Double up: two bungalows to go

PRETTY much a toss of the coin as to which to buy of these similar Waterford bungalows; both are done to an identical standard.

Each of their four bedrooms has a walk-in wardrobe, so they’re a shoe-in for time-strapped buyers.

Estate agents Sherry FitzGerald John Rohan describe the duo as “elite,” as much for their up-market location as for their upscale accommodation.

They are each 2,500 sq ft, on half-acre sites near the seaside at Tramore, at Ardan, Ballykinsella, and a short drive to Waterford city and close to the road web that is the outer ring road.

Prices are €750,000 each.

“These properties are amongst the most attractive prospects on the local market,” says John Rohan, of the prices. “They have one of the most exclusive addresses in Waterford, close to the historic 300-acre Ballinamona Estate and to the regional airport, and Dunmore East as well.”

Each house has a large, floored attic space accessed by Stira stairs, and, subject to planning, has conversion/extension scope. Gardens are landscaped, with sandstone patio paving off a sun room via French doors; there’s a high-ceiling kitchen/dining room with marble-tiled floor, integrated appliances and high-gloss built-ins; solid, American timber floors with ash internal doors, frames and architrave joinery.

There’s a big living room with open fireplace, sun room, utility, and main bathroom; two of the four bedrooms are en-suite and tiled, and each bedroom has walk-in robes. Concrete-built, the houses have PVC, woodgrain double glazing, oil heating, power showers and electronic gates.
