Elevated views make this ideal family home

A FIVE-bed home for €275,000-plus isn’t to be sneezed at — and the uphill stroll home from the waterfront in Cobh is actually good for the lungs too.

Newly up for sale in the Cork harbour town is 44, Harbour Row, with full-on southerly and elevated views over the water, right out to the harbour’s mouth by Roches Point.

The three-storey house, painted a cheery yellow, has been renovated inside and out, and is in superb condition says Billy Casey of Casey and Kingston auctioneers in Cork city, who expects it to make over €275,000.

In previous ownership, it was laid out in three units, but its current owners have had it converted back to family use.

Rooms beyond the entrance hall include a small study, a dining room with fireplace, kitchen, cloak room and utility with WC, while the formal drawing room is up at first floor level at the front of the house and also has a fireplace, Victorian in style to match the house’s era.

The master bedroom is en suite, the second bedroom opens to a decked area behind, there’s a main bathroom and the top floor has three bedrooms. Recent improvements include rewiring, replumbing, central heating, alarm and fire alarm installation, emergency lighting, etc.
