Quite original to its build period in the 1980s, and the O’Flynn Construction development’s original floor plan and fit-out, is the good-sized 1,170 sq ft three-bed semi-d No 75 Wainsfort, off Cork city’s suburban Rochestown Road.
The two-storey home, with front and back gardens within a walk of Douglas and easily accessed by car from the adjacent ring road nexus, has been freshened up with repainting and recarpeting done.
However, the asking price quoted of €340,000 by Ann O’Mahony and Florence Gabriel of Sherry FitzGerald Cork reflects the likelihood of imminent spending on upgrades, and energy efficiency alterations.
Right now, south-facing No 75 has its original hardwood windows, oil central heating, and an electric insert fireplace in the front reception room’s marble fireplace.
Behind, the kitchen/diner are side by side across the rear, with windows overlooking the back garden, and there’s also a utility and converted garage space, now an office/playrooms option.
Overhead are three bedrooms, plus main family bathroom.
VERDICT: There’s only three recorded sales in Wainsfort over the past three years, all over the €300k mark, the latest No 47 made €371,000. The adjacent No 74 sold in 2013 for €256,500.
