A real taste of garden heaven

WHY buy an apartment when you can have your own house and a huge 75’ garden instead? That’s basically the pitch that auctioneer, Gillian Dunne is making for number 2, Adelaide Terrace on Limerick’s Henry Street.

This terraced period property is in immaculate condition and has a very attractive, front garden with rear access from a small yard.

Everything that could be done to this house has been done, she says, and the property is on the market for offers in the region of €254,000.

High ceilings, long windows and lots of light are some of the features and the house comes with original fireplaces and polished wooden floors.

With just under 800 sq ft of space, this isn’t a big house, but because of its position in the centre of the city, it’s ideal as a starter or retirement home and has the kind of seclusion not available with an apartment.

Basically, the house is a two-up, two-down, but that’s to sell it short. The front drawing room has an immediate grandeur and is decorated with understated cream furnishings, with built in bookshelves on either side of the old fireplace.

Two bedrooms and a bathroom take up the first floor. The property is available to view through Sherry FitzGerald O’Malley.
