The perfect terraced property atop city’s Wyse’s Hill

A SPREADING chestnut tree roots Landscape Terrace to its prime Cork city suburbans spot.

This line of slate-hung homes with abundant autumn conkers at its doorsteps is at the top of Wyse’s Hill, at the start of the mid-hill ridge that forms Sunday’s Well Road and its lines of desirable homes.

Available again on this line of period homes with views is the smart order no 4, a three-bed mid-terrace home being sold by its engineer owner, a professional background which should give confidence to those wary of older properties.

Nos 4 and 5 were marketed several months ago by estate agent John Sullivan, and while the sale of the smaller house no 5 went through some weeks ago, the deal on 4 didn’t finalise. Hence, its arrival back on the market prior to Christmas, with the same agent, who stresses its convenience, quality and features like high ceilings, and the views he says speak for themselves.

We’ll echo them here, though, as a taster: full-on southerly, looking over to the County Hall and CUH to the west, and to the harbour to the east, with the city all spread out underneath, beckoning to walkers, city workers, shoppers and college academics and medics who can stroll down to work from here.

For the more indolent, there’s one car parking space for each Landscape Terrace resident. Guide price for no 4 is €370,000-plus, and it exceeded this figure in the previous sale agreed, so think on the plus side if you want to pick it up smartly.

Accommodation includes an attractive entrance hallway, large family reception room with period architectural features, 23’ by 11’ kitchen/dining with breakfast bar, utility, and three carpeted first floor bedrooms overhead, with main bathroom.

Central heating is gas-fired, and the sunny front garden area is pleasantly planted, while there’s a back yard with steps up to Sunday’s Well Avenue behind.
