No 49's neighbourly relations in Blackrock

Will No 49 sell as well as recent deal at No 50, asks Trish Dromey.

Will No 49 sell as well as recent deal at No 50.

Selling agents Timothy Sullivan & Associates will no doubt be hoping to do for No 49 Marian Park in Blackrock what they did for the house next door — sell it quickly, and for above its guide price.

No 50, a mid-terrace, two-bed property which had just been given a high-spec renovation, went ‘sale agreed’ in November for €265,000 shortly after going on the market for €249,500. Prior to its renovation, the Price Property Register shows it selling for €161,000 in October 2016.

Mr Sullivan has just now one to market with No 49, a two-bed end-of-terrace house with gardens at the front, side, and rear, and for which offers of €275,000 are being sought.

The current owner has decorated and upgraded the property, which is said to be tasteful and well maintained. As a two-bed house with just 764 sq ft of living space, it’s small but the side garden offers space for expansion. It doesn’t have car access/off-street parking, but has planning for a driveway.

Accommodation includes a timber-floored sitting room which has a fireplace with a stove, as well as a kitchen/ dining room with solid oak units The upstairs has a bathroom and two bedrooms.

Built in the 1950s, most likely 1954, which was a Marian Year, the property has been fitted with double-glazing and gas heating. It has an E1 BER rating.

Mr Sullivan says the Blackrock location will ensure the house gets very good attention. “We had over 30 viewings for the house next door — mostly first time buyers as well as trading down buyers.” No 49 is listed on the Property Price Register as having sold for €110,000 in 2013.
