DescriptionThis three-bedroomed family home is in need of a bit of TLC. The essentials are good – it’s really just in need of a cosmetic makeover (the interiors equivalent of a good haircut and some time with a personal shopper). Although, if you’re interested in a more Operation Transformation approach, it would probably be fairly easy to open up the ground floor space at the back – the wall between the kitchen and dining room is a stud partition so should be relatively easy to open out (get proper advice though before wielding the sledge hammer!). If this is your new home you’ll be decorating anyway so the additional disruption might be worth putting up with at the same time.
The hall leads to a good size sitting room with a real fireplace (gas fire inset) and double doors through to the dining room. The tiled kitchen is large enough to house a full range of appliances without compromising on available cupboard space. Upstairs are three bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes and the master ensuite.
There is off-street parking to the front in this quiet cul-de-sac. The south facing back garden has been reimagined as a large patio area and there is a substantial outbuilding across the rear that could have workshop or home office potential. Balrothery is about half-way between Templeogue and Tallaght villages, with a good selection of shops, restaurants, schools and various entertainments available in either direction. The entrance to the National Basketball Arena is nearby, as is the Spawell driving range and pitch and putt. St. Enda’s GAA club and the Dodder Linear Park are within easy reach. The M50 is close enough to make trips further afield very straightforward – 20 minutes South or North will take you as far as Bray or Dublin Airport outside rush-hour.
THE BOTTOM LINE
A great house in a great location
