This two-bedroom mid-terrace house at 100 Mount Nebo Avenue, Gurranabraher, Cork, has been completely renovated and is located within walking distance of Cork city centre.

The property is in excellent condition and is now a comfortable modern home that is likely to be of interest to both investors and owner- occupiers.

The renovation has included the installation of A-rated passive windows, re-wiring and re-plumbing, and the house now has a respectable BER of C1.

There is a smart new kitchen and new flooring throughout, as well as new bathrooms on both floors. The upstairs bathroom features a walk-in shower.

On the ground floor, the entrance hall has a tiled floor and the living room has been fitted with new solid oak wooden flooring. The kitchen/dining room has a tiled floor and fitted units at eye-level. There is also a guest bathroom on this level.

Upstairs, both bedrooms are doubles and fitted with wooden flooring. Included in the sale are all blinds, light fittings and appliances, meaning new owners can move straight in.

Outside, there is a decent-sized sloping garden to the rear. This is set out in grass and has the potential to be landscaped and turned into a real asset.

Gurranabraher lies on the northside of Cork City, bordering Churchfield, Shandon and Knocknaheeny.

The suburb dates from the 1930s, when city manager Philip Monahan diverted £72,000 of the funds allocated to the rebuilding of City Hall after the burning of Cork by British forces in 1920 for social housing.
