There are a lot of original features left in the early-to-mid 1900s semi-d called Mount Carmel, up in Cork city’s Montenotte suburbs.

New to market, it’s a three-bed with part-brick facade which warms the visual look of the facade, and inside there is almost 1,100 sq ft, within an uphill walk of the city centre.

Estate agent Jarlath Boyd of Timothy Sullivan Associates guides at €240,000 and notes it has two reception rooms, kitchen with antique pine units, and a hall with original terrazzo floor (currently covered over by wood laminate flooring).

Overhead are three bedrooms with pine floors and main family bathroom, with shower. The front reception room has a bay window, and tiled traditional fireplace with tall, dark wood surround, and the back room has a white, 1960s-style- tiled fireplace, and varnished pine floor.

There’s off-street parking, and side access at Mount Carmel to a decent-sized back garden, walled-in, with a good amount of deck above a lower tier of lawn, plus garage to the side.

VERDICT: St Anne’s Road is ever-popular, among a group of blessed suburban Montenotte/ St Lukes area roads named after saints such as Anne, Joseph and Christopher.
