Two-bed has lots of potential

FERBANE is a cute, south-facing two-bed on the Ballinlough Road, Cork city which has a side access onto the Bellair estate.

Right next door, adjacent on the side wall is Joup Café, (handy for a quick lunch) and the property is a ten-minute walk to the city centre.

It’s part of a row which has been restored and prettified over the boom with various interpretations.

Ferbane is on the market with Michael McKenna of McKenna Auctioneers for offers in the region of €220,000 and comes in a fairly un-evolved state.

There’s a small kitchen/bathroom extension at the rear, two living rooms (one with bay window) and two bedrooms overhead.

However, based on neighbouring houses, there’s the opportunity to do something really nice here – and there’s that valuable, side access to a compact, south-facing garden.
