Period home in studious location

FOR PEOPLE wishing to live in a studious environment, an opportunity has arisen to purchase a property within a stone’s throw of UCC.

The period, terraced property is located at St Marys Villas, Western Road which one of Cork’s most traditional addresses, but also an area witnessing huge new building and investment on a range of sites — most notably the old Jury’s Hotel lands. The five-bedroomed property, No 4 St Mary’s Villas, has retained many of its older features, according to negotiator with Hamilton Osborne King, John Deady, who seeks €620,000.

“It’s essentially a very spacious and airy period house. It is also very well maintained inside. Many of the older features are still in evidence. It was built in the 1800s and has beautiful high ceilings which give a great sense of space.

“It is very bright throughout the building and there would also be the possibility of converting some of the rooms in to office space,” he said.

The airy rooms provide for a lounge, drawing room, kitchen, five bedrooms over three storeys, while outside there is a walled-in yard with a door leading to a mature lawned and not-overlooked garden. Interest in the house has been steady since going on the market, according to John Deady. “We have had quite a steady level of interest from a very broad range of buyers. It could be also of interest to potential investors, or people wishing to move back in to the city.”
