There are few people who ever feel their houses are sufficiently large, particularly in those vital years when the home is the resting place and nest for young people.

That’s unlikely to be an issue for the next owners of this hidden gem a Marlinstown, for not alone is it spacious, but it has the luxury of coming with five bedrooms – and it stands on a very generous site that measures up to 0.87 acres, with beautifully manicured lawns both to the front and rear, and also, plenty of on-site car parking.

The house is in an in-demand location, close to the town, but also to the new Holy Family school, and within close reach of the Canal greenway.

At ground floor level, the house has an entrance hall, living/dining room, kitchen with living area, a utility room, an office, three bedrooms and the main family bathroom.

Upstairs are located the two remaining bedrooms and a second bathroom.

The kitchen is impressive, with lots of built in units and with a solid fuel stove that has a back boiler. There is also a cast iron fireplace in the house, located in the living room. The living room is actually open plan with the dining area – a lovely space that, via the patio doors enjoys beautiful views across the garden.

Included in the sale are the carpets, curtains, blinds, light fittings, oven, hob, fridge and dishwasher.
