Description3 Eglinton Place is a wonderful Georgian style property in a terrace of only five houses directly across from UCC that arrives to the market in its original form dating back to 1853 and boasts many of its original features to include fireplaces, picture rails, coving, window shutters and iron railings. The property received a new roof approximately 8 - 10 years ago.
The front of the house faces south, allowing excellent natural light to enter the house and offering gorgeous views of UCC.
Externally, there is a small lawned area to the front accessed via cast iron gate. To the rear, there is a large garden laid in lawn. There is also a garage which can be accessed by car from Mardyke walk offering private, off-street parking.
Although in good condition internally, the house does require renovation and upgrade works to bring it up to modern standards. Accommodation is well proportioned and spread over three floors. On the ground floor there is an entrance hall, living room, dining room and kitchen. Moving upstairs, there is a large bathroom on the half-landing with the main living room and a bedroom on the first floor.
Overhead, there are a further three bedrooms.
The location here is superb, being within walking distance to the abundance of services and amenities Cork City has to offer as well as having UCC and the beautiful FitzGerald park on your doorstep.
This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire a substantial period property bursting with charm and character that should not be missed.
