Secluded city home with lots of potential to rear
Where: Rhorkee, North Circular Road, Limerick
Details: Detached five-bedroom house on half acre
Located in Limerick's most sought-after area, this detached house is situated on 0.5 acres and extends to almost 279sqm.
Originally built in the 1920s, it retains its original architectural features, though it does need some renovation. Such upgrading would also benefit from the planning permission to add a further 93sqm to its accommodation.
Furthermore, it has the advantage of access to the front from the North Circular Road and to the rear from the Ennis Road, while being sheltered from both by its private, landscaped lawns to the front and rear.
Both the drawing and sitting rooms have large picture windows overlooking the front of the garden as well as ornate plaster coving and period fireplaces.
A living room with doors connecting to a conservatory add to the space for entertaining or family relaxation. The kitchen is equipped with a number of Shaker-style units and a oven with hob. Its workspace is supplemented by a utility room while a den and guest WC complete the downstairs rooms.
Upstairs, the master bedroom is en suite and has access to a balcony. One of the other four bedrooms is also en suite, and a family bathroom is also located at this level.
The asking price is pitched just below the €1m threshold for the higher rates of stamp duty and property tax.
