No 1 Harrington’s Square, Cork city

ALL done up, inside and out, is the compact, two-bed city home, Number 1, Harrington’s Square, in Cork’s Dillon’s Cross — a neat little residential spot (with a grotto) that was a childhood home of writer Frank O’Connor.

The square, off the Ballyhooley Road and up above St Luke’s Cross, has car access and some parking from a road to the back, and Cork city centre is an easy, downhill stroll away.

Number one, now fully refurbished, has a €130,000 asking price with agent David O’Driscoll, of Thomas J O’Driscoll & Co, who says it has been re-roofed, has new windows, gas heating, a new kitchen and a re-done bathroom.

It has all the essentials; sitting room with cast-iron fireplace, utility with guest bathroom, new kitchen, and two bedrooms, one to the front with a Velux, and a dormer bedroom behind, plus bathroom. There’s a small front garden and a smaller rear yard.
