Practically hidden away, yet in the centre of College Road’s major players UCC and the Bon Secours hospital in Cork, is Brookfield Mews — blink, and you’ll miss it.
There’s just four two-bed apartments in this one-off building, and now No 4 is for sale, with 820 sq ft of space, for a €175,000 AMV with agents Frank V Murphy & Co. They report good investor interest recently in this area, given the UCC factor (and fears over the euro currency’s stability,) and in the past few days went ‘sale agreed’ on a renovated terraced three bed that went over its €190,000 AMV, to tip the €200,000 mark with an investor buyer.
Nicely set in the same vicinity is 4 Brookfield Mews. It’s got a lawn area in front to look at (‘cos No 4’s on the upper floor), with independent access, parking for two cars and there’s gas central heating and double glazing: each of the occupants here has a €900 pa service charge for maintenance, and the building’s just been underpinned.
In good overall order, No 4 has a 18’ by 14’ living/dining area, with dining table in the front bay, there’s a small kitchen, bathroom and two bedrooms with built-is.
VERDICT: One of the quieter spots on College Road.
