Dressed to the nines in Sutton for neighbours who are on course
Rowan, 8A Station Road, Sutton, D13 €1.2m
If the new owners of 8A Station Road in Sutton, Dublin 13, plan on lounging around much in the back garden, they might want to give careful thought to what they're wearing.
The garden backs directly on to Sutton Golf Course, a club that has quite fastidious ideas about proper attire. Under the Sutton dress code, you're not allowed to wear jeans, tracksuits, collarless shirts or training shoes, and you must not wear your trousers tucked into your socks (in case that's something you've been making a habit of). Clearly it would be preferable if you didn't wear shorts but if you absolutely must, then they should be tailored and should reach to your knees, and you must wear knee-length socks with them or failing that, short white socks.
As it happens there's quite a bit of mature verdure supplying privacy between the garden and the golf course, so the members shouldn't be able to see you there in your dressing gown, with your pyjamas tucked into your socks.
No8A, known as Rowan, is set well back from the road, behind No8, and is not even five minutes' walk from Sutton Dart station.
It's a 1,894 sq ft dormer bungalow, although without the blockish footprint usually going with that description. The upper storey consists of two bedrooms, both with ensuite showers, one each side of a well-lit landing with built-in storage.
Another two bedrooms (one ensuite) can be found on the ground floor, to one side of the house, leaving the whole southern elevation for the living rooms. There's a sitting room and a living room at opposite ends of the open-plan kitchen and dining room, which has floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the front garden. There's also a timber studio in the back garden.
Rowan is for sale for €1.2m with JB Kelly (01) 839 3402.
