Houses ring the outside of the cluster, and at its core are six pairs of semis around a central block, all with irregular, triangular rear gardens which give a great, dense mass of hedging and green views behind.
The slight downside is the overlooking of back gardens from neighbours’ upstairs windows - but, even on a cursory or initial visit, the upside of that is any new owners of No 9 Lima Lawn will get ideas of how they might well extend their possible purchase, simply by seeing what the block’s neighbours have done in their time.
No 9’s a lovely solid, honest and well-cared home that still is quite original, and carries a guide price of €295,000 with Hugh McPhillips of Marshs Auctioneers.
A key feature in this home’s case is the wide and wedge-shaped site it stands on, easily allowing lots of scope for a sizeable side extension, and garden left over.
Its upstairs bathroom has been modernised, and it has a guest WC under the stairs; its kitchen is compact and basic, but could at a minimum easily be extended back into the attached side garage.
: Near UCC, the Bon Secours, the Lough, schools etc and this particular section of Lima Lawn is very quiet.
