Starter home: Turners Cross, Cork €210,000

No 21 Mount Pleasant Avenue in Turners Cross would do nicely for a buyer willing to roll up their sleeves and start renovating.

Guiding at €210,000, selling agents Timothy Sullivan auctioneers say the bay windowed property has original character and is well located in a mature residential area but needs modernising. 

Accommodation includes a sitting room and a dining room with high ceilings and original picture rails and a kitchen at the rear. 

Gardens at front, side and rear.

VERDICT: good character, space and potential
