Small but stylish and modern city pad is expected to sell fast.
Size: 47 sq m (511 sq ft)
Best Feature: Slick rebuild
When 2 Upper Glasheen Road last featured in this paper, the suggestion was that it was more in need of knocking down than doing up.
But done up it has been, to quite extraordinary lengths.
The sad and neglected single-storey one-bed cottage has now become a very stylish and modern property which according to Behan Irwin & Gosling auctioneers is getting interest from first-time buyers , investors and commuters looking for a city pad as a second home.
It looks like a newly-built house and given that it’s been reroofed, rewired, replumbed and almost everything, bar the walls, is new — it almost is.
Every square inch of this 511 sq ft property has been revamped.
Inside the front door is an open plan modern kitchen-living room with white high gloss units and solid oak flooring.
This level also has a small utility room and modern bathroom with black tiles.
The central feature in the property is a modern open tread timber staircase with a glass balustrade.
At the top of it there’s a landing area which can be used as a study as well as carpeted bedroom with a sloping ceiling and two Velux windows.
Fitted with gas heating and double glazed windows, the property has a C1 energy rating.
It doesn’t have space at the back or parking but does have a graveled area at the front with a tree.
Auctioneer Mark Gosling says that the location within a ten minute walk of UCC is a major attraction “After one open viewing we got an offer close to the guide price of €150,000.”
The Property Price Register records this property as having sold for €25,000 in January 2015
VERDICT: Not expected to be long on the market
