Size, condition and location make an impressive winner

THIS mature detached looking property at 4 St Nessans Park, Raheen in Limerick may surprise its viewers — firstly because it is attached to its neighbour at the rear and secondly because it’s thoroughly modern on the inside.

Built in the 1950s, the 1,350 sq ft house has just been remodelled and renovated. Selling agents Sherry FitzGerald O’Malley say it has several selling points, including its condition, size and location, and an attractive asking price of €237,500.

“Mature properties like this one don’t come on the market very often in this area, and if they do they usually need work, but this one has been renovated to a high standard,” says auctioneer Diarmuid Madigan, pointing out that’s its within 200 metres of the hospital and might suit as a premises for a surgery.

Although the property has maintained its original appearance on the outside it’s very contemporary inside. To the front there’s a large living room which has kept its original tiled fireplace but now has modern walnut flooring. The owners have opened up the ground floor to create a large kitchen/dining room which has porcelain-tiled flooring and stylish cream units with walnut countertops in the kitchen and a dining area with walnut flooring, recessed lighting, a modern fire and double doors.

Upstairs there’s a bathroom and three carpeted bedrooms. Originally the house had four bedrooms but the owners turned one of these into an en suite for the master bedroom which also has fitted wardrobes. The house has gas heating and original timber-framed windows. It has good sized mature private gardens with a detached garage and a large parking area at the front.
