City proximity, some original class features and opposite Ashton School.
Blackrock Road, Cork €225,000
Sq m 196 (1,820 sq ft)
There’s a characterful attic level room at 2 St Joseph’s Place (pic, left) - but, this well-set house needs renovations from this room right down to the ground floor, two levels below where, oh, wait, there’s more - there’s even a basement, three levels down.
The century-old mid-terraced house is opposite Ashton school on the city end of the Cork’s Blackrock Road, and is guided by agent Fiona Waldron of Jeremy Murphy & Associates at €225,000: getting it all ship-shape may take an overall budget closer to €300k.
Among those looking this week were first-time buyers, but also builders, and No 2 will need them in jig time.
Divided into bedsits years ago, it’s still got some original features and feel, with front, south-facing garden and small back yard with garden beyond.
VERDICT:Blackrock Road address and city proximity for small-ish money up front.
