Permission to raise the roof at leafy Clontarf
146 Seafield Road East, Clontarf, Dublin 3
Four-bedroom detached house with large private back garden
Close to the seafront in Clontarf, this house is a substantial 1930s four-bedroom redbrick in need of some modernisation. It has planning permission for major renovations including raising the roof to create a second floor master bedroom with sea views.
Architect Stephen Mason has created computer generated plans and images of what the house would look like post renovation.
As it stands now, the 158sqm house -- which was used as a location in the BBC TV series Inspector George Gently -- comprises entrance hall with polished timber floor; living room, original fireplace and timber floor; dining room, also with timber floor and fireplace, and sliding doors to the back garden; kitchen; family room; wet-room style shower room; and utility room.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms, a family bathroom and separate WC. The attic has been converted into a carpeted storage space. There is also a garage with access from the house.
The 100-foot-long back garden is very private and includes a patio area.
Pros: The planning permission and plans will save a lot of hassle.
Cons: One of the bedrooms is very small.
