Tucked away towards the back of Westbury, off Sarsfield Road in Cork’s Wilton is St Catherine, or No 1 Westbury Crescent.
Backing on to Robinscourt, No 1’s a three-bedroomed semi-detached home, with a bit of extra accommodation on the side, where a slender 17’ long and less-than 8’ wide kitchen now resides in what is probably a garage conversion.
Behind, meanwhile, is a ground floor shower room by the utility and back garden access point.
There’s also rear garden access via a sliding door from the 19’ by 10’ family living/dining room, which runs across much of the rest of the back.
Also a bit different from the usual, traditional run of semi-d layouts is the back garden, done here in paving with seating set into a low brick wall with BBQ and planting sections, while the boundaries are all equally hard surfaces, walled-in with unadorned block walls.
Add in a front garden which is mostly set up for cars, with a sliver of lawn, and it’s all easy-keep.
Back inside, St Catherine/No 1 also has a front reception room, and overhead three bedrooms, one with built-ins, and a family bathroom.
Estate agent Johnny O’Flynn of Sherry FitzGerald guides the 1,285 sq ft three-bed at €265,000, and says it’s going to appeal to a range of buyers, including investors, within a walk of Wilton Shopping Centre and the CUH.
