Starter homes: Assumption Road, Cork €105,000

There’s great views down the Blackpool valley from the corner-sited home at 59 Mount Farran, off Cork city’s Assumption Road.

The older-style three-bed semi has a large attached garage, small front porch — and huge potential.

Agent John Barry of Frank V Murphy & Co guides at €105,000 and admits it is need of upgrading and decorating, but he says it will make a fine first home, and can grow with its new occupants.

VERDICT: A 10-15 minute walk from the city centre, and good to grow.
