Property could grow with family

SMALL, but perfectly formed, this attractive bungalow at Brandon, Ballyphillip, Rathcooney comes with potential with a capital P.

On the market with Billy Casey of Casey Kingston, this three-bedroomed property comes with a beautifully landscaped, 2/3 of an acre site. Private and sheltered by tall trees and shrubs this is a property that could grow along with a family or could be just right for downsizers with a love of gardening.

There’s been considerable interest in the property so far, says Billy Casey, who is looking for offers in the region of €650,000 for Brandon. And, there is potential to expand into the attic, he says, while the house is laid out so that extending in any direction shouldn’t be a problem.

As it is, the house offers very roomy accommodation, with a split level drawing room of 22’ by 14’ and this includes French doors to a terrace overlooking the garden. In fact, the feature of this house is that is has lots of full length windows making the most of the verdant surroundings.

The kitchen/ dining room has a bank of built-ins and it also comes with a fireplace: again, it has patio doors outside and an attached utility. The master bedroom comes ensuite and is a very good size at 17’ by 14’, while the remaining bedrooms are served by a main bathroom. The layout of this house isn’t as predictable as most bungalows and it’s just off centre on it’s site, which would allow a number of options.

Entrance from the road is controlled by electronic gates and the house comes with a triple garage and service pit. The gardens, of course, are going to be the major selling point of this unusual sale and the house’s location in the eastern suburbs means it’s an easy commute to the city.
