Trading Up: Wilton, Cork €275,000

PURE bait for investors, with scope for upgrades and within the reach of many first-time buyers, is this mid-terraced, c 1970s three-bed townhouse at 34 Wilton Court, close to the Wilton Shopping Centre and the CUH medical complex west of Cork city.

And, while fitting the bill at €275,000, and also fitting the description of it as a townhouse, it has a little extra edge or appeal too, as equally to both sets of possible buyers, thanks to the presence of an attached/integrated garage with conversion scope.

The design here at Wilton Court sees garages projecting from beside the front doors, side by side in pairs, so an unexpected bonus is the extra bit of privacy for those arriving or departing from “thems next door”.

Once inside the door of No 34, there’s a slight feel of time having stood still, and clearly it’s been an investment property earning its keep for a while. It’s in good enough order, and has gas central heating and double glazing, but the fit-out is pretty standard, if not original to its earliest years.

That’s all reflected in the €275,000 asking price quoted by estate agent Dennis Guerin of Frank V Murphy & Co, who says it’s set in a cul de sac section of the scheme just off Sarsfields Road by the Wilton shops side entrance, facing a public green, with a fenced in, south-facing back garden with shed.

VERDICT: A blank canvas.
