Richmond, Glanmire €575,000
233 sq m (2,500 sq ft)
You won’t be caught for space at 38 Richmond Wood. But you might be caught for time, if viewing at today’s 4-4.30 open viewing slot, via agents Sherry Fitzgerald. The detached four-five-bed family home is large; with over 2,500 sq ft, and is on a gently sloping, tiered site of a third of an acre, which has been extremely well kept, with sunny paved patios.
No 38 is towards the far end of cul-de sac Richmond Wood, off Spring Hill just above St Joseph’s Church and the row is typified by large detacheds, many brick-faced, on big sites the like of which are rarely given out anymore. Estate agent Gillian Mcdonnell of Sherry Fitzgerald says it’s one of Glanmire’s more sought-after trading up locations, guides at €575,000 and says that No 38 is in immaculate order, and anticipates strong interest.
It has a wide entry hall with internal arch, three reception rooms, one with stove, another with gas fire, plus a kitchen/diner with granite tops. There’s a utility and guest WC, plus a playroom, which leads to a gym, and there’s an optional study/bed five also, all thanks to a very wide floor plan, effectively with single storey wings on either side of the central, twostorey section. (The gym previously was a home office and has independent access.)
Overhead, meanwhile, are four double bedrooms, all with built-ins, one of which is ensuite, plus there’s a main family bathroom with jetted bath.
VERDICT: No 38 will grow on you
