On the waterfront in Kinsale
Tommy Barker says pretty 800 sq ft house has picture window views
ALL done up, and with an aesthetic touch, is the older-era townhouse, no 3 St John’s Terrace, overlooking the waterfront in Kinsale harbour.
A boat/bow-shaped porch acts as the entry point to the mid-terraced two/three-bed home, which is just over 800 sq ft in size — not too large, but very well-placed, with front patio garden, and rear, tiered gardens.
Estate agent Mark Gosling, of Behan Irwin Gosling, prices No 3 at €190,000 and says it’s within an easy walk of the town’s amenities, and is even closer to the yacht club, marina and piers — all the boat activity and bustle in this top tourist town. This house’s windows almost act as picture frames for the maritime activity beyond, and the property is picture-perfect, as well, says Mr Gosling: “it’s renovated throughout, to the highest of standards,” he says, having been re-wired, re-plumbed, re-plastered and fully insulated to a decent, C1 BER rating level.
There’s a hall with Amtico floor, kitchen/dining with new units, living rom with Amtico flooring and gas-insert fireplace, family room or optional third bedroom, and overhead are two main bedrooms, plus bathroom.
VERDICT: Prime Kinsale pitch.
