Parking a bonus with properties

PARKING could be the key to the sale of two similarly-priced, but varied Cork city offerings with estate agent Trevor O’Sullivan of Thomas J O’Driscolls.

Two side-by-side garages off High Street come with the mid-terraced three-bed house No 26 High Street, a refurbished spot near the city centre, and with a €275,000 asking price.

And, for €295,000 Mr O’Sullivan has the top floor apartment No 59 in Trinity Court, a modern two-bed apartment, with lift access and a basement level parking spot included in its asking price.

No 26 High Street is a handily-set two-storey house, with a 20’ by 13’ living/dining room with tiled floor, there’s a 11’ by 9’ kitchen behind with new units and one of the three bedrooms is at ground level. Overhead are two bedrooms, plus bathroom, and heating is via gas.

There are schools, shops and bars all nearby, Capwell Bus Station and a bike shop are each a two minute walk in opposite directions, the city centre is less than a 10 minute walk, and not only do the garages nearby off a back lane have rental/storage potential, there’s residents’ street parking also available.

Meanwhile, the apartment at 59 Trinity Court also has scope to rent out the parking space for a bit of extra income if the buyer doesn’t need it, says the selling agent, who says the two-bed unit is very well kept with some funky design touches, while the complex’s raised courtyard garden is a bright sociable space. The top floor setting means you can see City Hall, the harbour and the Elysian tower.
