 FOR SALE: Residential Property«Back
N.B. IMPORTANT NOTICE!
For the past few years, we endeavoured to only advertise properties FOR SALE where we feel the GUIDE PRICE/ ASKING PRICE reflected the dramatic downturn in the market place and prices were realistic. HOWEVER in 2017 we have noticed a DRAMATIC increase in viewings and subsequent sales. Also prices in all cases have risen considerably. This is being fuelled mostly, by a very obvious shortage of property on the market - We have definitely turned the corner. So NOW is the time both to BUY and to SELL.

Built in 1810, perched above the town, boasting a garden and with busy harbour and town views, this property has absolutely everything for those who want to be in town yet away from hustle and bustle.

SOLD - 17 CHARLEMONT TERRACE, OFF WELLINGTON ROAD, CORK.
This is a "querky" little house added on to the end of an imposing GEORGIAN terrace of houses, not far from Patricks's Hill. It's huge plus is that is it very walkable to the city and all amenities. The front door opens onto a leafy, small by-road and there is parking directly in front of the property. Some time ago a refurbishment programme was started - replastering, new windows, new staircase etc. however we estimate further money shoudl be spent to complete this project and so fully realize the true potential of this unique townhouse. It is on two floors - downstairs: living room with small fireplace - a central comfortable stairscase, and galley kitchen on the far side. Stairs lead to landing with row of built in wardrobes and to the front is a bedroom just large enough for a double bed and to the rear a shower room. The windows are Georgian hense plenty of light, the kitchen is completely fitted out and it has heating. This tiny property is beautifully situated for one who doesn't drive and wants easy access to the city below. (however there is a recess immediately in front of the house which would be adequate to park one car) It is a quiet area, and would suit a single, the retired, or a busy young professional trying to jump onto the property ladder.
