No 14 Beech Grove at Herons Wood in Carrigaline is making its second appearance on the market this year, coming back on with a guide price that’s €45,000 higher than what it made in the summer.

It’s on the Price Register for June at €175,000, but the buyers’ plans have changed and it now has an asking price of €220,000. Fiona Waldron of Jeremy Murphy auctioneers says the higher asking price is a sign of the increased level of demand. “ Other properties in this area are selling at this price. We sold a similar house around the corner for a similar price in recent months.’’

Located within a short walking distance of shops and schools in Carrigaline the three-bed semi has a little under 1,000 sq ft of living space . Ms Waldron says that Heron’s Wood is a sought after development and that the house is attracting attention from first-time buyers.

Accommodation includes a sitting room with semi-solid flooring and a kitchen dining room with maple units. The three bedrooms on the first floor have laminate flooring and one has an en suite. The house has a guest loo downstairs and a bathroom on the first floor. It’s been fitted with gas, double-glazed windows and gas heating.

Offering parking at the front, it has a stone patio and a lawned garden at the back.

Planning to upgrade to something larger, the owners are hoping that prices have risen back up to the 2010 level, which was when a house in this estate last sold for €220,000 .
