The location’s good, the bungalow’s semi-detached and attractive in its own right — but the site of a third-of-an-acre is the star at Donmount.
Set near the football grounds at Turners Cross, but inside in quiet, horseshoe-shaped Mercier Park, this 1,000-plus sq ft home has been upgraded down the decades,and would take an extension of almost any size: heck, there’s almost enough space at the site’s boundary (which fringes the south city link road) for another house.
The 0.34-acre site is wedge-shaped, broadening as it goes back, and in front is a small lawn area, with off-street parking.
Selling agent is Glenn O’Connor of DNG Creedon in Douglas, who is seeking offers around €220,000.
He says it’s on one of the biggest gardens he has seen in Turners Cross; it’s highly extendable to the back in particular, with an attached garage, currently used as a plumbed utility.
Accommodation includes two reasonable-sized reception rooms, galley kitchen, two double bedrooms and a single, plus main bathroom.
VERDICT: Cork City FC could have a knock-about in the back garden prior to going across the Curragh (Kinsale) Road to a match at the Cross.
