Three-bed detached, Wicklow town – €425,000

13 Glendasan Drive in Wicklow town has been upgraded by the current owners to create more of a flow to the ground floor, namely with an open plan layout that’s well zoned and modern. The ground floor comprises a bedroom to the left of the hall and a large living area that leads to the kitchen and dining area on the right. A large bathroom and a utility room complete the space. Upstairs sit two large bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom. The overall floor area of this bright home is 98 m².

From the kitchen are doors to the back garden which is low maintenance and has a roomy garden room and decking to make a nice outdoor area for entertaining during the summer. A walk away from the town, schools, shops and the seafront are all close by, making this a nice base for a family who doesn’t want to hop in the car too often.
