Madonna House Lower Road Shankill
|Area: 1,900sq ft||Bedrooms: 3||Price: €700,000|
|Type: Bungalow||Location: Mature development 400m from village centre|
Few properties offer as much potential to develop and extend as this spacious bungalow located just a few minutes walk from Shankill’s regenerated village centre. That’s thanks to its winning combination of easily altered rooms, a conversion-friendly attic, a double garage and circa 7,500 sq ft (0.172 acre) of surrounding grounds.
At approximately 1,900 sq ft, it’s already exceptionally large, comprising a succession of sizeable, well-proportioned rooms in good, ready-to-move-in condition. In brief, these comprise an entrance hall, three good-sized bedrooms, a family bathroom, two reception rooms (currently in use as a lounge and formal dining room) in open plan configuration with each other, and an open plan kitchen/diner leading to a conservatory at the rear of the house.
Outside, the property’s extensive grounds are laid out as lawned gardens to the front and rear, set off by mature cherry trees, shrubs, flower beds and planting schemes. There’s also a large double garage and a long drive running all the way from the front to the rear, with additional access on the other side the house.
While the property would benefit from modernisation and improvement, any such investment will pay rich lifestyle dividends.
