Part of a development of just 12 houses built close to the village in 2003, it’s a four-bed detached house with over half an acre of gardens and 2,400 sq ft of living space.

Guiding at €425,000, it’s on the market with Property Partners Gallivan who say this is an impressive property and a very attractive option to a trade-up buyer in Killarney.

“It’s across the road from the Golf Club and is within a mile of Beaufort village which has pubs, a shop, a post office and a restaurant and it is just a 15 minute drive from Killarney town centre,” says Tadgh Gallivan.

Its well-maintained and modern accommodation includes a large carpeted front lounge, which has a stone fireplace fitted with a stove, in addition to a slate-floored modern kitchen with painted cream units with cherrywood counter-tops and a breakfast bar.

Off the kitchen is a sunroom which serves as a dining area and has a stone fireplace with a stove and French doors leading out to a patio. 

To the rear, there is a utility room, a guest WC and there’s also a carpeted room which is fitted out as a study but could also be used as a playroom.

On the upper level, the house has a bathroom and four carpeted double bedrooms.

Three of the bedrooms have en suites, and the large master bedroom at the front also has a walk-in wardrobe and a door opening out on to the front facing balcony with mountain views.

Fitted with oil-fired central heating, underfloor at ground level, the property has a C2 energy rating.

At one side of the house there’s an attached double garage which has been partitioned, so one half of it can be used as a gym.

Set on a site of 0.66 of an acre, the house has extensive gardens, with a front patio, some paved pathways and planted beds and a stone boundary wall at the rear.

The Property Price Register only records two sales in Churchtown Park. 

The last one was in 2015 when No 8 sold for €385,300.

VERDICT: not expected to linger long on the market
