A five bed brick-faced property with 2,500 sq of living space, it comes with half an acre of gardens and is located within three kms of Blackpool Shopping Centre.

Seeking offers in excess of €495,000, Kate Kearney of DNG Murphy Condon says the 15-year-old architecturally designed property, is the first property in this small development to come up for resale.

Describing it as an impressive, well-designed home, she notes that it offers easy access to the North Ring Road, the Dublin Road and the N20.

Rooms at the front include an oak floored living room with a marble fireplace as well as a timber floored sitting with a fireplace.

To the rear there’s an oak floored dining room, which has French doors leading out to a conservatory as well as an archway leading to a spacious kitchen which has fitted units and integrated appliances.

At ground floor level there’s also a utility room, a guest WC and an L-shaped oak floored room, which is listed as the fifth bedroom but could be a playroom or study.

Upstairs there’s a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath and four bedrooms.

The master bedroom at the front has a bay window, a walk in wardrobe and an en suite.

In the gardens there’s a detached garage, lawns, a patio and hedging.

Verdict: Has much more garden that most trade ups near the city
