Starter home: Evergreen Street, Cork €245,000

1 C Evergreen Mews was built at the start of this century with some upgrades since and even a nod to local history, writes Trish Dromey.

Size: 79 sq m (850 sq ft)

Bedrooms: 3

Bathrooms: 1

BER: C2

A MODERN terraced property amidst rows of 19th century ones, No 1C Evergreen Mews in Turners Cross rather unexpectedly offers up a little piece of history.

On its front wall it has a plaque which has been erected to the memory of Charles Daly and Jack O’Brien, members of the Cork No 1 Brigade of the IRA who were killed on active service in the early 1920s. 

The house was built at the start of this century, one of a terrace of three on an infill site. 

It seems possibly that this site was chosen for the plaque because of the prominence of the location directly across the road from Christ The King church.

The three-bed 850 sq ft terraced property is new to the market with Behan Irwin & Gosling auctioneers with a guide of €245,000. 

“It’s owner occupied, has a recently upgraded bathroom and is in very good decorative order,’’ says auctioneer Mark Gosling. 

At the front is a kitchen/dining room with white fitted units and to the rear a timber floored living room which has fitted bookshelves and a fireplace with a gas fire.

Upstairs there’s a bathroom and three laminate floored bedrooms including a box room. Fitted with gas heating and double glazing, the property has a C2 energy rating.

Outside the living room at the rear is a well kept paved garden area which is enclosed by blue walls and fencing and has a shed. 

The house doesn’t have off-street parking, but it’s less than a mile from the city centre and is within walking distance of a range of amenities.

VERDICT: expected to appeal to both first-time buyers and investors.
