Cork home with views of the River Lee and beyond on the market for €420k
Bellevue Terrace, €420,000
The houses of Bellevue Terrace, in St Luke's in Cork, have their backs to the street.
In fact, the only hint that they're there is a plaque that reads 'Bellevue Terrace, built by Hugh Flanagin'.
They're set on a little cul de sac accessed from Bellevue Park and because of their elevated position facing south, they have long views over the city to the River Lee and beyond.
Number 3 Bellevue Terrace, known as 'Belvedere', still has its original features including high ceilings with cornicing and ornate plasterwork and centre roses, window shutters and original fireplaces.
Belvedere is 2,500 sq ft in size on three storeys, with six bedrooms and two formal reception rooms on the ground floor, off the terrazzo-tiled hallway.
One of these is a sitting room with a bay window and marble and tile fireplace.
The other is a dining room, reached from the sitting room via double doors, which has a cast iron and tiled fireplace. The kitchen is also on this level, and has white fitted cabinets and, unfortunately, a PVC back door. And there's a utility room.
Up the open-string staircase on the first-floor return there are two indeterminate rooms, both with cast-iron fireplaces. Currently they're described as store rooms, though they might be used as a study and bedroom or bathroom instead. There is already a bathroom on this level, but it's the only one.
Then on the first floor proper are three bedrooms including the master bedrooms, where there are two windows and a fireplace. The other three bedrooms are on the second floor.
'Belvedere' has two front gardens, facing south, with a parking area. There are two outbuildings in the back yard, and pedestrian access from there to Bellevue Park.
'Belvedere' is for sale for €420,000 with James G Coughlan & Associates in Cork (021) 425 1500.
