AS AN affordably priced, well located, well looked-after two-bed townhouse, No 74 Ard Keale at Mount Oval in Rochestown is certain to attract first-time buyer attention.

Guiding the 846 sq ft property at €235,000 auctioneer Jeremy Murphy says it’s decorated to a very high standard and is in show house condition.

“The location in Mount Oval is very popular. We are getting a lot of interest — mainly from first-time buyers but we are also getting calls a few calls about it from downsizing buyers and investors.’’

Built in 2005, the mid terraced property has gas heating and a C1 BER rating.

Accommodation includes a modern living room with walnut flooring and a mock fireplace with an electric fire effect insert.

There’s also an understairs WC, and, at the front of the house, a kitchen with modern units, fitted appliances and marble tiled flooring.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms with built in wardrobes and a walnut floored en suite bathroom.
