NO 8, The Close at Maryborough Ridge in Douglas has all the trappings of a well-kept home including colourful pot plants inside and numerous hanging baskets and planters in the garden.
Guiding at €250,000, the two bed, mid-terrace house is new to the market with Thomas J O’Driscoll auctioneers who say the 2008 built 900 sq ft house has been decorated to a very high standard.
Although it has the standard of décor that’s normally associated with owner-occupiers this property has until now been in the hands of a Polish tenant who decorated and repainted regularly, landscaped the garden and even built the shed.
Ground floor accommodation includes a kitchen/dining room with fitted units and tiled flooring. There’s also a guest WC and a carpeted sitting room with a fireplace and French doors opening in to the back garden.
The first floor has two carpeted bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and en suites, one with a bath and one with a shower.
Fitted with gas heating, the property has a C3 energy rating. To the rear there’s a south facing garden with a well tended lawn, numerous planters, handing baskets and pot plants and a concrete shed in the corner.
Auctioneer Olivia O’Leary says there’s always good demand for properties in Maryborough Ridge which is a little over two kilometres from shops and amenities in Douglas village.
She expects this one to appeal to both first time buyers and investors.
