DescriptionThe same family has lived in this home since 1968. Babies arrived wrapped in blankets and left, many years later, all dressed up in their wedding finery. This house has watched over piano lessons, missing hockey sticks, dirty football boots, teenage tantrums, quiet nights in, family dramas and so much more. And now this wonderful family home stands ready and waiting for its next family to arrive. It needs updating décor wise, for sure, but has stunning potential for an internal remodel or even an add-on extension. Imagination required, but we’ve all watched the home transformation programs on TV and it really isn’t that hard to see the possibilities.
The original two-bedroomed dormer bungalow was extended to the side to add an additional reception room and two more bedrooms. The hall leads to a kitchen, breakfast/dining room, spacious sitting room and an additional living room with garden views. There is also a guest wc downstairs and internal access to the garage.
In terms of the property itself – the extensive back garden faces the absolute best possible way to maximise summer sunshine. There are mature trees offering privacy and lots of space for trampolines, patios or putting greens. There is off street parking to the front, big enough for one car but there is space to expand if needed. The area is very settled and mature. There are lots of schools in walking distance, as well as a fantastic library, and shops including a well-stocked SuperValu, butcher, fishmonger and the very popular foodie destination ‘Get Fresh’ (people come miles to stock up there, seriously!). Rathfarnham Shopping Centre is a 15 minute walk (or 5 minute drive) away and the villages of Rathfarnham and Templeogue are both short drives. Sport has always been well catered for in the area – Ballyboden and Faughs GAA are both close, and two of Ireland’s top golfers grew up nearby and attended Colaiste Eanna boys secondary school.
THE BOTTOM LINE:
This is a solid, substantial family home in a great location. Could it be the house that will help you write the next chapter in your family history?
