FERRYBANK, WATERFORD € 335,000
Sq m: 158 (1,700 sq ft) BER rating: C2 Bedrooms: 4 Bathrooms: 3
Built around the year 2000, and in a development where re-sales are in the ‘hen’s teeth’ rarity category, is the fine 1,700 sq ft family home Woodview in Waterford’s Mullinabro Woods’ The Haven section.
The development, with five open green areas for children to play in and around, is in a safe rural setting, but with mains services and easy access to the Redbridge roundabout, for links to the M9 (for Dublin/Carlow), the N25 (Cork to Wexford) and N24 to Limerick, notes selling agent David Ennis of Ennis Gough.
It’s two-storey, with side wing and rear sun-room, and is in smart order inside and out, with three reception rooms as well as a large open plan kitchen/dining space with fiery-red range cooker. The main living room has a Stanley wood burning stove set into a quite formal white marble chimneypiece, with oil central heating in the background. Agents Ennis Gough seek € 335,000 and say its owners have lavished care on it, as the development is predominantly owner-occupied, with a vigorous residents’ association. VERDICT: A good mix of quality home, on a decent site with good screening and privacy, close to Waterford city, yet with a sense of rural remove to it.
