Four on the market: city homes with workshops
A choice of four city properties which come with their own workshops.
Leaca Bán, Tooman, Lusk
€595k Quillsen Glasnevin (01) 850 0900
Though it's only about five minutes' drive from the M1 - and hence half an hour from Dublin - Leaca Bán is in a countryside setting, and has three-and-a-half acres of grounds with sea views. Built in 1980, it's 3,229 sq ft with six bedrooms. The ground floor has two reception rooms - a lounge and a dining room. Also on this level is an office, a kitchen, a utility room, bathroom and one bedroom. The other five bedrooms are upstairs. There are landscaped gardens and a separate 2,153 sq ft powered workshop.
17 Mount Albion, Churchtown
€465k Sherry FitzGerald Dundrum (01) 296 1822
Number 17 Mount Albion is a smallish semi-detached bungalow, but the selling agents point out it could be easily extended, planning permitting. As it's configured now, the site includes a workshop out the back, while the house itself has three bedrooms, a living room with a solid-fuel stove, and a newly-fitted black kitchen. It's 764 sq ft in size and in good condition throughout. Mount Albion is a cul de sac off Beaumont Avenue in Churchtown, and the house is about a 15minute walk from the Luas stop in Dundrum.
Bayview House, Kilternan, D18
€925k Vincent Finnegan (01) 298 4695
As well as a workshop, Bayview House has a gym and sauna, so you might never need to leave home again. And you might not want to either, as Bayview, on the Ballyedmonduff Rd, is a 3,552 sq ft split-level house with a wraparound balcony enjoying views of Dublin city and the bay. There are five bedrooms, one has a walk-in wardrobe and en-suite. There's a living room and a family room, both giving onto the balcony, as well as a dining room, conservatory, and kitchen with separate breakfast area.
Dubber House, Finglas, D11
€695k Colliers International (01) 633 3700
Dubber House is on 11 acres - zoned Rural - at the very end of the cul de sac that is Dubber Lane. It's a protected structure, as it's on an archaeological site. A detached period house measuring 2,045 sq ft, it has five bedrooms, all on the first floor along with a bathroom. Downstairs there are three reception rooms - a sitting room, dining room and drawing room - as well as a breakfast room, kitchen, and another bathroom. The outbuildings - workshop, car port, stores etc - are in a quaint courtyard out the back.
