New to market three-bed property is in good overall order, Tommy Barker reports.
THERE’S both soccer and rugby pitches for sports fans within a couple of minutes’ walk of 36 Derrynane Road, in Cork’s Turner’s Cross city suburb.
Or, you could just kick a ball around in the back, side or even front garden: there’s a big enough site here, some 85’ from front to back.
The mid-1900s three-bed semi-d is a new market arrival with agents Frank V Murphy & Co.
They are quoting an AMV of €215,000 for the 900 sq ft buy.
It’s in good overall order, and has kept up to date with central heating and double glazing while also keeping a feel of the house’s original era with things like old floor hall tiles and stained glass front door retained in pride of place.
No 36 has a front sitting room with bay window, with double doors to a dining room behind and both rooms have old fireplaces.
There’s a guest loo off the hall which has some feature wall panelling, and the kitchen is plumbed for washing machine, etc., as there’ s no separate utility.
Upstairs are three bedrooms, two with bay windows, plus family bathroom.
The back garden is well-kept, with crazy paving, raised beds, neat lawns and mature boundaries.
VERDICT: There’s a nice, bright open feel to No 36, helped by its inter-linked two ground floor rooms.
