Starter home: Wallaces Avenue, Cork €245,000

SHEER city and suburban convenience comes with 9, Wallaces Avenue, a terraced four-bed with a trump card up its sleeve — or rather in its back yard.

There’s a little-visited lane up the back of these century-old three-storey red-bricks, which means you can access them off Cork’s Boreenmnana Road, with private yard parking for two cars. Agents ERA Downey McCarthy guide upgraded No 9 at €245,000.

VERDICT: Shops, bar, schools, church and public parks are all adjacent. Cork city centre’s a walk away.
