Family home fits a wide range

Changes made in the past number of years make the family home at 106 Palmbury Orchard, fit for a wide range of uses — it’s been extended, and now has a ground-floor en suite bedroom, which is wheelchair-accessible.

Thus a four-bed semi-d, No 106 is on the market with Anthony O’Regan of Keane Mahony Smith auctioneers, who says it has 1,250 sq ft now, and he adds it’s in immaculate — “show-house” — order throughout. He seeks offers around €145,000, and has early viewings with an offer in already at €130,000.

The upstairs is quite typical of the semi format, with two double bedroom, a single and a main family bathroom, so it’s at ground level that most of the changes have taken place.

The single-storey extension now provides a bedroom with shower room en suite, there’s a front 15’ by 10’ sitting room with fireplace, a kitchen/dining/family room also with fireplace and a wood-panelled ceiling in the family area.

VERDICT: In a quiet setting off Togher Road.
