IT’S the new kid on the block — literally. This end terrace/semi-detached home No 210 B Pearse Road was built as recently as 2008 in Cork’s long-established Ballyphehane suburb, making it about 50 years younger than its neighbours.
Size: 96sq m (1,035sq ft)
Constructed in the corner garden of an existing family home, it was done to then-high building standards by a West Cork builder, who made it as warm and energy efficient as possible.
It’s got a central wood-burning stove in its main and bright open plan 25’ by 20’ living/kitchen/dining room, with flue running up by the stairs to get every last calorie of heat.
There is a study/playroom, utility and one of its three bedrooms is en suite with a walk-in robe, plus there’s an efficient heat recovery system.
Once past its small porch entrance, No 201B has a bit over 1,000 sq ft, with gardens front and side, plus rear decked space.
It’s been kept well up to spec, with a high-gloss kitchen and selling agent Jeremy Murphy guides it as a walk-in purchase at €225,000.
Location-wise, it’s quite close to Cork city centre, and also near to hand are The Lough, UCC, Musgrave Park and Turners Cross FAI pitch, with a wide choice of shops, including SuperValu and an Aldi as well as a neighbourhood cluster of shops.
VERDICT: Modern comforts
