The detached, late 1980s house is one of three similar houses in the Willowbank residential development which front on to Church Road in the Blackrock suburb: a recent sale of a three bed semi (2, The Avenue, fronting the Rockfield scheme,) saw a very strong €405,000 paid with KMS, with some bidders keener on the roadside setting than within the estate - and prepared to pay for the difference.
James Coughlan has floated Anchorage on the market seeking over €460,000, and offers have already sailed past the €480,000 mark, with €500,000 now on the horizon.
Simply put, it is a very good house, well tended and decorated in a location prized by traders up, and those keen to get back into a mature settled suburb.
Extended to the side and behind (a favourable west-facing back garden) with a well-matched add-on, it has extremely well-finished living areas, with a fine large (19’ by 15’) kitchen and dining room, with creamy ceramic tiled floor and a matching feel to the large utility room.
French doors to the garden here add to the quality of brightness of this space.
Other rooms include a lounge with maple floor and gas insert fireplace, an 18’ by 10’ family room, and the detached house has four bedrooms, with one described as an optional study.
