Rushbrooke residences boast impressive interiors and great views

TWO Cobh period-style homes, each with attractive interiors, are on offer with local estate agent Johanna Murphy for less than €600,000 apiece.

No 7 Rushbrooke Terrace, elevated, and with some Cork harbour and dockyard views, dates to the 1800s and has Victorian styling, linked ground floor reception rooms, four bedrooms, attic rooms and stepped or tiered gardens.

In good overall condition, it has an asking price of €585,000 and recently had a garage and new car port added to the rear. A large semi-d, it has shared access from the road via a few steps, and most of the ground floor rooms have parquet flooring.

Although most of the windows have been changed from the original to double glazed units, there are shutters on a number of windows, internal doors are in pitch pine, and there’s a good range of original fireplaces, plus oil central heating.

Back on the market after a stalled sale, with a price tag of €575,000, is No 2 Norwood Villas, also in Rushbrooke. A very attractive semi, it is part of four grouped similar homes of character, with views across the harbour to Monkstown.

It needs some modernisation, but has basic good bones, has been recently re-roofed and a plus is the garden layout and its space.

It has five bedrooms, attic rooms too, and two main reception rooms, dining room, kitchen and scullery.
