Set up off the old Church Road in Cork harbour’s Passage West, the 2,100 sq ft four-bed with a sun room is on a site of a quarter of an acre, with a separate detached garage. Estate agent Timothy Sullivan guides No 4 at €295,000, and says it’s in very good overall condition.
It’s clearly spacious, and the main living area off the hall (with part-glazed wall panel, and glass door) is split level and 27’ by 12’ in all, with an arch divide, carpeted on both levels with an older-style pattern.
Separately, there’s a tiled kitchen/breakfast room with wood-beamed ceiling and timber units, and hardwood double doors open to a five-sided and tiled conservatory with low-brick walls and glazed ceiling, overlooking a patio and the rear garden.
Also at ground level is a lounge/TV room with high ceiling, fireplace and patio doors, a utility, guest WC and bedroom number four.
Overhead, meanwhile, are three more bedrooms, one of them en suite and there are views to be had over the inner harbour from elevated No 4 Avondale.
A bit of spring colour in the gardens, and some lightening of timbers inside plus a change of some flooring, would give a fresh feel to this decent dormer offer.
