They say good things come in small packages.
And if you’re looking for a cosy bolthole right in the city centre, there’s a little home with a big personality awaiting your visit on one of Cork’s most historic streets.
Originally built in the 1900s, No. 24 Vicar Street has been completely gutted and transformed into a bright, tranquil space geared towards modern city living.
While agents Sherry FitzGerald admit it’s definitely a contender for one of Ireland’s smallest homes, they say it’s bursting with charm and character.
“The studio is completely open plan with a mezzanine storage area,” says David Donovan of Sherry Fitzgerald.
“The floor has a classic herringbone wood effect tile throughout. The kitchen was designed and completed to an exquisite standard by Celtic Interiors and has an integrated dishwasher and washer/dryer along with a double sink.”
While it might be small, this is not a property that’s short on little luxuries; the bathroom features a three-piece rain shower suite, fully tiled with a window for natural light and ventilation.
There’s even a teeny tiny outdoor space; the custom-made patio glass door allows the natural light to flood in and leads to a little private courtyard with stone slate tiles – just enough space for a table to enjoy your morning coffee.
“Location here is paramount,” adds Donovan.
“Being within walking distance of everything Cork City has to offer. It is a stone’s throw from the stunning St. Finbarr’s Cathedral and Elizabeth Fort. It is a few minutes walk to Cork’s biggest tourist attraction, The Nano Nagle Centre and the famous Tom Barry’s pub along with all the quirky cafes and restaurant Barracks Street and Douglas Street have to offer.”
