Lots of optional uses are in play at the upgraded mid-1900s bungalow 67 Uam Var Avenue, near Cork’s CIT in Bishopstown/Curraheen, and that puts it on the radar of traders down as well as traders up.
Size: 101sq m (1,087 sq ft)
Some investors also, surely, and first time buyers too, quite possibly?
Fresh-faced looking No 67 Uam Var Avenue has had work done, and tweaks too: most recently it was drains and underpinning, due to the sub-soil bogeyman of Cork’s suburbs, so an important box ticked underground as well.
Then, it has been extended slightly to the back, for a dining area with garden access off the kitchen.
In the 1990s, it had its attic converted, and so now there’s two adaptable rooms up there on top of the c 1,087 sq ft at ground level, plus there’s a main bathroom overhead. The conversion adds about an extra 500 sq ft, not enough to be described as bedroom/habitable space, however.
Estate agent Johnny O’Flynn of Sherry FitzGerald is launching No 67 at €365,000, saying the work done and space added give a good balance of day and night time uses, in a top western suburban setting near the CIT, CUH and key arterial roads.
It has two/three ground floor bedrooms, or two/three reception areas (living/family/dining) depending on occupants’ priorities, plus ground floor shower room.
Overhead under the roof there’s storage by the landing, Veluxes for light, and two further rooms, while outside is a private back garden with patio and decking
VERDICT: Wide appeal
