On the hunt for a home by the sea?
The pandemic has seen a surge in house hunters seeking out coastal properties, but if you’re quick off the mark you can still find a gem with ocean views at an affordable price in Cork.
Case in point: this spacious Georgian family home, perched right on the waterfront in Youghal, currently guiding at €330,000.
Built in the 1850s, No. 3 Gibraltar Terrace, Lighthouse Road is a handsome three-bedroom, two-bathroom period property of 120sqm laid out over three levels.
It’s in great condition, so a little modernisation will go a long way in turning this tall mid-terraced house into a fabulous waterside home – especially given the jaw-dropping seascapes that greet you from every turn inside.
Waking to spectacular sunrise views over Youghal Bay from the comfort of their bed, the lucky buyer will enjoy sumptuous views of the rolling sea from almost every room.
While the property has already been updated with new carpeting and paint, a stylish walk-in shower, and a claw-foot soaking tub in the bathroom, many of its original features have been retained, including the beautiful cast iron fireplaces in the bedrooms.
“Just a two-minute walk to the beach, this period property has large windows and high ceilings, which give it a bright and light-filled feeling.” say the agents, Bloomfields Property.
A paved garden at the rear offers plenty of space to dry your wetsuit after you emerge from a dip out front.
