Extension’s the thing at this Liscannor semi-d

A GREAT, bright extension to the back is going to impress at this Castleview, Liscannor, Co Clare, three-bed semi.

For sale with Danielle Kavangah of Sherry FitzGerald Mahon with a €185,000 asking price, it’s No 1 in an enclave of 14 homes, mostly privately owned second houses, in the coastal village, an easy walk to amenities and just beyond the church.

The local wormy Liscannor flag stones feature in the high, ‘butterfly’ inverted pitch roof extension as feature window seating. With its tall glazed walls and windows, this contemporary-take extension wraps around part of the back and side of the house, sheltering a barbecue area with dry stone walling.

Inside, it has a ground floor en suite master bedroom and two more overhead bedrooms, one of these is also en suite and main bathroom, and downstairs there’s a kitchen with sea views, solid wood units and access to the barbecue area, a living room, utility, and dining area opening via an almost circular arch to a sun room and seating space.

Ms Kavanagh says it’s great value.
