NO 64, Castle Meadows, off the Skehard Road and near the Mahon Shopping Centre and Cork harbour walks, is now a large, 1,750 sq ft four-bed semi-d, after an extension and upgrade.
Listed with estate agent, Dennis Guerin, of Frank V Murphy & Co, there’s a lot of home here for the €265,000 price, after receiving a two-storey extension that included good-sized living areas into the bargain.
Modern and well-kept, with good gardens and east-west aspect, No 64 has a front sitting room that links to a rear dining area via double doors.
The kitchen-dining area is 19’ by 17’, and there’s a large family/living room, measuring 20’ by 12’, and a guest WC. Upstairs, one of the four bedrooms is en-suite, there’s a family bathroom, plus a handy walk-in store room.
No 64 stands on a decent plot, with a large expanse of rear patio and decking, and off-street parking in front, and is near the Ringmahon Road, Mahon Shopping Centre, cinema and restaurants, plus burgeoning office parks and employment hubs at City Gate.
If bought by a first-time buyer who is working locally, there would be an option to rent a bedroom or two, to cover the early mortgage years, and with its 1,750 sq ft and four bedrooms, this could be a family home for years to come.
VERDICT: The price may only buy a three-bed in need of renovation in an older suburb or nearer the city centre, while there’s 1,750 sq ft on offer here, at No 64.
