DescriptionApartment building in the suburbs of Dublin in the 1950’s was a rare enough event, but numbers 228 and 230 Templeogue Road are just that and are currently offered individually or as a single lot. They are half of a bespoke apartment building, more than sixty years old, designed to appear at a passing glance like any other semi-detached home in the area. This is an investment opportunity with the apartments requiring extensive upgrading and remodelling to reach their potential. The layout, currently 2x56sqm apartments, could be retained or the property could be remodelled as a single-family home by combining both apartments into one; a change of use planning permission would be required to make that possible.
The door to the ground floor apartment leads to a small lobby and then directly into the living room. The larger bedroom is located directly off the living room, with the other bedroom reached through a small alcove. The kitchen and bathroom are both to the rear of the property. A third room, suitable as a study, could alternatively form part of a remodelled floorplan. The staircase to the upstairs apartment leads to a more conventional landing with the rooms laid out around it. Again, there are two reasonable bedrooms and a third room that would make a good study.
Each apartment has access to its own private enclosed yard, with a door from the lower apartment and a staircase from the upper property. These properties are situated within a few hundred yards of Templeogue village and nearby Bushy Park. They are close to good transport links, with a major section of the Bus Connects ‘A’ spine running past the door.
