Blackrock cottage: An ideal first-time buy

RIGHT address and a good price too — this two-bed cottage in Barrington’s Avenue in Cork’s Blackrock is clear, first-time buyer stuff.

As a house its in very good condition, says Jennifer Bermingham, of Noelle Morrison Properties and as an investment, its guaranteed to appreciate.

Priced at €200,000, it comes with an open plan living room/kitchen and has a separate sitting room with fireplace.

There’s also a well equipped utility room, bathroom and two decent bedrooms on the upper floor. To the rear is a small yard.

However, as the house is just next door to the Atlantic Pond, open spaces aren’t a problem and the many blandishments of Douglas are a short drive away.
