BARRY AUCTIONEERS & VALUERS are delighted to offer this fantastic opportunity to purchase a home in a most sought-after location. Situated on the Old Blackrock Road, the property is just a 5-minute stroll from Cork’s traditional business district, South Mall, and is surrounded by an array of amenities.

The house, while in need of complete refurbishment, has immense potential. Accommodation is laid out over three floors, comprising two reception rooms, kitchen, utility room, five bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is natural gas central heating, with mains water and mains sewer. The property boasts a west-facing side garden, ideal for the summer evenings, and has the advantage of off street parking.

The property has been approved for the Vacant Property Refurbishment Grant, which provides funding to refurbish vacant and derelict homes. It can also be used to renovate properties that have not been used as residential properties before. The grant is available if you are refurbishing the vacant property both to live there, or to rent the property out (as of 1 May 2023). You can only get the grant twice. You can get one grant to refurbish a home to live in, and another for a home you are going to rent out. You will not get two grants to refurbish properties for rent. You can get a grant of up to €50,000 to renovate a vacant property and up to €70,000, if the property is derelict. The grant is funded by the Department of Housing, Local Government and Heritage through the Croí Cónaithe (Towns) Fund and you apply to your local authority.

There is the added benefit of full planning permission for two apartments, fully fire certified. Planning reference 22/41074.

This project is ideal for an investor or someone who is looking for a sizeable home in the city centre. Please contact Agent for more details.
