Four on the market... Bungalows in Blackrock
A selection of four bungalows currently on the market in the much-admired location near the sea.
117 Carysfort Park
€825k Savills South Dublin, (01) 288 5011
It has dainty proportions from the front, but this property is a surprisingly roomy dormer bungalow of 1,875 sq ft. A central hallway runs through the detached property, with a bedroom at the front on one side and a kitchen on the other. There's a living room and a dining room, linked by double doors, and both opening to the garden. There's a second en-suite bedroom at the rear, as well as a bathroom and store cupboard. Upstairs are two more bedrooms, including the en-suite master bedroom, a bathroom and a study.
10 Deans Court
€495k Sherry Fitzgerald Dun Laoghaire, (01) 2844422
Deans Court is a little enclave of neat bungalows in a cul-de-sac off Kill Lane. Number 10 is 883 sq ft in size, all on one floor, and with rather an intricate layout. At the front are the kitchen and a dual-aspect living room with a fireplace and a door to the garden. Behind the kitchen is a dining room with more garden doors, and there's a bathroom off the entrance hall. The three bedrooms, including the main with en-suite shower, are at the back of the property. There's off-street parking and a small but well-planted back garden.
1 Newtown Villas
€440k Downey Property, (01) 230 0023
Tramway Cottages, now known as Newtown Villas, were built to house tramway company staff. Number 1 became home to a tramway inspector, his wife and 10 children. It's been extended since then, although 10 children would still be a tight squeeze, as it's only 764 sq ft. This is enough to accommodate a lounge, kitchen, bathroom and three bedrooms. The back garden is fully decked, and you can reach it from the kitchen, as well as from a side entrance. It's about half a kilometre from Seapoint Dart station.
8 Ardagh Drive
€575k Beirne & Wise, (02) 288 0900
Number 8 Ardagh Drive, off Newtownpark Avenue, is a semi-detached bungalow of modest proportions, with 861 sq ft of floor space. However, it's on a corner site and has gardens to the front, side and back, so it may be possible to extend. At present, it consists of a living room at the front, a kitchen at the back, a shower room and three bedrooms.There's 85ft of road frontage with the side and front gardens, which are lawned and have hedging. The back garden measures 85ft and has two storage sheds.
