ERA Downey McCarthy are very pleased to present this super detached bungalow, in good decorative order, and set on a fine elevated site overlooking the River Lee and the Lee Valley. This property comes with tonnes of potential with ample space and scope to extend and remodel the existing dwelling. The site extends to an acre in total with about half of that in good usable level ground at the base of a craggy cliff face. Steps lead up through the tall trees and rock to an oasis of land at the rear of the site.

The accommodation at present includes a hallway, Living room, Kitchen/ dining room, 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. The property is neat and cosy with high ceilings and some original features. It was modernised about 10- 15 years ago and and is well presented throughout.
