Home a bit out of the ordinary

A GREAT, bright west-facing extension lifts No 4, The Terrace near Crab Lane national school in Cork a bit out of the ordinary — and brings its floor area up to 1,230 sq ft.

The 1970s/80s-built two-bed home is a new market arrival, at a shade under the €300k mark, with a €297,500 AMV quoted by agent Timothy Sullivan.

Setting is just off the Boreenmanna Road by Páirc Ui Rinn, and the narrow Crab Lane links up to the Blackrock Road at its other end by the African Missions. Either main road makes for an easy enough walk to the city centre, or a two-minute spin by car to the south city link road.

No 4 has a lawned front garden, with a drive along it and the side of the house to a back yard which is home to around a dozen compact garages, one presumably per house resident.

It means a small privacy compromise in the front, but the compact patioed back garden with hard landscaping and planting is fully private thanks to a high screening wall. There’s a gate entrance from the rear parking area and assigned garage to the gardens. Inside there’s a 22’ by 15’ sitting room, a bright, high-ceilinged 18’ by 16’ kitchen/breakfast space, utility and guest WC, and overhead are two bedrooms, one with en suite, and main bathroom.
