Looking for a seaside home? Here's four on the market in Dun Laoghaire
A choice of four properties currently on the market in Dun Laoghaire.
17 Crosthwaite Park West
€945k Sherry FitzGerald Dun Laoghaire (01) 284 4422
The selling agents estimate that 17 Crosthwaite Park West could bring in a rental income of €85,000 a year as it stands, as it's in seven flats. If you want to convert it back into a family home, though, you'll end up with a 3,520 sq ft house with six or seven bedrooms, in an elegant Victorian square in Dun Laoghaire. It's on three floors with a raised basement, and there's a west-facing garden out the back. There's a railed front garden too, and a pleasant view over Crosthwaite Park itself.
17 Mellifont Avenue
€850k DNG Dun Laoghaire (01) 230 1616
Mellifont Avenue runs in a northerly direction from George's Street Upper, towards the sea. Number 17 has been recently refurbished but it's in two flats at present with a basement office. The agents say it will be a straightforward enough conversion back to a family home, even though it's listed. At entrance level there are two reception rooms and a kitchen. There are three bedrooms and another kitchen upstairs, while the basement is mostly open-plan. Total floor area is 2,530 sq ft. There's a garden out the back.
Grangewood, Pottery Road
€695k BK Earley (087) 794 2119
There's a small workshop in the back garden of Grangewood, a detached dormer bungalow at Pottery Road. It's about 15ft by 8ft, so just big enough for a studio, a home office or a pottery. The house is 1,900 sq ft with either three or four bedrooms. There are three on the first floor (one en-suite and one with a dressing room), but one is a single that could be used as an office. The other bedroom is downstairs, along with a living room, a drawing room, an eat-in kitchen, and a conservatory with sliding doors to the garden.
7 Stoneview Place
€450k Lisney Dun Laoghaire (01) 280 6820
The whole garden of 7 Stoneview Place has been paved, to the side and the back. At least this means that if you want to extend the house, or create off-street parking, it won't be to the detriment of any living things. The side patio is 44ft by 14ft and the back patio is 30ft by 11ft, so there's quite a bit of space available, and it's the last house in the cul-de-sac. The house at present is 840 sq ft, all on one floor, and it needs updating throughout. There are three bedrooms, a kitchen with a door to the garden, and a shower room.
