No short back-and-sides for this spacious suburban property

Room to expand and room for imagination, reports Tommy Barker.

There’s room to extend to the back, and side, of 36, Delfern Grove, a three-bed semi-d above Cork’s Douglas at Maryborough Hill. There’s an extra-sized site here, with a slope or fall away to the back, where there’s currently a tiered garden and patio space.

Auctioneer Jeremy Murphy guides it at €187,500 and with just under 1,200 sq ft here, there’s already a reasonable amount of space.

It’s configured as two linked reception rooms, with kitchen/dining room too, there’s a ground floor guest loo, and one of the bedrooms is en suite, so the plumbing/bathrooms tally is bang up to spec, plus there’s gas central heating and double glazing, and patio access via a utility.

No 36 is in good overall condition, and the site’s generous, with lots of scope to the side, plus there’s off-street parking in front for one car.

Delfern Grove is reached within the Lissadell estate, and there’s access close-by to the N28/south ring road/Sli Carrig Donn, as well as back into Douglas village.

VERDICT: Good mix of rooms, in a cul de sac estate off Maryborough Hill.
