Bird's eye view in north county Dublin for €900,000
At the Rogerstown Estuary Nature Reserve in north Co Dublin, you can observe various important species of waders and wildfowl, such as Brent Geese, black-tailed godwits, golden plovers and the like.
Thankfully, for less than keen birders, it's not absolutely necessary to enjoy the Rogerstown Estuary from within the confines of a birdwatch hide. And that's especially true if you live on the nearby Burrow Peninsula.
Meandros is a sprawling, five-bedroom bungalow at the north end of the Burrow Road in Portrane.
This places it on the landward side of the Burrow Peninsula, abutting the nature reserve. So there's nothing to stop you ignoring the birds altogether and just restfully enjoying the view from the house.
The bungalow is at the end of a cul de sac, approached via electric gates, and it's on a one-acre site. It's also right beside the sea, and there are sandy beaches and shore walks nearby if you do manage to work up enough interest in exerting yourself.
Inside, the reception rooms include a sunroom facing south on to patios and decking, and a large, open-plan kitchen/lounge surrounded by a double-sided fireplace with a range.
The house has five bedrooms, one of which is in use as a study at present. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite shower rooms and a third has self-contained washing facilities.
There's a utility room off the kitchen and also a garage that could be converted into living accommodation. It's heated by gas-fired central heating.
The seaside village of Portrane is about two kilometres way. It's about a 15 minute drive to the M1 motorway, and 20 minutes to Dublin Airport.
The agent for the sale of Meandros is Castle Estate Agents in Terenure (01 490 0700) and the asking price is €899,950.
