Each house is a three bedroom.
This three bedroom terrace property is in excellent condition throughout and boasts may quality extras that make it so much more than a ‘standard’ three bed. Rinuccini consistently commands the highest levels of rent in Portlaoise so this property will appeal to investors and owner occupiers alike.
