This mid 1900s home is just shy of 1,300 sq ft, set near the Cross Douglas Road, and comes to market with agent Jeremy Murphy, who guides at €330,000.

Within a walk of the city centre, and of Douglas village, it’s south-facing, with off-street parking for several cars, has an attached garage and a good, decent-sized back garden.

Soubirous has had modernising touches, walls have been dry-lined, and the BER’s a respectable D2.

Internally, it has lot of older house features, with an attractive retained tiled hall, doors are old pine, stripped and waxed, there are two reception rooms, each with fireplaces, and a kitchen with cherrywood units.

Overhead are four bedrooms, and a main family bathroom with jetted corner bath.

VERDICT: The attached garage, with rear section and garden access, has scope for greater integration and day-to-day use with the main house section
