Trading up: Maryborough Woods, Douglas €375,000

A very early bid of the full asking price of €375,000 gives a strong indication of the salability of this four-bed semi at 30 Wheatridge, Maryborough Woods in Douglas.

Size: 122sq m (1,321sq ft) 

Bathrooms: 3 

Bedrooms: 4 


Selling agent Jeremy Murphy says the location is hugely popular with trading up families because of its proximity to Douglas. 

He believes the situation of this property in a cul de sac over looking a green area will have strong appeal for this type of buyer.

Built in 2000, it has 1,321 sq ft of living space and is said to be well finished and in excellent condition.

Accommodation includes a carpeted front living room with double doors connecting it to a second living room at the back.

There’s also a long, tiled kitchen dining room with fitted units and appliances as well as a guest WC and a small utility room.

On the upper level, there’s a bathroom and four carpeted bedrooms — two at the front — two at the back — including one with an en suite and fitted wardrobes.

A cobble lock drive at the front, redbrick to match the facade, has space for two cars while the garden at the rear has a lawn and an Indian sandstone patio.

Verdict: Expected to sell very well. Nearby No 22 went on the market with a guide of €375,000 earlier this year and sold for €410,000.
