Trish Dromey reports on a three-bed townhouse located just 10 minutes from Douglas which will be an attractive option for first-time buyers.
Size: 86 sq m (995 sq ft)
WITH one huge double window at the front and a square glass box window at the rear, 90 The Borough in Moneygourney is much more striking than the average three-bed townhouse.
Part of an-architect designed development built in 2008, it’s a stylish 935 sq ft property which has been owner-occupied since day one, and is said to be in fantastic condition.
Behind the almost full length ground floor window is a long, timber floored dining room with a fireplace which stretches the full length of the house and has patio doors at the rear.
There’s also a ground floor WC and a modern kitchen with shaker style units, integrated appliances and a large feature window.
Upstairs there is a bathroom and three bedrooms, two doubles and a single.
The bedroom at the back has an en suite, built-in wardrobes, and a modern variation on a bay window — more of a box window. The second, double bedroom at the front has a long almost full-length window.
Fitted with gas heating, the house has grey double-glazed windows and a B3 energy rating.
The cobblelock driveway has space for two cars at the front while the garden at the rear is lawned and has a shed and a paved patio area.
Located at the top of Maryborough Hill, the property is within a 10-minute drive from Douglas. On the market with Sherry FitzGerald auctioneers, the property is guiding at €227,000.
A good attendance is expected at an open viewing which has been scheduled for this morning.
Auctioneer Ann O’Mahony predicts that the majority of the viewers will be first-time buyers.
VERDICT: More stylish than the average townhouse.
