ONE of those elegant Victorians on the north side of Cork city, no 6 Árd na Gréine, St Luke’s, is a three-storey end of row property with some TLC required.
However, the guide price of €415,000 reflects the work involved, according to John Barry of Keane Mahony Smith, who adds that the property has some “fantastic original details”.
And while most of the old sash windows are gone, the house comes with tiling, fireplaces, floorboards and other period features, along with high ceilings.
Carved up into smaller bedroom units, it nonetheless has a living room and dining room that remained unchanged and there’s a kitchen with utility on the ground floor.
The front bedroom is now in two rooms, but stud partitions could be knocked to create a formal drawing room or master suite on floor one. There’s a bathroom on the first floor return, two other bedrooms at first floor level and three more in the attic, all with fireplaces.
There’s an enclosed yard at the rear and behind it, a high, 60’ garden. And, because the house is end of row, there’s a side access included. The only snag is parking, as the house are set high above the road with a pedestrian walkway to the front.
