Huge first-time buyer interest in stylish, modern harbour home in Monkstown

Monkstown three-bed house that has been extended and thoroughly modernised comes with a high B2 energy rating, writes Trish Dromey.

Originally a run of the mill end of terrace property, No 7 Glen Road in Monkstown is now smart, stylishly cedar clad and much in demand.

“We are getting a high level of interest from both first time buyers and downsizers and have already booked a dozen viewings,” says auctioneer Michael Pigott who has just listed the three bed house with a guide of €270,000.

The property was previously owned by an architectural technician who seems to have practically rebuilt in.

Extended and thoroughly upgraded and modernised with grey windows, oak flooring and a contemporary kitchen, it now has 1,044 sq ft of living space and a high B2 energy rating. French doors at the front open into a smart modern kitchen with a breakfast counter and a large glass block wall at the rear. Alongside it is a small utility room and an oak floored living room, which has a fireplace with a solid fuel stove. The first floor has a bathroom as well as three bedrooms including an oak floored one at the front with modern units and a shower room with contemporary fittings

On street at the front, the property has a patio garden at the rear. Located within a five minute walk from the waterfront at Monkstown and a 10 minute one from The Bosun and Ensign bars, it’s around 8km from Douglas.

The Property Price Register shows 7 Glen Road selling for €245,000 in January 2015.
