Room to grow at Cahernacrinn

SET on its big gardens, near the back gates of the Cork University Hospital on the Model Farm Road, and near to two third-level colleges plus technology parks and County Hall, is the mid-1900s suburban house Cahernacrinn.

Its site is over 200’, from front through the long, south-facing back garden, so there’s room to grow, and to grab the sun out the back.

The 1,450 sq ft four-bed home is new to market with Frank V Murphy & Co auctioneers who guide it at €550,000, and who say it ticks all the boxes in terms of site, location and potential. But, it also needs freshening up.

Some work has been done, so windows are now pvc double glazing, heating is via gas, there’s an alarm and kitchen was fitted quite recently, but buyers will want possibly want a higher specification house for their money in this location. Still, it can be done in time rather than straightaway, if buying and paying stamp duty puts you to the pin of a collar.

Location is near the Rendezvous bar, a short trot back to Dennehy’s Cross. and rooms include a 20’ by 11’ lounge, a slightly smaller living room, a sun room, kitchen with maple units, utility and guest WC, four overhead bedrooms and bathroom.
