Size:137 sq m (1,475 sq ft) `

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 

BER Rating: B3

Built in 2007, the 1,475 sq ft property has just come on the market with Sherry FitzGerald auctioneers who are guiding it at €370,000.

They say this is a well-designed, well-finished house overlooking a green area, which, at open viewings, is attracting good family interest.

“It’s close to all local amenities including schools — both primary and secondary — a crèche, sports clubs, shops, pubs, and restaurants,” says auctioneer Gillian McDonnell.

To the front of the partially stone clad property is a timber floored living room with a black marble fireplace. 

For the kitchen, the owners opted for yellow paint in this bright, modern room, which has white fitted units, granite worktops and a centre island.

In a single-storey section at the rear, there’s a tiled dining room with patio doors and a Velux window. 

The ground floor also has a small utility room and a guest WC. Upstairs there’s a bathroom and four bedrooms including one with an en-suite shower room. 

Fitted with gas heating, the house has a good B3 energy rating. 

Verdict: Rare to the market – the Property Price Register doesn’t record any sales there since 2013.
