Dating most likely to the 1920s (the post office four doors way by High Street has ’1926’ on its facade), this 925 sq ft three-bed semi was priced at €195,000 on launch by Stephen Clarke of REA O’Donoghue Clarke but has gone to €230,000 in recent days in bidding.

Extended to the back, it has two reception rooms, kitchen and ground floor bathroom, with three overhead bedrooms. It’s west facing in front, has off-street parking and a garage, and is in good order, but needs some updating.
