Even with the fall in values over the past five years, €90,000 doesn’t sound half bad for a city pad with three bedrooms — so, how about two houses for that?
On Limerick city’s Wolfe Tone Street, house hunters, handy DIYers and small builder looking to turn a buck should cast an eye up and down Wolfe Tone Terrace, where two terraced homes needing doing up can be bought for knock-down sums.
No 1 carries an asking price of €40,000, and is even open to offers under that sum, via agent Brian Nestor of Nestor Shanahan Auctioneers.
The location is super-convenient, just off the Roxboro Road south of the Milk Market. Mr Nestor dates it to 1885, and says it needs a pretty full refurbishment and upgrading. It has one upstairs bedrooms, two downstairs, and an outside toilet.
In better overall condition, but still needing a good deal of work, is No 5 Wolfe Tone Terrace, a similar era and sized dwelling just up the way. It too has a small front garden sliver, a bigger back garden, one upstairs bedroom and an attic store area.
Selling agent Tom Hickey of Hickey O’Donoghue, says the location is superb.
It’s nearly as easy to do two up as one.....
