WITH a guide of €270,000, no 15 Manor Road in Lenehaghmore may be a little more pricey than the average starter home, but selling agents DNG Creedon say it’s worth it.

“It’s a four year old house with 1, 350 sq ft of living space which has been kept in showhouse condition — we are expecting interest from both first-time buyers as well as people looking to trade up,’’ says auctioneer Glen O’Connor.

He says the location in the Ruden Homes-built, Manor Farm development less than 4km from Wilton shopping centre is likely to be a strong selling point.

A three bed semi detached home, it has accommodation on three floors. 

At ground level there’s a timber floored living room with a bay window and a fireplace with a stove, a guest WC, and a kitchen-dining room with tiled flooring and modern gloss units.

On the first floor there’s a main bathroom and two laminate-floored double bedrooms including one with an en suite. 

On the second floor there’s an extra large (20’by 13”) with laminate flooring with built in wardrobes and an en suite.

Fitted with PVC double glazed windows and zoned gas heating, the house has a B1 energy rating.

Out front there is a driveway with paved off street parking and to the rear, a lawned garden with a shed and a small patio area.

Mr O’Connor says the owner occupiers who have had this for the last four years have kept it in immaculate condition. 

Because of its location, within a five minute drive from Wilton, and its condition, he expects good interest.

Verdict: Modern and very well kept.
