Four on the market in Mount Merrion
A choice of four properties currently on the market in the much sought after Mount Merrion area of Dublin.
48 Foster's Avenue
€895k DNG Stillorgan, (01) 283 2700
Built in the 1930s, 48 Foster's Avenue now needs a little updating inside but it has some lovely period features including stained glass and beautiful bow windows. It's semi-detached and has four bedrooms on the first floor (one a single) as well as a bathroom with a claw-foot bath. The ground floor has two main reception rooms - one with French doors to the garden, and a breakfast room with a separate kitchen. It all amounts to a floor area of 1,238 sq ft and if you need more room there's an adjoining garage as well as a long, lawned back garden surrounded by mature trees that might be extended into.
23 Sycamore Road
€985k Lisney Leeson Street, (01) 662 4511
Sycamore Road is one of Mount Merrion's oldest neighbourhoods, having been constructed back in the 1930s by the renowned building team of John Kenny and John du Moulin. Number 23, which has been kept in good condition, has a floor area of 1,550 sq ft but there's a 108ft garden out the back if you feel the need to extend it. There's also an adjoining garage that hasn't been converted. Elsewhere, the ground floor has a dining room, a living room, and a sitting room as well as a sunroom off the eat-in kitchen. The four bedrooms are on the first floor along with a bathroom and separate toilet.
€995k Janet Carroll, (01) 288 2020
Many of the houses at Cherrygarth have swapped their adjoining single-storey garages for a two-storey extension. They gain more internal floor space, obviously, but they do lose a rather unusual roof terrace atop the garage. You reach the terrace from one of the four bedrooms on the first floor, so if you find you can manage without a front-facing roof terrace, you might gain an extra bedroom or an en-suite. Back on the ground floor there's dining room with a fireplace and serving hatch to the kitchen, as well as a living room and the garage. The internal floor area is 1,496 sq ft and there's a wide, lawned back garden with a utility shed.
12 Deerpark Road
€1.75m Lisney Leeson Street, (01) 662 4511
As the address suggests, 12 Deerpark Road is not much above 150 metres from the entrance to the 32-acre Deer Park, so you'll never be more than two minutes away from a good walk. Number 12 is a modern detached house with a floor area of 3,498 sq ft on three levels, and it has both a patio and a roof terrace overlooking the immaculate back garden. You reach the terrace from the interconnected dining room and drawing room and from the kitchen at entrance level. There's also a study on this floor, while the basement has a family room and a large storeroom. The first floor has four bedrooms (two en-suite).
