Property Details

Full Details

Situated on a good-sized plot at the end of a residential cul-de-sac on the western slopes of the town approximately half a mile to the west of the main amenities and beach. Access to open country walks can be accessed nearby.

A detached chalet bungalow constructed we understand, in the 1950’s of rendered and brick elevations with stone quoins under a tiled roof. The property is in need of refurbishment throughout and has potential for extension to either the front or the rear with good sized gardens situated to both the west and east of the house itself.
Planning permission was granted on 3rd October 2017 to erect a detached three-bedroom property in the garden to the east of the property. That approval has subsequently lapsed but the original plans can still be viewed online. The property has a garage and parking area with access from Priests Road, and some hill and sea views.
