On the Market: Off the campus at Foster's Avenue
Fairways, or Number 18 Foster's Avenue, looks as if it was built at a time when Mount Merrion was a much quieter suburb than it is now.
It's a smallish detached bungalow at 1,109 square feet, but with a 100-foot back garden and an adjoining garage, from the days before galvanised steel when cars left outside would rust away before your eyes. At any rate, this means there's room to extend, either into the garden, into the garage, or both.
Fairways has two reception rooms and three bedrooms (one en suite). A small sunroom leads, oddly enough, off one of the bedrooms, and has a door to the garden.
Foster's Avenue is just off Stillorgan Road and about a 10-minute drive from the M50. The house is across the road from the Foster's Avenue entrance to UCD's Belfield campus.
Fairways is for sale for €595,000 through Allen & Jacobs in Mount Merrion (01 210 0360).
