Con­ve­niently lo­cated within walk­ing dis­tance of Cork city cen­tre, No 117 Deer­park, Fri­ars Walk, has been dec­o­rated with a touch of style. That’s ac­cord­ing to James Col­bert of Col­bert & Co who says the three-bed mid-ter­raced prop­erty has been re­fur­bished and re­dec­o­rated to a high stan­dard by its cur­rent own­ers who have lived there for around ten years. Guid­ing at €265,000, it of­fers 1,000 sq ft of liv­ing space and, ac­cord­ing to Mr Col­bert, is at­tract­ing good view­ings from first-time buy­ers.

The up­graded home has a front lounge with solid oak floor­ing and a modern in­set elec­tric fire with a neu­tral colour scheme en­livened by or­ange cush­ions and some colour­ful wall prints. An arch­way opens on to an oak-floored din­ing room at the rear with more wall art and there’s also a long, nar­row, tiled kitchen fit­ted with modern cream units and a break­fast counter.

Also on the ground floor there’s a guest WC while up­stairs there’s a bath­room and three bed­rooms — in­clud­ing a box room, all with painted floor­boards. Fit­ted with gas heat­ing and dou­ble-glaz­ing, the house has a C2 BER rat­ing. The drive­way at the front as well as the back gar­den have been cob­ble­locked. En­closed be­tween an ivy-cov­ered wall on one side and a blue fence on the other, it has a blue tim­ber shed, some pot­ted plants, and bistro-style seat­ing.

Sit­u­ated close to schools and shops, the prop­erty is within a 15-20 minute from the city cen­tre. In March, No 42, a sim­i­lar-sized mid-ter­race prop­erty is recorded on the Prop­erty Price Reg­is­ter as hav­ing sold for €257,000.
