The new owners of 8 Glenalua Terrace will have no excuse to be lazy, with Killiney Hill just a short walk away. The Hill is always mobbed with locals who are taking their dogs on the loop walk, visiting the playground with their children, or just sitting and taking in the views of the bay.
Number 8 is a two-bedroom, two-storey cottage with a floor area of 926 sq ft. The house is in walk-in condition with a modern white fitted kitchen that has the benefit of floor units to provide that much-needed extra storage that we all crave. Built-in Miele appliances include an oven, gas hob and microwave.
Folding glass doors separate the kitchen and living area, which is a bright room with timber floors, gas fire and doors out to the garden.
There is a guest WC, with shower, off the kitchen.
The private back garden has steps up to a paved patio area and a Barna shed that is wired and plumbed.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms. The master has an en-suite bathroom and doors out to a roof area, which could be turned into a terrace or possibly used to extend the property, subject to planning. Both bedrooms have built-in wardrobes.
Killiney DART station is a 15-minute walk away and the area is on the 59 bus route. The coastal location isn't the only thing that attracts families to Killiney, the area is also known for the nearby schools, which include Castlepark, Rathdown, Loreto Dalkey and Wyvern to name but a few.
The neighbouring Dalkey village has a great choice of restaurants, cafes and pubs so you never have to travel far for a good feed.
