First time buyers, investors and downsizers should be interested in this well maintained Lovers Walk apartment, says Trish Dromey. 

Apartments at Woodhill in Lovers Walk don’t often come on the market but when they do they are almost guaranteed to attract good interest.

“Woodhill, is a gated development of just 12 properties which has landscaped gardens and is within walking distance of the city centre; it’s main attraction is its exclusive location’’ says Sherry FitzGerald’s Gillian McDonnell who is seeking offers of €220,000 for no 10.

A two-bed ground floor apartment with 825 sq ft of living space, the property is said to be well maintained.

Accommodation includes a kitchen with timber units and double doors leading into a 23 ft long living dining room with timber flooring, ceiling coving, an electric fire and a door leading out on to a patio at the rear.

Built in 1996 the development has communal parking as well as communal gardens planted with mature trees and shrubs. Situated on a height above the city in Montenotte, it has views to the south over the River Lee.

First time buyers, investors and downsizers were expected to turn up for open viewings being held this week.
