Go­ing Dutch in Dublin Pike

Ren­o­vated ‘cot­tage’is in turn key con­di­tion, says Tr­ish Dromey

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Starter Homes -

ITS rather dis­tinc­tive Dutch-style gable frontage makes Windy Cot­tage stand out from the more tra­di­tional bun­ga­lows and cot­tage at Cork’s Dublin Pike. Sell­ing agents Humphrey Ho­gan & As­so­ciates ex­pect this three bed de­tached prop­erty to at­tract at­ten­tion be­cause of its lo­ca­tion, within easy reach of the city, and its con­di­tion which is de­scribed as be­ing turn key.

Of­fer­ing 1,000sq ft of ac­com­mo­da­tion it’s an old cot­tage which has been ren­o­vated by its cur­rent own­ers. “It’s been taste­fully dec­o­rated on the in­side and has lots of char­ac­ter,’’ says Mr Ho­gan, quot­ing a guide price of €219,950.

The front door opens into a tim­ber-floored sit­ting room with tim­ber ceil­ing beams and a stone chim­ney­breast with a fire­place. Other ac­com­mo­da­tion in­cludes a guest WC as well as a tiled kitchen din­ing room at the rear with white units, green tiling and a green stove An open tread tim­ber stair­case in the hall leads to the first floor which has a bath­room and three bed­rooms with slop­ing ceil­ings and dormer win­dows.

The house has been fit­ted with dou­ble glazed win­dows and oil fired cen­tral heat­ing but has an F BER rat­ing which is some­thing a new owner may want to ad­dress.

The prop­erty only has a gar­den at the front — this is tar­ma­cked for park­ing and is en­closed by an old stone wall.

Lo­cated around the cor­ner from its lo­cal pub The Black­man, Win­dow cot­tage is within two and a half kilo­me­tres from both Black­pool and Bal­lyvolane shop­ping cen­tres and is around a 10-minute drive from the city cen­tre.

VERDICT: Dis­tinc­tive and af­ford­able de­tached cot­tage
