If you like 1970s décor - and who doesn't these days - you'll feel right at home at 2 Knocknacree Grove in Dalkey, Co Dublin. And even if the view within the house doesn't appeal, there's plenty to distract you without.

Knocknacree Grove is a tiny, 100-metre cul-de-sac off Knocknacree Road, consisting of just six detached houses.

Number 2 is right at the end of the cul-de-sac and has a site of a quarter of an acre with lovely views of Dublin Bay from the house and garden.

The main reception room has floor-to-ceiling windows to make the most of these views. It's an open-plan living and dining room and it's on the first floor, along with the rest of the living rooms.

It has a high ceiling with wood panelling, and there's a fireplace fitted with a gas fire. The vast windows face out over the garden and the sea across to Dalkey Island.

Also on this upper floor there's a lounge and kitchen - again open-plan and with two archways in an exposed brick wall linking the two areas.

Both rooms have wood-panelled ceilings, and the lounge has a wood-panelled wall as well.

Three of the four bedrooms are also upstairs, and one has an en-suite shower.

The fourth bedroom is on the ground floor, where there's also a utility room and an integral garage measuring just under 13ft by 10ft.

The total floor area is 2,024 sq ft.

The house is less than a kilometre from Dalkey DART station and the village. You can be can supping pints in Finnegan's of Dalkey after little more than a 10 minutes' walk. For more wholesome recreation, Dalkey Hill is about the same distance in the other direction.

The agent is Sherry FitzGerald Dalkey (01) 275 1000 and the asking price is €1.25m.
