Smaller houses, and apartments have been selling in the €200-300k range, while a three-bed home No 17 went to market in Autumn guiding €350,000, and is ‘sale agreed’ at €410,000.
Now, Sherry FitzGerald also bring the privately-owned detached three-bed, all en suite No 13 to market, guiding at €435,000.
That’s for a house with about 300 sq ft more accommodation than No 17, as this has 1,550 sq ft, of well-kept and bright acommodation.
Interest is likely to come in the main from traders down, but the last sale saw some better-heeled first-time buyers in the hunt also, says Sherry Fitz director Ann O’Mahony.
The contemporary-styled 74 unit scheme was done eight years ago, on the five-plus acres of wooded grounds of a private home called Elden on Maryborough Hill just above the Maryborough House Hotel above Douglas, by the golf club.
Design of two-storey/split level homes is by Hogan Architecture, matching the crisp finish features of the crescent-shaped apartment blocks lower down the site and No 13 has a front reception room, rear family room/dining room 18’ by 12’ off the kitchen’, plus utility.
: Well done at Elden
