It’s bright-side out at 4 Sunview Villas – this end-terraced home has a good South Douglas Road location, with spot-on rear garden aspect, and an interior with old-house personality, plus it’s all within a short walk of Cork city centre, or within a trot too of Douglas village.
Size: 70 sq m (760 sq ft)
Bedrooms: 2 plus attic
New to market with Michael O’Donovan of Savills, No 4’s right by the pedestrian access to Christ the King girls’ secondary school, which puts it within easy access especially also of the south city link road.
No 4’s an end-terrace home with two first-floor bedrooms, one front, one back, plus bathroom, and all have old cast iron fireplaces, while the top floor is given over to an attic conversion, 17’ by 10’ under sloping, warm-looking pine-panelled ceilings and the roof was replaced only five years ago.
Guiding at €265,000, Mr O’Donovan says the house, which is about 760 sq ft over its lower two levels, is stylish and in good decorative order.
Its ground floor has a hall with original tiling, front sitting room with open fireplace, a rear modern kitchen/diner, with wood units.
Garden access is via the utility, and the south-facing back has a raised deck, secure boundaries painted up and a painted garden shed, while there’s mature fruit trees too.
VERDICT: Character in spades
