Trish Dromey looks at an affordable three-bed in Alden Grove in Douglas that is sure to be snapped up quickly.
Sq m: 93 (1,000 sq ft)
As a detached house in Douglas with a guide of €230,000, No 42 Alden Grove can be expected to spark strong first-time buyer interest.
Glen O’Connor of DNG Creedon says that within an hour or two of advertising it on the internet this week, it had already attracted 14 calls.
Offering 1,000 sq ft of living space, the three-bed is part of a development of detached properties built in the 1990s and is located approximately one mile from Douglas village.
Accommodation includes two living rooms, a large laminate floored one at the front and a 10ft sq carpet floored one at the rear.
There’s also an under stairs guest WC as well as a long narrow kitchen with white fitted units and lino flooring.
The upstairs has a bathroom and three carpeted bedrooms, two doubles and one single, including one with an en suite shower room.
Fitted with gas central heating and double glazed windows the house has an E1 BER rating.
Located in a cul de sac at the back of the Alden estate, it has a driveway at the front and an enclosed garden at the rear.
The property is said to be in good condition but has been rented and it’s likely that a new owner may want to give it a decorative upgrade and improve the energy rating.
The last property to sell in the estate was No 26 which went on the market in July with a guide of €235,000 and shows up on the Property Price Register as having sold in September for €277,000.
VERDICT: As an affordable detached house in Douglas, it is expected to sell quickly.
