Desirable Uam Var home ticks all the right boxes

PRETTY as a picture — with lovely grounds and plenty of privacy — this house at 55 Uam Var Drive in Bishopstown is a good buy.

Not only does it tick a number of boxes in terms of its location, there is also a lot of development potential, even though the property is in great nick already.

The rear has been extended to provide a large kitchen dining room and there are two living rooms as well as three bedrooms. However, there is the opportunity to add to the existing footprint by including the attached and very large garage at the side, which would allow a fourth, ensuite bedroom or extra living space.

The property is on the market with Terence O’Leary who has recently joined Murray Browne Auctioneers as negotiator.

The bungalow has a wide site with a south-facing back garden and a location second to none in the western suburbs. It’s close to good local schools and on the doorstep of CIT: UCC and CUH are within a five minute drive.

Fully modernised, the house has PVC windows, has been fully rewired and comes with gas heating. A new oak kitchen is installed and the kitchen/diner has direct access to the garden, as does the living room, which has French doors to a patio area.

The sitting room has a bay window to the front and is a spacious, bright room, while the living room comes with an ornate, cast iron fireplace.

There is scope to extend into the attic and home.

It’s under offer at €420,000.
