he type of property that first time buyers frequently look for, No 55 Belmont Avenue in Rochestown is a well looked after three bed with a guide of €275,000.

Selling agents Savills say the key selling points are the condition and the location.

“It’s a very well maintained family home in a popular suburb around a five minute drive from Douglas village,” says auctioneer Lawrence Sweeney noting that the end of terrace property has 1,210 sq ft of living space.

Accommodation includes a front living room with cherrywood flooring and a timber fireplace as well as a tiled kitchen dining room with modern fitted units and sliding patio doors.

The first floor has a bathroom and three timber floored bedrooms — two doubles and a single. Built in the early 2000s, the property has gas heating and a C2 BER.

There’s a parking area in front of the house and at the rear, an enclosed garden with a patio and a lawn.

The last house in a row of four, No 55 is in a cul de sac at the end of Belmont Avenue.

“It is quite private and has views of trees and countryside,” said Mr Sweeney adding that it’s within a short walk from Garryduff Sports Centre and around 10km from the city centre.

He says those who came along to the open viewing included many first time buyers as well as quite a few downsizers.
