Trading up: Ballinakill, Waterford, €270,000

A good residential address near the Dunmore Road should garner interest for this detached bungalow, No 18 Woodbury, Ballinakill Court, in Waterford.

Located in a 25-year-old development, the four-bed, detached property has 1,950 sq ft of living space, plus a garage and a good-sized garden.

Selling agents, REA O’Shea O’Toole, say the house is well-maintained in an estate on which few houses are for sale. Auctioneer Des O’Shea says the trade-up market in Waterford City has picked up and there has been interest in this house.

“It has good space for a family and is located 4.5 km south east of the city centre and is close to Waterford regional hospital, Ardkeen shopping centre and the outer ring road.”

Accommodation includes a sitting room with a fireplace, a dining room, a kitchen with fitted units, as well as a utility room, a bathroom and four bedrooms with built-in wardrobes.

The main bedroom has an en-suite. Fitted with oil-fired central heating, the bungalow has a D2 energy rating.

The property has a detached garage, and lawned gardens with a patio, trees and shrubs.

On the market for €270,000, the house is in a mature estate of detached bungalows and two-storeyed homes.

VERDICT: Maturity, a good address and space, but would benefit from updating and a buyer is likely to want to improve on the D2 energy rating.
