There's a super long site, nearly 300’ from front to back, at the mid 1900s-built Lismoyle, a modest-sized semi d, in a very sought after suburban location — the Cross Douglas Road.

Set almost at the mid-point, between the main Douglas Road and the South Douglas Road, within a walk of the city centre, shops and near schools, Lismoyle’s for sale with a €335,000 asking price quoted by auctioneers Frank V Murphy & Co.

At that, it might seem almost modest for the location, but it does need modernising, and so probably reflects that, but the good news is underpinning work was done back around 2007: the need for such drains and underpinning work is a scourge of this Cork southside location, among a number of other settings.

Coming in at about 1,025 sq ft, the private home has had a ground floor guest WC/with shower added on to the back, but other than that, it’s pretty much maintained its original structure, with two ground floor reception rooms, each with fireplaces, kitchen and three first floor bedrooms plus a bathroom, needing upgrading.

It faces west to the front, with a bay window, and has off-street parking with side access to the rear, where the garden gives scope for extending.

VERDICT:

Can be bought now and worked on over time, for those on a budget.
