No so much a doer-upper as a re-doer, the property is on the market at €290,000 through Noelle Morrison Properties in Cork and has comprehensive plans for re-development.
These include bringing the roof of no 1 The Cottages up to the level of neighbouring properties and re-configuring the ground floor to provide a kitchen at one side of the staircase hallway and a sitting room on the other.
The rear of the house has plans for a proper dining room with guest bathroom and separate utility. It has double doors leading onto a rear yard with sliding door access from the kitchen
Overhead, there are two bedrooms opening onto a landing with hot press and full bathroom.
Tucked off the quiet, but well located Barrington’s Avenue, this house will suit a couple looking for a bespoke city house, says Jennifer Bermingham, or it may suit a builder looking for a small project.
