Live in Victorian style in the heart of Cork city

THIS Victorian townhouse sold in the height of the boom for a sum in the mid-70s, but it took over a year to bring to contract and then the buyer backed out.

At no 4 Newenham Terrace, the family that occupied the four-storey townhouse have moved out — and with them, their furniture, in the expectation of a sale going through.

The property is now back on the market with Gerard O’Dea and Maurice Cohalan of Cohalan Downing and Associates and will go to auction on March 12.

The short, sharp shock approach should see this house make in the low to mid-€600,000s, he says, and he points out the major selling points of this large property.

Located on Infirmary Road, it’s a rather regal place, with high ceilings and wall space crying out for paintings.

Not only does it have a rear entrance and its own square of grass in the middle of the city, it has four designated parking spaces to the front.

Then, there is the scale of the property — high ceilings, big, but manageable rooms and a south-west aspect to the rear, which is crying out for a sunroom.

It has a playroom extension in situ, but as it’s the brightest part of the house, it would work beautifully as a kitchen.

The area is city centre, but residential. The Victoria Hospital is across the road and next door is the South Terrace apartment complex. Behind is the gorgeous St John’s College Building.

No 4 Newenham Terrace is ideal, not only in terms of style, but also convenience.
