DescriptionEnjoying a convenient location in a mature residential neighbourhood close to Dundrum Town Centre, this semi-detached 1970s era property has benefited from a variety of recent improvements. With further work there is excellent potential to create a spacious, contemporary family home in one of south Dublin’s most sought-after suburbs.
Refurbishments carried out over the past two years include new double-glazed windows, redecoration and insulation in two bedrooms, new double-glazed window in the bathroom, and carpets on the stairs and landing. Both other bedrooms, the lounge and living room were redecorated and recarpeted within the past two years, while most recently, new vinyl-lino flooring was laid in the kitchen.
There are three receptions on the ground floor, comprising a lounge to the front of the house, a sitting room to the back and – a key consideration in these work-from-home times – a study overlooking the front driveway.
To the rear, there’s obvious potential to modernise and extend by knocking the wall separating the kitchen from the adjoining sitting room and/or (subject to planning), build on at the back to create a spacious, open-plan kitchen-diner at the heart of the home.
Downstairs accommodation is completed by a hall accessed via a separate entrance lobby.
Upstairs are four bedrooms, including the two refurbished within the past six months, and a family bathroom. Thanks to a fully converted attic, there are almost 15 square metres (not included in the property’s overall floor area) of additional versatile living space on the top floor.
Outside, there’s a good-sized garden at the front and an even bigger one (circa 130 sq m) at the back, with mature trees and shrubs along the rear boundary that screen the property from being overlooked. The back garden also features three plumbed and wired block-built units, comprising a boiler room, laundry/storage room and an outside wc.
