SNEAK PEEK: These new student apartments boast the best views in Cork
It sure beats a grimy bedsit bunk bed.
Still, at €9990 for a double room for the year, the first tenants of ScholarLee Mardyke will be enjoying Cork’s swankiest student accommodation.
The new development will be ready to move into this September… and its lucky residents will be enjoying the best location in the city during their time at college.
The building, which is currently under construction on the site of a former house facing the entrance to Fitzgerald’s Park, runs alongside Lane, which offers quick access to UCC’s new bridge.
The windows will offer a birds-eye view of University College Cork from one side of the building and a glimpse of one of Cork’s most picturesque parks on the other:
Students share a kitchen, lounge area with TV and laundry facilities, with a private ensuite bedroom for sleeping and studying.
All bills including electricity, gas, refuse and wi-fi built into the cost and there’ll be no complaining about messy roommates for these lucky youngsters; a complimentary cleaning service is included, covering all shared spaces including common areas every two weeks.
Jealous? Us? Never.
