Perfect trade up home in Maryborough estate

THIS is a fine, four-bed house in one of the quieter areas of the Maryborough Estate, off Cork’s Rochestown Road.

A mature, leafy and very settled area, it has a fairly secluded location, but has great accessibility.

There is a turning age-wise in the estate as older families downsize and younger families move in — and no 63 Limetrees Road is a perfect trade-up move.

Not only does it come with spacious living accommodation, but it also includes two offices to the side of the house which could suit as a surgery or therapy room.

A Coveney-built house, it dates from the early seventies and is a fine, solid structure, says auctioneer Billy Casey of Casey and Kingston, who has give it a guide of €650,000 plus.

One of the few detached house in the estate, he says, it faces over a lovely green area and has generous gardens to the front and rear. The rear is well-bounded with a wall and tree combination, and is very private: it also faces west.

Inside, there’s the formal sitting/dining room to the right of the entrance hallway which stretches the full length of the house: big picture windows make the rooms very bright.

Next door is the family room of 19’ by 14’ with a window overlooking the back garden, and it leads through to a fine sized kitchen.

This L-shaped room is big enough for a family table at the centre. It also has a door leading directly to the back garden.

Fittings here include a perspex covering over the shed and yard area and then a big lawn.

The two offices are fully compliant, planning wise and interconnect with a small storage room plumbed for bathroom use.

Upstairs, there are four bedrooms, two of which are doubles and two singles, all with built-in units and all very bright.

This is a smashing house for a family looking for a larger property in Douglas.
