No 10 Annmount boasts bright kitchen extension, Tommy Barker reports
Only a walk from Cork City centre is 10 Annmount, a renovated and extended 120-year-old townhouse on Friars Walk. And, it seems pretty much in walk-in condition too, with linked sitting room and dining room, front to back of the original house, with a timber floor in the front room, and the original red and black period tiles in the rear section. Each ‘room’ has a black cast iron fireplace and the walls are painted a strong red. Nice space.
Then, behind and open to the backroom is the kitchen extension, bright thanks to an overhead Velux in the sloping roof, with timber units and a dark tiled floor. There’s access to a yard from here, and the house’s bathroom (retiled and updated) is also here, at ground floor level.
Upstairs are two bedrooms, one to the front with two sash windows, and both rooms have built-ins, slightly raised ceilings and white painted timber floors.
There’s gas heating, and double glazing for comfort, while decor levels are good, inside and out, confidently painted and with an attracted planted, shrubbed and gravelled front garden behind the wall and railing for privacy, with a seat put out for taking the fresh air and watching the world go by.
VERDICT: Pretty inside and out, and pretty affordable too at its €135,000 asking price, via agents Timothy Sullivan Associates.
