What have the Big Apple and Cork got in common?
Plenty, if you ask one Cork auctioneer.
A house positioned right on the edge of Cork’s Lough has hit the market and the property description posted by the agents, Keane Mahony Smith, is raising a smile among house hunters this morning.
No 20 Lough View Terrace, a two-bedroom, one-bathroom semi just beyond the playground at the city amenity walk is guiding at a reasonable €180,000.
The praise for the location is… effusive:
“Hyde Park- London, Central Park New York, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne and the LOUGH in Cork, all sought after beautiful City centre locations,” they say.
“This is a beautifully appointed charming home in impeccable condition in what can only be described as a one-off unique city position. Wake up to the dawn chorus, stroll around the Lough, prepare for the day mentally, return home dine alfresco in the enclosed sun-filled west facing enclosed private garden… live the dream or as they say “living the dream!”
OTT compliments aside, with a little bit of love and attention, No 20 will make a lovely home for someone who is happy to live alongside the swans.
Accessed via a side entrance to an entrance hall, the property includes a large storage area, a bright kitchen/living space with unobstructed views of the water and a living room with a stone-fronted fire surround and built-in solid fuel stove.
There’s also a private garden that isn’t overlooked, so you can have your own little outdoor hideaway as well as instant access to one of Cork’s most popular walkways.
Built around the turn of the last century, Keane Mahony Smith say the property “seemed to form part of the Hartland Est., “a daffodil empire built by the Hartland Family in the late 1800s.”
