Classy makeover

THE original owners of 22, Donnybrook Cottage, Donnybrook in Cork probably wouldn’t recognise the interior now. In the last year it’s been completely remodelled and renovated.

“Only the front wall and the roof were retained, everything else was redone,’’ says TJ Cronin of Irish & European auctioneers who is seeking offers of €210,000.

The newly modernised 780 sq ft house has been owner-occupied and is said to be tastefully decorated and very well maintained. To the front, there’s an oak- floored sitting room with a marble fireplace and beyond there’s a modern kitchen with fitted units and tiled flooring. There’s also a bathroom and two laminate-floored bedrooms.

The garden is located across from the house at front and includes a parking area as well as a gravel garden at a lower level with a shed. Within a 10-minute walk from Douglas, the property would make a perfect starter home.
