Trading up: Castle keep, Dungarvan - €550,000

AN asking price of €550,000 might seem very high for an end-of-terrace house in Dungarvan, if the property wasn’t a spacious, contemporary showhouse with views of the harbour.

No 1 Castle Keep at Abbeyside in Dungarvan, is one of a terrace of four houses built three years ago in the first phase of an 18 house development. “The developer has now decided to sell this showhouse and to build a new detached one for the second phase,’’ says David Reynolds of Sherry FitzGerald Reynolds, joint selling agent with Flanagan auctioneers.

The four bed house has close to 2,000 sq ft of living space as well as a 600 sq ft floored attic. Finished to a very high standard it has oak flooring, wool carpets, a Portland stone fireplace, marble floor tiles and a stylish modern kitchen with high gloss units, timber worktops and quality appliances.

Accommodation includes a sitting room, a dining room, a study, a utility room, as well as a kitchen/dining room at the rear. It also has a bathroom and four bedrooms, including an en suite.

Mr Reynolds says the key selling point is the location. “It’s close to everything and it has a great view of the harbour,’’

VERDICT: A trade-up buyer could buy a four bed house in Dungarvan for less, but without the style, space and harbour views.
