City home comes with potential for development

READY to go with planning permission to raise the roof, this cottage at Barrington’s Avenue, Blackrock, comes with great potential.

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.
