Aillebrack is a detached single-storey family home located in the quiet residential area of Broomfield, Malahide.

The 281sqm house comes with approximately 0.44 acre of gardens, including lawns and patio areas, bounded by mature hedges, walls and fencing. The gardens are easily maintained and there is a large garage and ample room for horse-box or boat storage.

There may be development potential in terms of the gardens, and there is plenty of room to extend the existing accommodation subject to planning permission.

Limestone steps and double doors lead to the entrance hall, which has a parquet floor. Off the hall are the sitting room, dining room, family room, and kitchen/ breakfast room to the left, as well as the bedrooms to the right.

The main bedroom is to the front, and has an en suite bathroom.

A large sun room at the back of the house overlooks the rear garden and opens out on to a paved, landscaped patio area with pagodas and a water feature designed by Gerry Daly.

The location is equidistant to both Malahide Village and Portmarnock; both have schools, shops, supermarkets, restaurants and cafes. A bus stop close to the house is serviced by the 42, 142 and 42D routes, while both Malahide and Portmarnock are on the Dart line with a frequent service into Dublin city centre and further south.

Sporting facilities in the immediate locality include golf, sailing, GAA, horse riding, tennis and cricket.

Dublin Airport is all of 15 minutes away, while Portmarnock Beach and strand are just a few minutes' drive.

Base in Blackrock

Ardagh Avenue is a mature residential road close to Blackrock village, and No 3 is a three-bedroom, semi-detached bungalow built in 1960 that's ripe for refurbishment and extension. There is currently off-street parking to the front for two cars plus a garage. The rear garden is a good size and faces south-west - it's ideal for a family and offers plenty of potential for a creative buyer with a good architect. On the ground floor, there's a living room overlooking the rear garden and a bright kitchen/breakfast room with access to the garden and patio, plus a study and a double bedroom to the front. The family bathroom is on this level. Upstairs there are two further double bedrooms, one of which is en suite.

Get to Glasnevin

Built in 1927, No 36 Old Finglas Road is a four-bedroom detached bungalow on a double site. There are substantial gardens both front and rear that offer the potential to extend, subject to planning permission. The bungalow has been renovated twice since 2000 and is described as being in immaculate condition. Internally, the elegant period proportions have been used to create a comfortable modern home, which has 155sqm of living space. The large reception hallway has a 2.70m high ceiling, and there are hardwood timber floors throughout. The bathroom features a Victorian style free-standing bath and a separate shower unit. Outside the gardens are nicely mature, laid in lawn for the most part, with off-street parking for several cars.

Garden in Glenageary

30/30a Arnold Park in Glenageary is a 'two in one' property, consisting of a detached 4/5 bedroom bungalow on a large, private corner site of 0.22 of an acre, that comes with full planning permission to build a second three-bedroom detached house with 146sqm of living space on the site. This second house would have its own south-facing garden and off-street parking. Alternatively, new owners could decide to extend the existing property, subject to planning permission. The existing house has 134sqm of living space, and is described as in need of modernisation. There is planning permission for an attic conversion that would add two en suite bedrooms. This is a quiet residential area, popular with families, and the house overlooks a green area to the front.
