O’Donnellan & Joyce will commence its 2011 auction campaign with four properties at enormous discount prices. Last year the company recorded the highest level of sales by public auction of any auctioneering company in Ireland, and the highest rate of success with 80 per cent of properties sold either during the auction or immediately afterwards. With sellers anxious to turn their properties into cash, buyers are heading to the auction room to get value for money.
Tomorrow (Friday ) O’Donnellan & Joyce will bring a range of properties into the auction room, each priced to sell. For auction on the day will be four wonderful properties from various locations in the city; two are executor sales (owners deceased ) and must be sold, and the remaining two are being offered at very attractive reserve prices.
No 19 Sycamore Court
No 19 Sycamore Court, Renmore, is an excellent three bed semidetached home in good condition located at the end of a quiet cul de sac and facing on to an open space. The property has been very well looked after over the years and although it will benefit from some modernisation it has the potential to be transformed into a wonderful family home.
There are amazing sea and mountain views from the first floor and it has the added attraction of having a one-bed self-contained apartment at the side. This would yield a very good rental income, or alternatively could be incorporated back into the main house as the connecting door is still in the kitchen. This in turn would add to an already spacious house and afford a growing family space in abundance. To the rear there is a good size garden plus a well maintained garden to the front with off street parking. Because this is a cul de sac there is also ample parking outside the house. Sycamore Court is within walking distance of GMIT and Bon Secours Hospital. Renmore has matured beautifully and has recently won a Tidy Towns award for its open green spaces and garden areas.
Accommodation includes entrance hall, living room, kitchen/dining, family room, three bedrooms, and bathroom. The apartment comprises living room/kitchen, bedroom, and shower room. The property enjoys double glazing and oil fired central heating, and has recently been fitted with new carpets.
The solicitor with carriage of sale is Bernadette Burke & Co solicitors, 2 St George’s Quay, Headford, phone (093 ) 35369. The last open viewing takes place today (Thursday ) and Saturday from 11am to 12 noon.
No 19 Sycamore Court is priced to sell at €170,000.

Acting on the instructions of the executors of No 1 Blake’s Lane, Bohermore, O’Donnellan & Joyce is offering for sale this compact single storey city centre cottage, located in the beautifully presented and award winning cul de sac, which comes with an AMV of just €60,000.
The property is within 400 yards of Eyre Square and is convenient to all amenities and services. The house is in need of total refurbishment and comprises approximately 363sq ft of living accommodation plus a rear yard. Total site coverage is 583sq ft.
This property is an ideal acquisition for a DIY enthusiast or small builder and would provide an opportunity to develop a city centre townhouse in an excellent location. It would be an ideal permanent residence or an excellent investment property.
