Four on the market: near Portmarnock strand
A choice of four properties available to buy in the much-sought-after seaside location of Portmarnock.
17 Burrow Court, Portmarnock
€650k Property Team Noel Kelly (01) 846 2752
It's a five-minute walk to the beach from 17 Burrow Court, a four-bedroom detached house in a cul de sac off the Strand Road in Portmarnock. It's 1,464 sq ft in size, the integral garage having been converted to a study or playroom to the left of the entrance hall. To the right there's a long living and dining room running the full length of the house, with windows front and back and a fireplace. The kitchen is at the back of the house, with doors to the garden, and the four bedrooms and main bathroom are upstairs.
9 Beach Park, Portmarnock
€650k REA Grimes (01) 849 0129
Beach Park is at Blackberry Lane in Portmarnock - so-called, presumably, because there must once have been an abundance of blackberries there. You won't find too many nowadays, but the estate name is apt, as it's less than 10 minutes' walk from the strand. This is a six-bedroom detached house measuring 1,787 sq ft. Four of the bedrooms - all en-suite - are upstairs, and the other two are on the ground floor. Also downstairs is a sitting/dining room with a fireplace, kitchen, conservatory and playroom or TV room.
70A Wendell Ave, Portmarnock
€615k Sherry FitzGerald Blanc (01) 845 4500
If you turn left at the gate of 70A Wendell Avenue and walk for about 400 metres, you'll reach the beach. The house is across the street from Portmarnock shopping centre, so stocking up on picnic materials should be a breeze. Built in 2005, it is a recent addition to the estate, between Numbers 69 and 70. It's 1,773 sq ft with four bedrooms, all on the first floor, with the main bedroom en-suite, and two more rooms at attic level. The ground floor has a living room, a family room, and kitchen and breakfast room with separate utility.
77 Martello Court, Portmarnock
€500k Corry Estates (01) 846 1122
Number 77 Martello Court is just under a kilometre from the beach. But if you prefer your bathing water chlorinated, it's only half that distance from Portmarnock Sports and Leisure Club, where there's a 25-metre pool. The house is semi-detached and has been extended to 1,464 sq ft, adding a skylit galley kitchen, opening off the breakfast room. The other living rooms consist of a family room and a lounge with doors to the garden. There's also a guest toilet, with the main bathroom upstairs along with the four bedrooms.
