The own­ers of 20 The Lawn, Green­val­ley in Don­ny­brook have spent time and money up­grad­ing their property from the stan­dard three-bed semi they pur­chased four years ago. Dur­ing ren­o­va­tion, they put in a new high-gloss kitchen, fit­ted wal­nut floor­ing in the hall and liv­ing room , turned the box bed­room into a bath­room and also con­verted the attic.

New on the market with a guide of €240,000, the 1,420 sq ft house is being sold by Shane Finn of DNG Cree­don who says it’s been fin­ished to a high stan­dard and is at­tract­ing strong first time buyer interest.

To the front there’s a sit­ting room with a gas fire and to the rear a com­pletely re­vamped kitchen with high-gloss black units, a long break­fast bar and tiled floor­ing . The own­ers knocked a wall be­tween this and the liv­ing room next to it to make it open plan and put down wal­nut floor­ing Up­stairs there are three car­peted bed­rooms in­clud­ing one with an en suite. Dur­ing ren­o­va­tions the own­ers made the smallest bed­room into a shower room and turned the orig­i­nal bath­room into a bed­room. Up in the attic they put in a 12 ft long car­peted room which can be used for stor­age or as a play area or study.

The property has a drive­way at the front with space for two cars and a lawned gar­den with a shed at the rear. Over­look­ing a green area at the front, it’s ap­prox­i­mately two kilo­me­tres from Dou­glas Vil­lage.

The Property Price Reg­is­ter shows this house sell­ing for €162,500 in June 2013. More re­cently it records No 17 sell­ing for €240,000 in March this year.
