TLC could work wonders

Glasheen, Cork - €270,000

Size:149 sq m (1600 sq ft)
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
BER: Pending

Quite a bit has been done to 10 Landscape Terrace in Glasheen, but much more needs to be done to turn it into the home it could be.

A period terraced house located within a five minute walk from the Lough, it is, according to Darragh Taaffe of KMS auctioneers, a very interesting property with a lot of potential.

“It has a number of original features including ornate cast iron fireplace, corniced ceiling and picture rails,’’ he says adding that it also has a kitchen extension with modern units, an attic conversion, and a new bathroom and has been fitted with double glazing. However the renovation work hasn’t been finished and it hasn’t been decorated or floored. Mr Taaffe is seeking offers of €270,000 .

“It needs TLC but is a spacious property with 1,600 sq ft accommodation space and 100-ft long garden and is in a sought-after area ,’’ he adds. At the front there’s a bay windowed sitting room with ceiling cornicing and an ornate fireplace and, beyond it, a second sitting room with a fireplace. The kitchen at the rear has modern shaker style units Someone went to huge efforts with the first floor bathroom which has an old world cast iron roll top bath with claw feet as well as a shower.

This level has three bedrooms including two with cast iron fireplaces and one with doors opening on to the roof over the kitchen. In the attic there’s a fourth bedroom with an en suite. To the rear it has an extra-long overgrown garden with a greenhouse.

VERDICT: Unfinished — but with TLC, paint and varnish, a buyer could work wonders.
