A walk in the park in Clontarf
19 Baymount Park, Clontarf €1.25m
If you have dogs, be warned that if you intend to buy Number 19 Baymount Park in Clontarf, Dublin 3, you will have no excuse for failing to exercise them.
It's around the corner from the promenade at Clontarf Road, and a few minutes' walk from St Anne's Park, with its dedicated Dog Park. In fact, a dog would make your life a misery, begging to be walked; better get a cat instead.
Baymount Park is a tree-lined cul-de-sac in a pastoral enough location, with St Anne's Park to the north of it, the grounds of the Manresa Jesuit retreat house to the south, and the sea to the east.
Number 19 is semi-detached and on a corner site, and it was extended by its current owners, almost doubling its size to 2,382 sq ft.
The reception rooms on the ground floor include a sitting room with a stone fireplace, a games room with a bay window, and a study. The main living area, though, is an open-plan kitchen, living room and dining room that spans the whole back of the house, in the extension, and has doors to the garden.
You reach this via yet another reception room, this time a wood-floored family room with a fireplace.
Separate from the kitchen is a laundry room, and there's also a guest toilet off the entrance hall.
The first floor has the extended master bedroom with en-suite shower, as well as three other bedrooms and a bathroom.
Above that, at attic level, is a fifth bedroom with an en-suite shower room.
There's parking on the front gravelled driveway, where a side entrance leads to the back garden. It has a lawn and flower beds, and there's a raised deck.
