Heidelberg, at Ardilea in Clonskeagh, Dublin 14, is part of that warren of housing estates south-west of UCD that are all named after prestigious universities.

Heidelberg's is one of the world's oldest universities and the setting for the operetta, The Student Prince, from which everybody knows the number 'Drink! Drink! Drink!'

You'll find plenty of room to practise either singing or toasting your sweetheart, or both, at 7 Heidelberg, a 1960s-built detached dormer bungalow that's had a recent refurbishment.

Its main reception room is an open-plan living and dining room - a large, L-shaped space that offers plenty of room for a grand piano and a cabinet full of German drinking steins.

The room is dual-aspect, overlooking the front and side, and has an open fire.

A door there leads through to the kitchen and breakfast room, also dual-aspect and with sliding doors to the garden.

There are four bedrooms, all doubles, and the main one has an en-suite shower.

As it stands, the house measures 1,572 sq ft but should you want to extend it you'll have several options.

For one thing there's an integral garage. For another, the place has a big attic that hasn't been converted, although a pair of gable windows and a dormer window are already in place.

You may also consider building a rear extension, as some of the neighbours have done, as there's a roomy west-facing back garden with a patio and lawn and some mature trees.

There's a big front garden too, over 20 metres wide.

Heidelberg is reached from Roebuck Road and it's about 10 minutes' walk from UCD. Dundrum Town Centre is about three kilometres away.

Number 7 is for sale with Lynam Auctioneers (01) 296 5374 and has an asking price of €950,000.
