Four on the market near St Anne's Park
A choice of four properties currently available to buy in Clontarf and Raheny close to St. Anne's Park.
Mount Prospect Grove, Clontarf
€575k DNG Fairview, (01) 833 1802
From 5 Mount Prospect Grove, you can walk to the Rose Garden at St Anne's Park in less than five minutes. Failing that, you could always plant a rose garden of your own in the 50ft back garden. The house also looks over a public green area at the front, lined with hedges and dotted with trees and shrubs. It's a three-bedroom end-terrace property, in good decorative order, with two reception rooms on the ground floor and a kitchen at the back. Total size is 1,238 sq ft, and there's a 300 sq ft garage giving onto a back laneway.
5 Baymount Park, Clontarf, D3
€895k Gallagher Quigley, (01) 818 3000
This redbrick semi-detached house has a modest floor area of 1,292 sq ft, but it comes with full planning permission for a two-storey extension to increase it to 2,470 sq ft. It has a living room, family room, dining room and kitchen, with an adjoining garage. Upstairs are three bedrooms and a bathroom. The extension will create a much bigger kitchen, and add one or possibly two more bedrooms, one en-suite. Planning permission also includes a 260 sq attic. The back garden is 120ft long, but the extension will eat up some of that.
Watermill Lawn, Raheny, D5
€695k Quillsen Fairview, (01) 833 5844
Watermill Lawn is a small cul-de-sac just off Watermill Road, at the northern edge of St Anne's Park, and about two minutes' walk from a park entrance. Number 19 is 1,830 sq ft, with four first-floor bedrooms, one with an en-suite. Downstairs there's a TV room to the left of the entrance hall and an open-plan dining room and lounge to the right, with two bay windows. The kitchen has an adjoining breakfast room with a door to the back garden. The house is in good order but would benefit from some cosmetic improvements.
Mount Prospect Drive, Clontarf
€550k Sherry FitzGerald Killester, (01) 833 6555
The living rooms in number 34, a redbrick terraced house, have been knocked through, so daylight drifts right through. To the right of the entrance hall is a living room, and this leads via an archway into an open-plan kitchen and dining room at the back, where there are French doors to a deck outside. On the first floor are three bedrooms and a bathroom, and there's another room in the converted attic that's in use as a fourth bedroom. Below the deck the south-facing back garden has a lawn and some mature shrubs.
