Attractive Carrigtwohill semi-d in ‘walk-in’ condition ideal for first-timers

Trish Dromey says this modern, three-bedroomed semi is in a family-friendly estate close to all the amenities of Carrigtwohill village.    

NO 1 An Caíreál is the type of property which is selling well to first-time buyers working in the Carrigtwohill and Little Island areas.

“It’s in the Cúl Árd estate which is a popular well established residential estate within walking distance of the village, the train station and all amenities,’’ says Adrianna Hegarty of Hegarty Properties who is guiding it at €220,000. 

She says the 936 sq ft three-bed semi has been very well maintained by a family which is now planning to trade up and is in “walk-in” condition.

Situated in a cul-de-sac overlooking a green area, the house was guilt in 2004 and has a C3 BER rating.

To the front with a bay window and a fireplace is a wooden-floored sitting room and to the rear, a kitchen/dining room with shaker style maple fitted units and an integrated oven.

The owners are leaving some of the kitchen furniture — including the table and chairs — which will be welcomed by first-time buyers

The house has an understairs guest WC and on the first floor a bathroom and three laminate-floored bedrooms including a box room. 

The largest bedroom is at the front and has an en suite and fitted wardrobes.

Out front there’s parking space for two cars while the property has a back garden with a patio.

Ms Hegarty says most interest is likely to come from first-time buyers but believes some investors may also come for a look.

Verdict: A new home in the New Year for a young couple.
