First time lucky for affordable home in sought-after estate

Three-bed semi has huge appeal, writes Trish Dromey.

ERA Downey McCarthy expect first-time buyers to jump at the chance to buy this three-bed semi at 64 Crawford Woods in Glanmire.

Guiding at €265,000, the property is one of the more affordable properties in the Murnane O’Shea built developmen’t which includes both detached houses as well as four bed semis.

“This is an elegantly presented property which has been decorated to a high standard for the current owners,’’ says auctioneer Garry O’Donnell adding that Crawford woods is a sought after estate where resales are relatively rare.

Built in the mid-2000s the house has 990 sq ft of living space and a low maintenance garden.

Accommodation includes a laminate floored living room at the front with a cream fireplace, a chandelier style light fitting and ceiling cornicing. There’s also a guest WC and an L shaped kitchen dining room at the rear with fitted units and a patio door. Upstairs has a bathroom and three bedrooms, a single and two doubles, including one with an en suite and Sliderobes. Overlooking a green area at the front, the property doesn’t have any grass for its owners to cut as the front is paved and the rear is graveled and has a large decked area and a large shed. Located one kilometre from Glanmire and around 3.5 from the Lee Tunnel , the property is within a 15-minute drive from the city centre.

VERDICT: Affordable for Crawford Woods where the most recent sale involved a detached house at No 6 selling for €350,000 in March
