Although the modern design is quite striking, it’s the location and price of 36 The Borough on Maryborough Hill that’s likely to attract the most attention.

Seeking offers of €225,000 for the three-bed end of terrace house, Michael Downey of ERA Downey McCarthy says it’s a type of property which is much in demand in Douglas for first-time buyers.

Situated at the top of Maryborough Hill, around three kilometres from Douglas village it’s part of a development built in 2008.

Describing it as an attractive contemporary property Mr Downey says it has been kept in very good decorative order.

Offering 926 sq ft of living space, the property has a timber- floored living room at the front with a fireplace as well as understairs guest WC.

To the rear, there’s an attractive modern kitchen with high gloss units and integrated appliances as well as a feature glazed section at the rear.

The first floor has three timber floored bedrooms, two doubles and a single, as well as a bathroom. The main bedroom has an en-suite and slide robes as well as a feature box window with views of the countryside.

To the front, there’s paved parking space and to the rear, a lawned garden which looks in need of a little TLC.

The Property Price Register records that the most recent sale in The Borough involved No 90 a three-bed mid terraced house which sold in August last year for its €227,000 asking price.

Verdict: Busy viewings are expected
