Cute little love nest within short walk of city centre

THERE are starter homes and then there are cute little love nests, like this snug two-bed at Friar’s Walk, Cork city.

Suitable for green living residents, No 10 Annmount will also provide the right to park on street - just don’t expect to get close to your front door every day. The benefits of the location, which makes it a walk to the city centre, isn’t lost on out of town commuters who park along the narrow road.

However, for those who love the city, love to walk, and are quite happy to park their car and forget about it, then this house is worth a look.

It’s cleverly designed, has a wonderful atmosphere and just enough room for the occasional guest.

Formerly a three-bed, two bedrooms have been knocked together to provide a bright master at the front and a double bedroom behind.

The bathroom is at the bottom of the staircase and is fresh and modern and the rest of the house has an open plan, hippy-dippy layout. You can tell from the funky herbaceous border and sandstone shingle at the front, that there’s a colourful and cosy layout within.

The front door opens straight into the living room which has double fireplaces and a kitchen extension at the rear leading onto a tiny, but bright yard.

A storage shed to the side provide a handy utility space and inside, under the staircase is an airing cupboard. Everything fits.

Jeremy Murphy and Associates are seeking offers of €205,000 for this terraced gem.
