There’s a lot more to an exceptional mid-terraced three-bed in Douglas than meets the eye, says Trish Dromey.
Size: 111sqm (1,200 sqft)
The owners of 55 Hollyville Mews in Grange are leaving their mid-terraced three bed home larger than they found it, with a converted attic and a sunroom at the rear.
Now offering 1,200 sq ft of living space, the property is on the market with DNG Creedon who are guiding it at €215,000.
“It’s been owned by one family for 20 years and has been very well maintained. Located in a quiet cul de sac, it’s within a short drive from Douglas village and six kilometres from the city centre,” says auctioneer Glenn O’Connor.
Accommodation include a living room with a fireplace and double doors opening into a timber-floored kitchen dining room which has cream fitted units and a fireplace with a stove and a back boiler.
An archway from the kitchen leads to a sunroom with has solid timber flooring and a timber panelled ceiling.
The first floor has a bathroom and three carpeted bedrooms – two doubles and a single. In the converted attic there’s a spacious carpeted room (16 ‘by 14’), which has a Velux window.
The house has gas heating with a back boiler, double glazed windows and a D2 energy rating.
When the sunroom was being added the owners also did some work on the back garden which is enclosed by timber fencing.
It’s fully paved and has a shed. To the front there’s a small graveled area, fronted by on street parking
VERDICT: More space than you would expect
