A good attendance is expected for the second open viewing of 2 Model Villas, Gardiners Hill in St Luke’s, which is taking place at lunchtime today.

Selling agents Sherry FitzGerald say that as a three-bed terraced property in a mature residential area, within walking distance of town, it’s certain to get attention.

Auctioneer Gilliam McDonnell says the 805 sq ft property has been owned by the same family for many years and has been well taken care of.

Upgraded over time with double glazing and gas heating, it has some original features but will require updating and modernisation. The E1 energy rating is also likely to require attention.

At the front of the house is a carpeted living room with a fireplace and electric fire and to the rear a dining room which has a fireplace with a gas fire.

Also at the rear in single storey section which looks as it was added on at a later stage, is a small kitchen with white fitted units. To the side of this, possibly added at the same time, is a small sunroom.

On the first floor the property has three bedrooms including a small box room at the front. 

There’s also a bathroom, which also looks like a later addition to the property at the rear.

The house doesn’t have off street parking but does have a paved garden at the front which has been planted with some rose bushes. 

To the rear there’s the type of long garden typically found in Victorian houses in the city. This has a patio and a lawned area with hedging on either side.
