Small in size but it’s got lots to offer

FROM the outside, 14 Arnott Street resembles a nice, compact little matchbox property, but there’s a lot more beneath the surface of the 980 sq ft home, which has accommodation spread over three levels.

At ground level is the reception hall and drawing room, both of which have ornate 11 ft ceilings.

Down a short flight of stairs are the single bedroom, with direct access to the rear patio garden, and breakfast room. Also downstairs are the kitchen, also with direct access to the garden, and bathroom, both of which have tiled floors.

Number 14 is mid-terraced, at the city end of the South Circular Road, making all amenities within walking distance. Sherry FitzGerald auctioneers in Ranelagh are auctioning the property on Thursday, May 15, at 4.30pm. The asking price is in the region of €410,000, but the selling agents advise that the property is in need of modernisation.

“C’est tres chic” is a common phrase both past and present at this former French school in Bray, Co Wicklow. In recent years, the period property was bought and redeveloped into a development of 12 apartments/townhouses, one of which is now on the market with Sherry FitzGerald auctioneers in Bray for €398,000.

Number 10 Toner House is an end property with is own entrance. It is in need of no touch ups or repairs having been superbly restored and maintained. The fine balance between old and new has been struck quite successfully so that guests will feel quite safe putting their glasses on the coffee table without the worry of staining and devaluing the furniture.

BESIDES a purchase price in excess of €350,000, this waterside property in Crosshaven, Co Cork also needs investment and lots of enthusiasm from buyers to bring it back to its former glory. That’s according to selling agents, Haven Auctioneers in Carrigaline who are handling the sale of 3 Ard na Lee.

The semi-detached period house has been neglected in recent years, but there should be no problem finding takers for a property overlooking the water, and also the oldest yacht club in the world.

While number 3 is structurally sound, it does need new wiring, plumbing and general modernisation.

Ground floor rooms include the drawing room, dining room, kitchen with adjoining scullery, one bedroom and a bathroom. Upstairs are three bedrooms looking out over Drake’s Pool and the yacht club.

Outside, the front garden stretches to over 2,000 sq ft, while to the rear is another garden.
