TRADING UP: Richmond, Glanmire - €575,000

You won’t be caught for space at 38 Richmond Wood. But you might be caught for time, if viewing at today’s 4-4.30 open viewing slot, via agents Sherry FitzGerald. 

Richmond, Glanmire - €575,000

Size: 233 sq m (2,500 sq ft)

Bathrooms: 3

Bedrooms: 4

BER Rating: D1

The detached four-five-bed family home is large; with over 2,500 sq ft, and is on a gently sloping, tiered site of a third of an acre, which has been extremely well kept, with sunny paved patios.

No 38 is towards the far end of cul-de sac Richmond Wood, off Spring Hill just above St Joseph’s Church and the row is typified by large detacheds, many brick-faced, on big sites the like of which are rarely given out anymore.

Estate agent Gillian McDonnell of Sherry FitzGerald says it’s one of Glanmire’s more sought-after trading up locations, guides at €575,000 and says that No 38 is in immaculate order, and anticipates strong interest.

It has a wide entry hall with internal arch, three reception rooms, one with stove, another with gas fire, plus a kitchen/diner with granite tops.

There’s a utility and guest WC, plus a playroom, which leads to a gym, and there’s an optional study/bed five also, all thanks to a very wide floor plan, effectively with single storey wings on either side of the central, two-storey section.

(The gym previously was a home office and has independent access.)

Overhead, meanwhile, are four double bedrooms, all with built-ins, one of which is en-suite, plus there’s a main family bathroom with jetted bath.

VERDICT: No 38 will grow on you
