Great options for buyers

WITH its great location the small home St John’s on Barrington’s Avenue off Cork’s Blackrock Road could make a good starter home for a young buyer or couple who’d then have the option of renting it out later on if they wanted to trade up.

That’s according to auctioneer Gerard O’Dea of Downing Commercial as he puts the two-bedroomed, older style house on the market seeking offers close to its €210,000 AMV.

Near the Marina and Atlantic Pond, as well as services in both Ballintemple and Blackrock village, the location is tops, he stresses. Built on the side of a larger property, it has a ground floor living room with fireplace, kitchenette and ground floor bathroom, and overhead are two small bedrooms.

It’s all on the compact side, and there’s enclosed outdoor space by the front door of this little nesting spot.
