Old Blackrock Road, Cork €220,000

This very central two-bed mid-terraced cottage at 25 Old Blackrock Road secured an almost immediate bid of its €220,000 asking price.

Selling agents Jeremy Murphy & Associates say there has been huge interest in the property which is located within a 10-minute walk from the city centre.

“It’s in good condition although the BER rating of F needs upgrading,” says auctioneer Fiona Waldron who showed it 19 times in the first week, mostly to first-time buyers.

VERDICT: Compact, central and affordable.
