Four on the market: north Dublin bungalows
A choice of four bungalow properties currently available to buy in north Dublin.
177 Seafield Road East, D3
€995k Sherry FitzGerald Killester (01) 833 6555
Out the back of 177 Seafield Road East in Clontarf is a pleasantly square garden, about 50ft by 50ft, that's ready to be taken in hand. There's plenty of scope to add colour, and there's also a patio to enjoy your handiwork when you're finished. The house itself needs improvement too, as it's dated, but there's quite a bit of space inside, at 1,829 sq ft. That includes five bedrooms with a bathroom and a shower room to go with them. Elsewhere there's a living room and a den, both with fireplaces, and a large kitchen/ dining room.
26 Ashgrove, Kinsealy, Co Dublin
€400k Property Team Noel Kelly (01) 846 2752
Number 26 Ashgrove is in a small, U-shaped cul de sac estate off Baskin Lane overlooking a common green area to the front, and with countryside views from the back. It's a three-bedroom bungalow measuring 1,345 sq ft, and as it's a dormer, the bedrooms are all upstairs, one en-suite. Downstairs there's a lounge at the front, with a fireplace, and a kitchen and dining room and family room at the back, with French doors to the garden. The garden itself has a lawn flanked by flowerbeds, with a patio and shed.
90 Abbeyfield, Killester, D5
€550k Quillsen Fairview (01) 833 5844
You've got only 872 sq ft to play with in 90 Abbeyfield in Killester. Hidden behind this little semi-detached bungalow is a massive 131ft back garden. New owners will likely follow the example of nearly all the neighbours and extend the house. At present it has two bedrooms to the left of the entrance hall and sitting room and kitchen to the right. The kitchen opens into a rear hallway and the third bedroom is in an extension. There's parking on the front drive, and it's less than 10 minutes' walk to Killester DART station.
‘Errill’, 38 Howth Road, D13
€750k Gallagher Quigley (01) 818 3000
'Errill' is a dainty 1930s detached bungalow down the road from the Methodist Church in Sutton, and it's as neat as a pin inside, having been completely refurbished recently. Its energy efficiency has also been dragged into the 21st century, and is now B3. It still has elegant period features, not least of which are some rather statuesque broadleaf trees in the front garden. The house is 1,001 sq ft and has three bedrooms. The living room has a cast-iron fireplace, and there's a wood-burning stove in the kitchen.
