‘A period home of character, ripe for renovation’
LOCATION: It is said, that it is all about location. The property is but a stones throw from St. Lukes Cross and only a gentle amble, downtown. Montenotte is one of Cork’s premier addresses and the property is well positioned at the start of this historical residential area. All amenities are to hand, this is a great place to live.
DESCRIPTION: This end of terrace three storey period home has all of the qualities that were paramount at the time of its construction. To call the views from the first and second floors, spectacular, is not an over statement. The large windows, 10 ft. high ceilings, internal and ornate plasterwork, elegant proportions etc. were some of the prized attributes of the time. This is a most solid construct which has had a secondary ground floor add on, in more recent years. The property stands on an elevated, rock based site, both spacious and rectangular and its southern orientation allows for the permeation of light throughout. The property will appeal to those who value what a period home can offer and who wish to place their own stamp/mark thereon. The previous owners, a family, were in occupancy for the last 40 years.
