Artisan urban houses ideally located for rent or resale

No 73 St Kevin’s Square, Cork, is renovated and extended and in great condition, for an appealing €215,000 price.

EASY to buy, easy to rent and easy to live in — that about sums up the squares of artisan houses off Barrack Street in Cork city.

They’re minutes from the city centre, small, affordable, (but never really cheap) and include valuable resident’s parking.

Through gloom and boom, these houses hold their value and are always snapped up as rental properties. It’s something about their quaintness as much as the convenience.

Right now, there are two properties on the market at St Kevin’s Square — nos 73 and 56 — and they are on offer at €215,000 and €220,000 respectively.

No 73 is a renovated and extended three-bed which is in walk-in condition. It’s on the market with Terence O’Leary of Murray Browne, who says it’s priced to sell.

It has a living room, sitting room and a fitted kitchen dining room, with utility area in the rear yard.

Overhead, there are three bedrooms, (rare enough with these houses) and a main bathroom.

No56 comes with two or three bedrooms (there’s the option of a study instead on the ground floor), as well as a living room, dining room, fitted kitchen and shower room on the ground floor.

It also comes with a back yard and is on the market with John Barry of Keane Mahony Smith, who says he is open to offers of €220,000.
