Four on the market: Bungalows in Foxrock
Published 21/10/2016 | 02:30
A choice of four bungalow properties currently available to buy in Foxrock.
Auburn Lodge, 3 Golf Lane, D18
€1.2m Lisney Leeson Street (01) 662 4511
As the name suggests, Golf Lane connects Torquay Road to Foxrock Golf Club. Auburn Lodge is right next to the club. You could spend as much time as you wanted in the 19th hole and never have to worry about driving home. The property is quite private too, as it's on 0.4 of an acre, at the end of a leafy driveway, and behind electric gates. It's an L-shaped bungalow of 2,562 sq ft with four bedrooms, all at the back end of the house. At the front there's a drawing room, a kitchen with doors to the garden, and a family room.
Silverstream, Plunkett Ave, D18
€1.495m Sherry FitzGerald Foxrock (01) 289 4386
Plunkett Avenue is a short and narrow cul-de-sac veering south off Westminster Road in Foxrock. It's thick with trees and there are only a handful of houses on it, so it could hardly be more select. Silverstream was built about 20 years ago on a half-acre site and has a 95 metre-long driveway, with a stream running through the grounds. The house is 2,878 sq ft in a sprawling single-storey layout. It has four bedrooms (all en-suite), two reception rooms, both with French doors to the garden, and a wood-and-granite kitchen.
2 Knocksinna Park, D18
€750k DNG Rock Road (01) 283 2900
There's a massive, 130ft garden out the back of 2 Knocksinna Park, near the N11 Stillorgan Road, so if you wanted to extend the house there's plenty of room to do it. At present it's 1,421 sq ft with four bedrooms and a large open-plan reception room, all on one floor. The bedrooms are all off an inner hall at the back of the house, along with the bathroom. At the front there's an L-shaped living and dining room with a fireplace, and the dining area leads into the kitchen, where there's a door to the side garden.
41 Hainault Road, D18
€1.15m Sherry FitzGerald Foxrock (01) 289 4386
You have two options with 41 Hainault Road. Either keep it as it is - a modest, detached dormer bungalow - or take advantage of the existing planning permission and replace it with two detached two-storey houses, as the site is a generous enough third of an acre. As it stands, it's 1,537 sq ft plus another 375 sq ft in the converted attic, where there are two rooms and a bathroom. Downstairs there are three bedrooms, a drawing room, a big kitchen with French doors out to that massive back garden, and an integrated garage.
