It's got staying power
The owners of 'Mangerton', at 6 Hillcrest Downs in Sandyford, Dublin 18, have been in the house for a generation. That sort of tenure is fairly typical of this mature enclave in a cul-de-sac off Hillcrest Road.
'Mangerton' is a 1,550 sq ft dormer bungalow with four bedrooms. Reception rooms consist of a family room with a study off it, and a living room with a fireplace and large windows overlooking the garden.
Double glass doors connect the living room to an open-plan kitchen/dining room with patio doors. There's also a utility room off the kitchen.
Two of the bedrooms are on the ground floor, as well as a shower room. Another bathroom and two more bedrooms - one ensuite - are upstairs.
The back garden, with a lawn and patio and surrounded by mature trees, measures 75ft by 55ft, so there's room to extend.
The agent is Sherry FitzGerald Dundrum (01) 296 1822 and the price is €725,000.
