Extended upwards and outwards at 57 Killreendowney Avenue, Ballyphehane

THE owners of 57 Killreendowney Avenue in Ballyphehane have put in considerable amount of effort in the décor of their two bed terraced home.

The main effort has focused on putting on an extension to create an attractive kitchen dining space with fitted white units, integrated appliances, and a redbrick chimneybreast with a cast iron fireplace.

Remax auctioneers are seeking offer of €215,000, for the property which they say is very well cared for, and following an extension and an attic conversion, has approximately 1,000 sq ft of living space.

“The same family has owned it for 50 years and have renovated in the last five or six years,’’ says auctioneer Joe McCarthy.

The house also has a timber-floored living room with a bay window and a fireplace, a bathroom, and two bedrooms.

The owners have also converted the attic and put in a Velux window and laminate flooring to create a room which could be used as a study.

The house has PVC double glazed windows and gas central heating.

To the front there’s a parking area and to the rear, a slabbed patio garden with creeper covered walls, seating and a timber shed.

Along with the condition, the mature location within a 10-minute walk from Ballyphehane Church and the Lough, it is expected to attract good first-time buyer interest at the viewings.

“We had 14 calls about it the first day it went on the market which is a very good sign,’’ says Mr McCarthy.

VERDICT: First time buyers will find cheaper properties in the area but none that have been extended and renovated to this extent.
