bedroomed terraced home by Patricia Stokes Auctioneers & Valuers. While in need of
modernisation and upgrading the property offers its space over two levels and enjoys an enclosed
yard to the rear. This home would be an ideal first time buyer project for someone looking to live
close to all amenities. Its location within walking distance of UCC and the Bons Secours hospital
makes it an idea investment opportunity. The home has no rental history and was living it by its
owner up until recently.
