Postage stamp cottage for €175,000

IT’S in rag order, admits auctioneer, Kenneth Hogan, but at €75,000, this postage stamp cottage has a city-centre foothold.

No 13 Rock Cottages, off Cork’s North Mall will swallow a bit more before it becomes the bijou pied a terre beloved of the boom brochures.

As it stands now, no 13 is a one-bed terraced house with a living room, kitchen, outside WC and a bedroom – and a secluded garden.

And according to Hogan, viewers will be surprised at its privacy. He’s open to offers at Jeremy Murphy and Associates.

The same agent is also selling Dundanion Cottage on Blackrock’s Church Road, a good site in a good area, he says.

The two-up, two-down has parking to the side and a bit at the back, so there could be room for a deck or small extension.

It needs complete renovation and the roadside dwelling is on offer at €150,000.
