Prime po­si­tion in Pas­sage West

Tr­ish Dromey says strong in­ter­est is ex­pected in this three-bed semi

Irish Examiner - Property & Interiors - - Starter Homes -

IN THE two years since they bought it, the own­ers of 15 Maple Woods, Pem­broke Woods in Pas­sage West have made this three-bed semi their own. Chang­ing the in­te­rior dé­cor quite sub­stan­tially they put in a new kitchen, new floor­ing and re­placed the orig­i­nal fire­place with a red­brick one and fit­ted it with a stove. “They also im­proved the in­su­la­tion and re­con­fig­ured the up­stairs lay­out a lit­tle. The house is now in ex­cel­lent con­di­tion,” says TJ Cronn of Ir­ish & Euro­pean auc­tion­eer, quot­ing a guide of €230,000.

Built in 2000 in an es­tate with a cen­tral green area, the prop­erty is a lit­tle over 1km from the vil­lage. To the front there’s a car­peted sit­ting room with a red­brick chim­ney­breast and to the rear a kitchen din­ing room which has mod­ern cream units and chrome ap­pli­ances and some tim­ber pan­elling in the din­ing area. There’s a down­stairs guest WC, and up­stairs there’s a bath­room and three bed­rooms in­clud­ing one with an en suite. When they moved in the own­ers made some ad­just­ment to at­tach the en suite to the largest bed­room. The house has 926sq ft of ac­com­mo­da­tion and a C1 en­ergy rat­ing.

The own­ers have used a lit­tle imag­i­na­tion as well as some low tim­ber fenc­ing and play equip­ment to turn the back gar­den into Fun Land, ad­ver­tis­ing this fact with a sign.

Mr Cronin says he is an­tic­i­pat­ing strong first-time buyer in this house — be­cause of its con­di­tion, price and lo­ca­tion.

The Prop­erty Price Reg­is­ter records that 15 Maple Woods sold for €167,000 in De­cem­ber 2015.

VER­DICT: Per­fect for a buyer who wants some­thing that’s al­ready ren­o­vated
