Two ‘park’ houses are new to the September market and they exemplify the kind of house that draws in the buyers.
The first, at Browningstown, Park, is completely renovated and comes in at €320,000 and the second, at 13 Loreto Park, has four bedrooms, needs modernising and is on offer at €340,000 through Paul Reid of Sherry FitzGerald.
Ventura, Browningstown, has new windows and doors, new fascia and soffitt, new internal pine doors and a host of other extras.
Just off the main Douglas Road, viewers are already queued-up for auctioneer, Jeremy Murphy of Property Choice.
Based on other sales locally, he’s given a guide price of 320,000 for this three-bed semi, but that should rise with bidding, especially as this house is in such good condition.
It has two living rooms on the ground floor, a sitting room with bay window and Victorian fireplace, and the dining/lounge with brick and marble fireplace.
Pitch pine floors run through both rooms and the dining room leads out to a rear deck.
The kitchen has solid pine units and the detached garage houses the oil burner and acts as a utility room. Upstairs are three bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobes and the main bathroom is tastefully decorated. Gas heating is installed and Ventura has good gardens to the front and rear.
Guadalupe is off the South Douglas Road in a convenient location mid-way between the city and Douglas. A fine, big house it has good gardens to the front and rear and also, a detached garage.
Entrance it to the side and there’s a ground floor bathroom and closet off the main hallway with the staircase rising behind.
On the ground floor is an L-shaped kitchen/dining room with modern fitted units, a lounge with tiled fireplace and a separate dining room: there’s plenty of scope here to open up the internal layout.
Upstairs, four bedrooms are ranged around a large landing and a main bathroom and hot press are at the top of the stairs. Two of the bedrooms are double and the two single rooms are larger than the modern standard.
Gas fired central heating and double-glazing are already installed.
