For this reason viewings have been brisk at 2 Cleve Hill which is new on the market with an ask of €380,000.

Selling agent Timothy Sullivan says interest levels have been good despite the fact that it’s August, which is usually quiet.

Located on the city end of the Blackrock Road within a ten minute walk from Ballintemple ,this is a spacious 1,850 sq ft property which has character and colorful gardens, but is in need of some updating and modernisation.

Accommodation includes a sitting room, a dining room, a small study and a kitchen.

An extension added on over the years provides space for a sunroom, a shower room and a bedroom or playroom.

On the first floor there are four bedroom as well as a bathroom with a separate WC.

The property has mature gardens, enclosed by hedging.

To the front there’s a gravelled area for parking and some plants including rose bushes and hydrangeas and there’s also a lawn at the rear.

While most of the houses on Cleve Hill are located on a side road, this one is located at the start of the estate on the main Blackrock Road. It’s around two kilometres from the city centre.

Verdict: very well located with space and character.
