VERY much a blank canvas for renewal, and in a great inner-suburban location, is the three semi-detached residence, 7 Rosebank.
Rosebank’s one of those mid-1900s estates linking the main and south Douglas roads, and has a dog-leg and cul de sac section at the Douglas Road end connecting with, for pedestrians’ ease, adjoining Ballincurrig: this is where No 7 Rosebank’s set, just nicely back from passing car traffic.
At a shade under 1,100 sq ft, it’s new to market with Suzanne Tyrrell of Cohalan Downing who guides at €295,000.
It’s cleaned out, basic, has two reception rooms with wood floors and fireplaces — even the kitchen has a fireplace.
There’s electric storage heating, an attached garage and a 60’ back garden, bounded at the rear by mature trees screening it from the Orchard Close townhouses in Ballincurrig.
Ms Tyrrell says south-facing No 7 all needs modernising, but has been underpinned and the location is excellent, near a range of schools and sports amenities, within a walk of the city centre, and of Douglas village too.
No 7 comes for sale just weeks after another Rosebank semi, Redthorn, which has been part extended with a sunroom and garage conversion to study use, guided at €335,000 by agents Casey and Kingston.
VERDICT: All ready for a make-over
