Special home, special price

IT has the potential to be a really cool little house, especially when you see the views and the extra-long, due south back garden.

No 149 Blarney Street in Cork looks down from one of the old market roads into greenery and the city valley. A little house, it’s nevertheless in good condition, but with a bit of flair and imagination, it could be special.

After all, it’s on the edge of Sunday’s Well, (the convent land is at the bottom of the garden) and is a short skip down hill to the Mardyke and on to UCC.

And while there is work to be done in this little one-bed dormer before any transformation, the price makes it realisable at a guide of €130,000.

Robert O’Keeffe of Irish and European says the last time he sold a terraced property on Blarney Street, it made twice that.
