In hindsight, he’d guided the detached 1,700 sq ft quality decorated four-bed with feature ‘man shed’ in the garden a bit low at the start, at €395,0000, but it flew and quickly gained traction.

Now , for underbidders and late arrivals, here’s a consolation prize, another four-bed, in smart order, weighing in at a smaller 1,370 sq ft inside but with much large gardens.

A new arrival in the past week or two, No 28 Bridgewater is launched at €445,000 by its selling agent Brendan Bowe, he’s started viewings and he says it’s gorgeous, with very private and sunny back garden, with a split level in the landscaping and lawns.

No 28’s in walk-in condition, with two interlinked ground floor reception rooms via solid double doors, and there’s access from the back room to a deep, sandstone patio, home to a storage shed, and with a few stone steps down to a lawn, all fringed by block walls and book-ended by a green hedge for privacy and security.

In front, there’s a walled garden, and a printed concrete drive for parking.

There’s also a kitchen with oak units next to a dining area, a utility, guest WC and overhead one of the four bedrooms is carpeted, and has an en suite, while the main family bathroom’s recently been upgraded, with curved shower/bath enclosure.

Agent Brendan Bowe says the popular, O’Flynn Construction Bridgewater is “a lifetime location2 for family buyers.

VERDICT: Keen proven demand should mean a swift sale.
