By George — or, buy Georgehurst? This well-set, older style 1930s semi-detached cottage is on a great plot on Cork City’s Magazine Road, just opposite St Francis’s Avenue, and so is near UCC, the Bons, and the city’s amenities.
It all needs doing up, and apart from the key location has a south-facing, walled-in rear garden, with lots of room for extension. Agent Stephen Clarke of REA O’Donoghue Clarke seeks offers of €195,000 and says it’s perfect as a first home, or for investors who are inching their way back into the market.
Great if you get planing to remove part of the front wall for parking, and for getting the builders in off the road.

This three-bed bungalow at Carrigeen, about 10 miles from Waterford city, could be a home for life — with the 25 kms of glorious Copper Coast only a few miles away, it’s a real lifestyle option.
Built 10 years ago, it’s for sale with REA O’Shea O’Toole, who say it’s built to a higher than average spec, with higher ceilings, is bright, has a conservatory, floored attic and a detached garage, as well as a greenhouse.
Highly adaptable for all ages and family life cycles.
