Cute townhouse within walking distance of Cork city

NUMBER 2 Willow Court, Cross Douglas Road, fills a number of criteria: it’s perfect for downsizers or first-timers, it’s a walk to town and it’s in a good area.

The townhouse offers the convenience of an apartment in an old neighbourhood with excellent local amenities — there’s even a Joup (juice and soup shop) just up the road.

Number 2 is part of a little enclave of eighties houses just off the main road and its entrance to the estate is flanked by two magnificent willow trees — hence the name.

It has parking to the front and a lush, tree-lined garden to the rear, which offers great privacy, says Hugh McPhillips of Marshs.

He’s guiding the two-bed property at €380,000. The ground floor is a bright and open space with a lounge and dining area combined. Fitted with white painted bookshelves and French doors to the garden, it measures a generous, 31’ by 15’ with a kitchen alcove overlooking the front garden.

This 10’ by 9’ space is fully fitted and can be closed off behind double doors when not in use.

Access from the car park is via a small reception hall with the staircase leading to two, first-floor bedrooms and a bathroom.

The master bedroom has a separate dressing room with built-in wardrobes and this could convert to an en suite room.

The second bedroom comes with a vanity unit and built-in wardrobe and there’s a separate main bathroom.

Gas heating is installed, as well as Phone Watch and there’s a dedicated space to the front of the house.

Well worth a look for buyers in this category.
