Where: Dunbrian, 714 Howth Road, Blackbanks, Dublin 5
Details: Five-bedroom detached home
This five-bedroom house stands on secluded grounds in the sought-after-address of Blackbanks on the Howth Road in north Dublin.
With an asking price of €1.35m, Dunbrian originally dates from 1950, but it has been substantially extended and modernised by its owners over the past 12 years.
Overall, Dunbrian extends to some 297sqm in size. The house comprises a living room and lounge/dining room, both with open marble fireplaces and feature bay windows, a study with fitted bookcases, a garden room with vaulted ceiling, Velux windows, and French doors leading onto the patio, as well as a family room with solid fuel stove, and a kitchen/breakfast room with fitted oak presses and integrated appliances, and further access to the patio and back garden.
Upstairs, there are five good-sized bedrooms. The master is en suite with bath/shower, while all rooms have either built-in or fitted wardrobes. The main bathroom has a self-contained power shower with radio and lighting, as well as a bath. The attic, meanwhile, is accessed by pulldown ladder and has three Velux windows, and is floored, carpeted and insulated to serve as a storage area or for conversion into an office/study.
Outside, the house is approached by a tarmac driveway with good off-street car parking to the front. At the back there is a well-stocked garden with lawns, decking and patio areas.
Dunbrian is just a six-minute walk from Raheny Village and all the local amenities are nearby, including a DART station and well-established shopping facilities. Both national and secondary schools are close-by. Dublin city centre is less than five miles away.
