Auctioneer Tom Spillane is charged with the sale of the four semi-ds , in pairs side by side, ins convenient edge-of-Killarney setting near access points to the National Park and lakes, as well as being within a walk of the town centre.

And if you like what you see at the high-end showhouse, you can buy that as a package, as-is and fully furnished (items sourced by Hal-Lou Furnishings, Killarney), or any of the other three. He guides this one at €400,000 .

These three-storey homes are crisply finished with an exterior mix of white render and cut stone.

They have air-to water heat pumps, as well as inset, cassette-style wood-burning stoves in the main, front living rooms.

They are large for semis, and get some of their extra size thanks to attic-level bedrooms with en suite with shower/baths, and also thanks to a partial rear kitchen extension, a ground floor add-on side-by-side with that of the next door houses.

The spec includes fitted kitchens and utility rooms, with quartz worktops, Sliderobes in the master bedroom, gated and intercom access to the four homes.

VERDICT: roll on Thursday’s open viewings, 2-4pm.
