Finding a small house on a big plot on the Model Farm Road will be manna from heaven for some — this is prime hunting ground and it should draw in the doer-upper-do-it-bigger brigade and even the smash-and-developers.
Size: 129sq m (1,395sq ft)
BER Rating: G
The rather modest Maretimo is in a prime position a couple of doors down from Rendezvous Bar in one of the western suburbs more chi-chi neighbourhoods, so the liklihood is, it will be snapped up fairly smartly.
And the family home stands behind a private hedgerow in a line of detached homes with a lot of larger, leafier properties to its side and rear.
This is a house that has probably done steadfast work raising families in the past, but with higher expectations for higher achievers, it’s likely to become a much more impressive and bigger property once sold.
Fresh to the market with Denis Guerin of Frank V Murphy and Co, (who sold to the last owner back in 1982), it has that perfect conjunction of good schools, CUH and fast access to the city.
The three-bed detached bungalow stands on a private site of a quarter of an acre and comes with a lovely, south-facing garden to the front, with a westerly aspect to the side and rear.
Right now, it offers very good quality accommodation with a range of living space and a good, rear extension and it’s very close to town and the Wilton Shopping Centre.
Verdict: Perfectly place for a summer blizzard of bids.
