House hunting for a city pad with all the mod cons?
If you’d rather not embark on a life of DIY weekends yourself, there are two turnkey homes awaiting your bid in one of Cork City’s coolest areas.
A trio of new houses have been cleverly built into an awkward site on Alexandra Road in trendy St Lukes by builders Laide & O’Brien.
Designed by architect Donal Hoare, No. 1 is already sold but numbers two and three are on the market starting at €545,000 and €565,000, respectively.
They look compact, but an airy lower ground floor extends the overall size to 1800 sq. ft with three large double bedrooms, a lounge and expansive kitchen/living area.
They offer the one thing city slickers go wild for too: storage.
Large built-in units, utility rooms, shelved larders and sizeable boiler rooms will lure buyers who go weak at the knees for minimalism.
The views are pretty great too and each house has a courtyard for barbecues and one designated car space.
All of this is just a two-minute stroll from a gourmet coffee at O’Keeffes Shop or a pint in Henchy’s.
