Quirky turnkey properties are a rare treat in the city.
But if you’re on the hunt for a comfortable and compact home just a stone’s throw from the action, you might be wise to take a stroll up Richmond Hill.
Number 18 Goldsmith’s Avenue has hit the market at €295,000, offering a hefty helping of architectural ingenuity and style in its 520sq ft.
The two-bedroom, one-bathroom home has been reimagined as an upside-down house to maximise the light and views.
In case you’re unfamiliar, an upside-down home is one where the bedrooms are downstairs and the living area is up top:
“By flipping the accommodation, the now first-floor living area enjoys all the uninterrupted light and views Cork City has to offer.” say the estate agents, Cohalan Downing.
There’s a fabulous open-plan kitchen, dining, and living with spectacular views over the city skyline, and the dining space is fitted with banquet seating with large windows opening onto a terrace area.
The ground floor comprises two bedrooms and a bathroom with under-stair storage, a utility area with a washing machine, and dryer, and a drying area with ventilation.
An enclosed terrace can also be accessed off the main bedroom.
Other cool features include a 5.1-point surround sound system in the living area and bathroom with integrated ceiling and wall speakers.
“Every modern comfort has been included in this all but new build as well as maximising every opportunity for storage and space.
“The current owners and their growing family have outgrown the 520 sqft home and are excited to see it enjoyed as much as they have.”
