Trish Dromey says there is an option of almost three acres of land with this superb, modern detached Co Waterford home.
Castletown, Tramore €430,000
204 sq m (2,200 sq ft)
DETACHED, spacious and well kept, this property at Castletown near Tramore, Co Waterford, is on a three acre site, which is a bit more than you might expect for a property of its type.
Selling agents Lawrence & McDonald are seeking offers of €430,000 for the 2,200 sq ft house and the 3.3 acres of land. They say purchasers could use the land for a variety of purposes, including horses, but for buyers who don’t want a large site, they are willing to discuss selling the house on the half-acre which surrounds it.
The property was built in the late 1990s by the owners, one of whom is a stonemason and who carried out the stone facing on the exterior and the detached garage and some interior brickwork.
A good-sized family home, the house has a carpeted living room with a large fireplace alcove fitted with a solid fuel stove. Unusually for a modern house, the owners have put in picture rails — and have used them to good effect.
To the rear there’s a second sitting room with maple flooring and a glazed area resembling a mini conservatory
Also at this level is a utility room as well as kitchen with pine units, granite worktops, an island unit and ceiling beams. At the back there is a large sunroom with a timber ceiling and redbrick walls.
The first floor has four bedrooms with built-in wardrobes. The main bedroom has an en suite shower and the bathroom has a Jacuzzi bath,
Fitted with a stove and oil fired heating with a combi -boiler, the house has a C1 energy rating.
Time and effort has been spent on the gardens which have a large brick edged patio, mature trees and shrubs, colourful flowers and well-tended lawns. At the side is a 550 sq ft detached garage and to the rear there is a large block built outhouse.
The location, three miles from both Tramore and Waterford city is expected to be a strong selling point. The selling agents say it’s close to the outer ring road and to the sought-after Castletown development at Ballinamona and is already getting good interest from trade up buyers.
VERDICT: An attractive house with beautiful gardens and lots of land
