It’s a four-bed semi-d, but the price of No 7, Shanakiel Park, puts it within reach of first-time buyers, as well as of traders-up.
A smart, 1,260 sq ft home, which has a private back garden and a clean interior, it’s on the market with Clare O’Sullivan, of Savills, who says the space, and the setting, near Sunday’s Well and the burgeoning Apple, make it a must-see — especially for a price of €198,000.
One of its four bedrooms is en-suite, (two of the four beds are doubles, two are singles), there’s a main family bathroom and two reception rooms, each of a good-enough size, one to the front, and one to the back.
There’s also a kitchen/dining room, with an adjoining utility, under-stairs storage, and an attached garage that could easily be integrated as extra living/storage space, or yield up a ground-floor WC and more.
There’s only 14 homes in Shanakiel Park, all mellow-looking with brick and dash pleasantly combined, and No 7 has nice landscaping and some extra planting bedding it down for keen gardeners.
To the back, there’s a wide, paved patio, and a raised lawn, not overlooked.
VERDICT: Apple Inc workers won’t have to fall far from the tree to find their way to this home, and UCC, the city and several hospitals are also with easy reach.
