Attractive central home just a 15-minute stroll from Cork city centre

Lorna ville at 88 Lower Friars Walk has a bigger garden and a bit more privacy that you would typically hope to find in a semi-detached property located within a 15-minute walk from the city centre.

Built in the 1950s, it was bought by the owner in 2014. 

“They renovated and redecorated it and also put in a put in a new kitchen around four years ago,” says Barry Nagle, Global Properties, who expects a lot of interest in the property.

New to the market with a guide of €290,000, it a little unusual in having its main door located at the side rather than the front. 

The house has quite a number of original features, including some picture and dado rails as well as timber floorboards which have been sanded and varnished.

The sitting room stretches the full length of the house and was probably two rooms to start with. 

It has timber flooring, a marble and teak fireplace and double doors to the garden.

VERDICT

Attractive, central and a little different.
