Bedrooms: 5

With a sought-after residential address, five bedrooms, and a tastefully-decorated modern interior, No 33, Bloomfield at Annacotty in Limerick is expected to sell well.

“The address is very, very good, and the location is excellent — it’s within minutes’ walk from Castletroy Park, from Newtown and Castletroy shopping centres, is close to schools and colleges, and also offers immediate access to all major road networks and the University of Limerick,” says Brenda Mulcahy of Sherry FitzGerald.

Guiding at €449,000, the 1,916 sq ft property is situated in a row of red and grey brick faced detached houses at the front of the 2005 McInerney-built development.

Situated on a corner site, it overlooks a green area at the rear and, according to Ms Mulcahy, is in show house condition. It has stylish, high-quality fittings, bright, well-proportioned rooms and a superb modern layout which is perfect for family living.”

On one side there’s a 20’ long living room with a red and white colour scheme, a limestone fireplace, cornicing, and a chandelier-style light fitting. Double doors at the rear open into a modern kitchen dining room with cream units granite countertops, porcelain floor tiles and one wall painted in tarragon green. To the rear, there’s a tiled sunroom overlooking the garden and at the other side of the house a timber-floored playroom. Off the kitchen is a small utility room and off the hallway, a guest WC.

The upper floor has a bathroom and five bedrooms including two with en suites. Three of these are doubles and two are singles, including one which is now used as a study. The master bedroom is 18’ long and has black glass sliderobes as well as an en suite. The remaining three bedrooms have been attractively decorated to suit the tastes of their occupants — one is stylish and grey with splashes of red, another is mauve and purple with a few Harry Potter touches while the last one is blue and red with lots of bunnies.

At the front, the property has a driveway and small green area and, at the rear, a private garden enclosed by a high block wall. Outside the sunroom there’s a section of decking enclosed by railing and beyond this a lawned garden for playing.

Located around seven and a half kilometres from the city centre it’s one and a half kilometres or a five minute drive from Castletroy Shopping Centre and just a five minute walk from Castletroy College.

VERDICT: an upmarket trade up.
