That’s according to James Colbert of Colbert & Co who says the three-bed mid-terraced property has been refurbished and redecorated to a high standard by its current owners who have lived there for around ten years. 

Guiding at €265,000, it offers 1,000 sq ft of living space and, according to Mr Colbert, is attracting good viewings from first-time buyers.

The upgraded home has a front lounge with solid oak flooring and a modern inset electric fire with a neutral colour scheme enlivened by orange cushions and some colourful wall prints. 

An archway opens on to an oak-floored dining room at the rear with more wall art and there’s also a long, narrow, tiled kitchen fitted with modern cream units and a breakfast counter.

Also on the ground floor there’s a guest WC while upstairs there’s a bathroom and three bedrooms — including a box room, all with painted floorboards. Fitted with gas heating and double-glazing, the house has a C2 BER rating. 

The driveway at the front as well as the back garden have been cobblelocked. 

Enclosed between an ivy-covered wall on one side and a blue fence on the other, it has a blue timber shed, some potted plants, and bistro-style seating.

Situated close to schools and shops, the property is within a 15-20 minute from the city centre.
