Trading up: Boreenmanna Road €295,000

You’d be hard pushed to find a quieter, off-road setting and suntrap suburban back garden than Mindzenty, named after a persecuted Hungarian Cardinal.

Trading up: Boreenmanna Road €295,000

But, if you fall for the set-back setting, be aware you’ll have to do updating on this cute sized home.

Setting is in Beechwood Drive, off the city end of the Boreenmanna Road, just east of the Glenanaar bar and Wallace’s Avenue which leads on to the rest of well-serviced Ballinlough, and it’s in a cul de sac with two rows of about a dozen homes.

They are mostly detached bungalows, though a few have been made over to two storey homes, and Beechwood Drive also yields up some vital rear access and parking for terraced homes on Wallace’s Avenue itself, all within a walk of the city core.

Selling agent is Fiona Waldron of Jeremy Murphy Associates, who says the detached Mindzenty has been underpinned, has a new gas boiler and double glazing, and she guides at €295,000. It’s going to have a broad appeal, from traders down, DIYers, singles and couples.

It’s got three bedrooms, all compact, a bathroom and a large/deep living room and kitchen addition to the back, and apart from the quiet location its trump card is its lovely, tiered back garden with perfect southerly aspect, apple trees and old, block-built shed.

VERDICT: A sweet little gem, just add a bit of modern polish.
