There’s a mix of interest, from traders-down to first time buyers. Tommy Barker reports
You’d be better off coming to view 8 Kilbrody via the back garden — it’s a huge surprise, especially given its so-modest front approach.
This corner terraced home in Mount Oval Village is going to be a great fit for a range of buyers who want something just a little bit different.
For every buyer who wants a small, easy to keep garden, there’s another who wants something bigger and better, and for these latter house-hunters, well, roll up, and come to view before it’s gone.
The immaculate order two-bed, two-en suite home is new to market with Jeremy Murphy Associates, who guide it at €169,000 and have it under good early viewings, with a mix of interest, from traders-down to first time buyers, as well as investors.
The front approach is, literally, the thin end of the wedge, and the property more or less fans out from there to a wide sweep of lawns, and well-fenced and walled boundaries, overlooked by the mint-order 18’ by 11’ living room, and accessed from it via patio doors. Also at ground level are a kitchen/dining room, and guest WC. Overhead, both bedrooms are carpeted, and each has an en suite bathroom, the larger with bath and shower.
In walk-in order, and in a cul de sac within the large O’Flynn Construction scheme with local shops and services by Garryduff, No 8 has gas central heating, parking in front and acres for children, grand-children or pets to play around on.
VERDICT: A townhouse with country-size garden.
