Four bungalows on the market in South Dublin
A selection of four bungalow properties for sale in south Dublin.
5 Roebuck Avenue, Mount Merrion
€860k Vincent Finnegan, (01) 298 4695
Number 5 Roebuck Avenue is one of a row of cute red-roofed bungalows between The Rise and Stillorgan Road, and is one of the oldest settlements in Mount Merrion, which began to be developed in the 1920s. Built in 1929, Number 5 now needs modernising, and should you hope to extend it, there's a vast, 115 ft lawned back garden on the 0.22-acre site. At present it's 1,372 sq ft including a dormer level, where there are two bedrooms. The other two bedrooms are on the ground floor which also has a living room and a dining room linked by folding doors, an eat-in kitchen and an attached garage.
2 Eden Road Lower, Glasthule
€645k Sherry FitzGerald Dun Laoghaire, (01) 284 4422
Successive generations of the same family reportedly lived at 2 Eden Road for almost 100 years, from 1911 to 2002. It was then sold to its current owner, who modernised and extended the 19th-century cottage. It now stands at some 840 sq ft - a relatively small floor area that nevertheless manages to fit in three bedrooms, and one en-suite. Directly inside the porch is a living room with a tiled fireplace, and two of the bedrooms are off this room. Beyond is a skylit kitchen and dining room, where there are French doors to the garden, and the third bedroom is at the back, also with patio doors.
‘Timaru’, Mount Venus Road, D16
€1.1m Lisney Terenure, (01) 492 4670
Timaru is at Newtown Lane, a rustic cul-de-sac almost surrounded by Rathfarnham Golf Club, and about seven minutes' drive from Junction 12 of the M50. Built in 1978, it's on 0.86 of an acre and comes with three stables. Inside, it's a rather sprawling 3,000 sq ft all on one floor in an L-shape. The five bedrooms are all on one side of the house; two have en-suites and the master bedroom also has a walk-in wardrobe. At the other end there's a triple-aspect living and dining room, a study, and an oak-fitted kitchen with a picture window. As well as the stables there's also a 340 sq ft garage on the grounds.
4 Gowrie Park, Glenageary
€550k DNG Dun Laoghaire, (01) 230 1616
At present, 4 Gowrie Park has a floor area of 1,335 sq ft, and if you find that's enough space then all the better, as you'll get to keep the oasis of a back garden - 100 ft long - where there are mature ornamental trees, a lawn, flowering shrubs and a greenhouse. The garden needs little more than a bit of a tidy and there's off-street parking out the front to boot. Inside, though, the house itself does need refurbishment. It has a living room with a fireplace, an open-plan dining room and sunroom overlooking the back garden, a small kitchen and three bedrooms (one a single), as well as a garage to the side.
