Trish Dromey checks out a residence that might suit a first-time buyer
The perfect property for a buyer who likes to sit outside but doesn’t like gardening, Number 226 The Kestrel, The Sanctuary, in Jacob’s Island offers a third-floor balcony with extensive views across Lough Mahon.
A two-bed apartment with 74sq m (802sq ft) of living space, it’s new to the market with DNG Creedon which says it is in excellent condition and is likely to appeal to buyers in search of a first home as well as investors.
Auctioneer Glen O’Connor says that earlier in the year a similar property on the floor below, Number 220, attracted good interest before being bought by a first-time buyer.
Seeking offers of €220,000 for No 226, Mr O’Connor says that apartments in the 2006 built development are popular because of their location. “Jacobs Island provides easy access to South Link Road and the Jack Lynch Tunnel and is within walking distance of Mahon Point Shopping Centre,” he said.
The main living space is a large timber-floored lounge-cum-dining room which has double doors to the balcony at one side and an opening to a kitchen with modern Shaker-style units at the other.
The apartment also has a bathroom and two carpeted bedrooms with water views including one en-suite. Outside the sitting room at the front is a tiled balcony where the owners can sit out and see the harbour views without stressing about cutting grass or hedges.
Situated in a gated complex the apartment has one designated parking space. The most recent sale in The Kestrel shown on the Property Price Register was No 216 which sold for €215,000 in August.
