Trading up: John’s Hill, Waterford, €415,000

Situated in a location that trade-up buyers want to live in, offering the space and gardens that trade-up buyers need, Ryecroft at John’s Hill in Waterford is, predictably, getting good interest.

Size: 160sq m (1,722sq ft)

Bathrooms: 2 

Bedrooms: 4 


Located amongst other mature detached properties, the ivy-covered house was built in the 1950s and has 1,722 sq ft of accommodation.

“Ryecroft is in one of the best residential areas in town, close to a good number of schools and within walking distance of the city centre. 

"Houses in this area don’t come on the market very often,” says Michael Coppinger of Sherry FitzGerald Rohan quoting a guide of €415,000.

Owned by one family for many years, it has been upgraded with double-glazed windows, gas heating, and has a conservatory at the rear. Other accommodation includes a lounge, a utility room, and a kitchen dining room.

Upstairs there’s a bathroom and four bedrooms. A very well maintained property, it probably requires updating and a new owner could up the insulation level to improve on the F energy rating.

Huge time and effort has been spent on the gardens, which are mature and private, enclosed by high hedges. 

Out front there’s an imprinted concrete driveway and to the rear there’s a decked patio and a sandstone patio, as well as lawns, gravelled areas, and shrubbery beds.
