Bungalow investment close to famed Lough

By Tommy Barker
AN even half a million euro is the asking price of a bungalow home at prettily-set Fairyville Lawn.

The location is the star attraction here at no 7, off the Lough Road by the wildfowl sanctuary the Lough, and the cul-de-sac setting makes it private and quiet ... bar the odd bird squawk.

Sales here are rare as water hen’s teeth, and if anything the address will only get more and more prized, which is why CCM Property Services are confident of their €500,000 guide price.

They say it may suit as an investment, possibly due to proximity of UCC, but the likelihood is that it will be bought privately for a couple, small family or, mot likely, as a trading-down option for some human empty nesters.

In good overall condition, and immediately extendable to the rear, it has a entrance hall, two reception rooms, compact kitchen with larger dining space, and three bedrooms, two just about doubles in size and one singe room, plus bathroom.

For those looking for extension space the garage may yield some hope, and there’s a private back garden which could easily take an extended kitchen, sun room or even open up for a two storey ad-on. Heating is by oil, and replacement windows have been fitted to the front only.
