Ideal location

ALL boarded up right now, but a manageable renovation all the same, is 1, Lough Villas, overlooking Cork city’s Lough wildfowl sanctuary.

The period-style end terrace 1,350 sq ft house might look like an ugly ducking with its ‘blind’ windows, but could become a swan – it’s core is good, and the location is ace, say agents Sherry FitzGerald. On a cul de sac, it has gardens across the common approach roadway down towards the amenity area and popular public walk.

They seek offers around €250,000 for the vacant property, with four bedrooms, three reception rooms, back yard with outhouses and front garden with garage.
