Mostly likely, the buyers for this bungalow at 3 Arderrig Park will be traders-down, reckons estate agent Glenn O’Connor of DNG Creedon’s offices in Douglas.
He has just listed the mid-1900s three-bed bungalow, with a new kitchen extension plus garage, at this cul de sac park off Carrrs Hill, effectively off the old Carrigaline Road.
It’s under a kilometre walk to Douglas village along the road, he reckons, and there’s also a woodland and streamside walk option for pedestians, which goes down through a glen to Douglas Community Park, Douglas Lions, and Daily’s shop.
Apart from its recently fitted 20’ by 12’ kitchen in a rear extension, bringing floor area to a decent 1,400 sq ft, the rest of No 3 is a bit dated, so new owners will want to make their own decorativ mark, but already there’s a nice cast iron fireplace in one of the two reception rooms.
In addition, there are three bedrooms, main family bathroom and a separate guest WC.
The site’s a useful 0.15 of an acre, and there’s parking for several cars, and the garage holds another two cars, bikes of sports gear.
VERDICT: It’s guided at €325,000, and should fly out the door for DNG Creedon.
