In a charming fish and chip shop for sale for just €89,000 – but there’s a big catch
AN old fish and chip shop has hit the market in Co Cork for just €89,000 – but there’s a big catch inside.
Formerly McGrath’s Traditional Fish & Chips, the old diner is now being sold as a residential property.
Quaint four bedroom townhouse is situated on Main Street in Kildorrery, Co Cork.
On the outside, the old shop sign remains above the door and the large shop window is still there.
The building is painted white with contrasting black-lined windows.
There are two front doors – one into the former snack bar and another leading to the bedrooms and the rest of the house.
But there’s a big catch, and it’s not just fish.
The old shredder is still completely equipped with the former transport equipment.
Inside remains a kitchen with deep fryers, commercial freezers and utensils.
All of the old equipment is still there and gives an insight into the former function of the property.
It looks like no one has left as the kitchen is filled with items that were once used to serve food.
There is also the old snack bar where orders were once placed.
A large blackboard hangs on the wall with the menu still on it.
Any potential buyer would have a lot of work to do ripping out the kitchen and installing a new one.
Apart from that, the property is listed as having four bedrooms and two bathrooms.
But that’s not all – these rooms are all in a state of incomplete rubble.
With doors off their hinges, torn walls, stripped floorboards and stripped wallpaper, this property is definitely a fixer-upper.
Large scraps of wood and other materials lie in heaps on the floor and against the walls.
A new owner would need to completely redesign the sleeping and living areas.
But it means there’s plenty of potential for renovation work.
A blank canvas, any potential buyer could make anything out of the old chopper.
Some of the walls have already been torn down and the demolition of the old store is making room for the expansion of the current living space.
A new modern kitchen could be fitted and the bar area has the potential to become a dining room.
