The owners have put chandelier-style light fittings in most of the rooms and have painted the kitchen/dining room to create a Georgian-style striped wallpaper effect. Selling agents, Keane Mahony Smith, say it’s in showhouse condition and is attracting appreciative attention.

Priced at €220,000, the 1,300 sq ft house is part of a small development built by Colemans builders, in the centre of Grenagh, 12 years ago.

Accommodation includes a 22’ long kitchen/dining room with cream units, fitted appliances and porcelain-tiled flooring. Off the kitchen is a utility room and, to the front, there’s a carpeted lounge, which has a fireplace with a stove. To the side, there’s a single-storey section that has a walnut-floored room. This is listed as a bedroom, but is currently in use as a playroom.

On the upper level, there is a bathroom, plus three bedrooms, including one en-suite. Two of the bedrooms have been decorated in the same style as the ground floor, with elaborate light fittings and period-style furniture and wallpaper.

The elaborate light fittings are not included in the sale price, but they can be bought separately. Fitted with oil-fired central heating, the house has a C2 energy rating.

“It’s an exceptionally well-finished property — we’ve had close to 20 viewings in the first week,’’ says KMS auctioneer, Darragh Taaffe, adding that there is planning permission for a two-storey extension at the rear
