WITH three bedrooms and close to 1,400 sq ft of living space, No 52 The Avenue Garrane Darra in Wilton is quite a bit more substantial than most duplex apartments around the city.

Guiding at €230,000, it is being sold fully furnished by Sherry FitzGerald who describe it as being well maintained and in ‘turnkey condition’.

“Situated at the foot of Eagle Valley, it’s in a modern development which is popular both with owner-occupiers and investors,” says auctioneer Johnny O’Flynn, pointing out that the duplex is within walking distance of both Wilton Shopping Centre and CUH.

On the first-floor level the property has a tiled kitchen with cherry wood units and an archway leading through to a timber floored dining room.

At this level, there’s also a timber floored living room with an electric fire as well as an understairs WC.

Up on the next level there is a bathroom and three bedrooms with built in wardrobes, including one with an en suite. Fitted with double-glazed windows and gas heating, the duplex has a B2 energy rating.

Double doors from the dining room lead on to a balcony which overlooks communal gardens in the centre of the development. The property comes with one designated space and parking for guests.

Mr O’Flynn says there has been a high level of interest, which he attributes to its spaciousness: “There are just six properties of this size in the development – it has more space than many four-bed houses.’’

VERDICT: extra spacious and modern
