GETTING TO GRIPS with a fast-changing property market is tricky, but we’re here to make things simpler.
Each week, we’ll handpick a number of homes within a similar budget, to give you a snapshot of the property landscape at a particular price point.
This week, we’re looking at properties around Limerick with an asking price of exactly €225,000 – from a family home in Dooradoyle to a property on an elevated site in Doon.
Just a 10-minute drive from the heart of Limerick city, 112 Kilteragh is ideally located for families. There are several schools and sports clubs within walking distance, as well as the Crescent Shopping Centre and University Hospital Limerick.
There’s a lawn and driveway with parking for two cars to the front of the property, and a lawn and patio to the rear. Inside, the three-bed house is finished with modern decor and includes an open-plan kitchen and diner, as well as a large living room. There are two double bedrooms and one single bedroom on the first floor.
Situated on an elevated site of 0.66 acres, Glen View is a detached property of 1,689 sq ft. For further space, there’s a detached garage of 545 sq ft to one side. The ground floor accommodation comprises a living room with a solid fuel stove, an open-plan kitchen and diner, a bathroom and a utility room.
On the first floor, there are three double bedrooms and an en-suite bathroom. The grounds are mainly made up of lawn, with mature trees and hedges surrounding. Doon village is a five-minute drive away.
Located a 30-minute walk (or a 10-minute drive) from the heart of Limerick city, 151 Mayorstone Upper is set and ready for moving day. The semi-detached bungalow has undergone a complete renovation, with new radiators, a new boiler, new double glazed windows, a new front door and a new back door. The entire house has also been re-wired and re-plumbed.
As part of the renovation, the attic was converted and a stairs was installed. This space would make for an ideal fourth bedroom, den or home office. There are lawn areas to the front, rear and side of the property, as well as a driveway with parking for two cars.
A three-bed house with a stone facade, The Grotto is a detached property with plenty of potential.
