Time to go back to school, and maths classes, to try and calculate the floor area of 10 The Courtyard – it’s sort like of calculating the area of a triangle.
The front view of this three-bed townhouse is, literally, only the thin end of the wedge, says agent Jarlath Boyd of Timothy Sullivan Associates: “The descriptive word ‘deceptive’ absolutely applies to this home, it just fans out from the doorway onwards, and the gardens behind spread out further, and must be twice the size of the neighbours’ gardens”.
So, as it’s about 1,000 sq ft inside, it’s a good option for a single or couple who are into their outdoors spaces, who also want a high-quality interior, and while it’s under offer, it’s shy of the €215,000 asking price: the agents reckon they need to get more people through the door to see the bigger picture.
No 10 The Courtyard on Jacobs Island is handy for anyone working in the Mahon area with thousands of new office jobs coming through there at City Gate, and the city’s ring road is also on the doorstep.
This townhouse has one of its bedrooms en suite, there’s a guest loo off the hall, and a 19’ by 15’ sitting room with patio access, along with a slick white kitchen/dining room with dark wood floor, and Belfast sink.
VERDICT: Three sides to this story.
