A setting mid-way along Rosebank, between the two Douglas Roads, and within a walk of the city centre, and Douglas village, should draw keen family trading interest to Redthorn.
Size: 121 sq m (1,300 sq ft)
This well-kept three-bed semi-detached home has several additions on the side and back already, and has just been underpinned with drains checked, so for any new buyers, there’s a deal of certainty about any future spending they might wish to do.
Dating to the mid-1900s, it has a lean-to sun room to the back, of the rear reception room, and a side wing now houses a good-sized, modern ground floor guest WC/wet room, fully tiled.
Also slightly added to the otherwise square floor plan is a kitchen section with sloping roof.
Alongside meanwhile in the garden, and detached, is a garage/workspace study, used by the family during the school and college-going years.
And, there’s still plenty of private back garden left over, running to the green strip alongside Ballincurrig estate.
Now, Rosebanks Redthorn is an executor sale, and agent Sam Kingston of Casey and Kingston says it’s in good overall condition, in a very popular location just off the Douglas Road, near national schools such as St Anthony’s and Eglantine, as well as secondary schools, sports amenities, and on two bus routes.
VERDICT: Rosebank’s a banker of a location.
