Varied target market for Turners Cross property

The target market for 24 Derrynane Rd, in Cork’s Turner’s Cross, is varied: it could suit a trader in, a trader down, or a first-time buyer, especially given its €285,000 asking price.

The renovated mid-1900s three-bed home is extended to the back, with a run front-to back of living/dining and kitchen, and is all modernised inside, so it’s a walk-in job for its next owners, reckons estate agent Johnny O’Flynn of Sherry FitzGerald.

The road has a mix of pairs of semi-ds and some short runs of terraced homes, and No 24 is a semi with off-road parking next to a small lawn, while behind the garden is a mix of paving and decking, with shed.

Internally, the home has just shy of 900 sq ft, with crisp kitchen in a flat-roof extension, there are two first-floor bedrooms (one’s a double, the other a single) plus an optional third/study at ground, and there’s a ground floor guest WC also, plus main family bathroom upstairs.

Heating is gas-fired and zoned, there’s an open fireplace in the front living room, and the house sale includes all appliances, and even the furniture can be bought, making it an even easier handover for No 24’s next occupants.

There’s a southerly aspect to the front and location is on one of the quiet roads between the Kinsle Rd and Evergreen Rd, within an easy walk of the city centre.

VERDICT: Smallish, but well-placed and well finished.
