Starter home: St Lukes, Cork €200,000

For someone willing to take on a renovation project, 5 Ard Alainn, Ballyhooley Road, in St Luke’s Cross has lots to recommend it.

Size: 135 sq m (1,453 sq ft)

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


There’s its attractive mid terraced Victorian appearance as well as the spacious living space stretching to more than 1,400 sq ft over three floors and there’s the fact that it’s within walking distance of the city centre.

The downside is that the house is currently divided into three apartments.

The expectation of Murray Browne auctioneers, who are guiding it at €200,000, is that it will be turned back into one attractive home by an owner occupier.

VERDICT: TLC could work wonders here.
