As it stands it’s in fine fettle, according to Michael O’Donovan of Sherry FitzGerald, and provides 1,100 square feet of space, with a big garden.
However, the sweetener in this sale is the existing planning permission for a two-storey extension at the side which would take the house up to the 2,000 mark in terms of square feet and create a whole new house, really. Across the road from Keating’s Furniture, (a landmark for the homes/ interiors anoraks) Rosara is on the Ballyhooley Road, a leafy, mature enclave of houses running towards the shopping centre in Ballyvolane.
The location couldn’t be better for townies, as the city is only a short spin away, while the country is another five minutes in the opposite direction. The North Link road is minutes away. With some lovely original features and a comfortable interior, Rosara’s other main attraction will be the large site and, in particular, the private, rear garden.
The layout is just that bit different too, with a living room dining room and kitchen fanning out from the side entrance and three bedrooms and a bathroom overhead.
The guide price is in the region of €395,000.
