Four cul-de-sacs on the market in Dublin 18
A selection of four properties currently available to buy which come with the added benefit of being cul-de-sacs
The Rookery, Rathmichael
€850k Hunters, (01) 289 7840
An Post describes The Rookery at Ferndale Road as being in Shankill, but it's in the parish of Rathmichael and is a short distance from the pretty Anglican church dating from 1864. It's detached and in a leafy spot, and is surrounded by an acre of verdant gardens of its own, giving it quite a bit of seclusion. The house itself offers 1,991 sq ft of accommodation, with four bedrooms upstairs, one of them en suite. The ground floor has a dual-aspect living room with a fireplace and French doors, a family room (also dual-aspect and with French doors), and an open-plan kitchen and sun room with a wood-burning stove.
Oldcourt, Brighton Avenue, Foxrock
€1.395m Lisney Leeson Street, (01) 662 4511
Brighton Avenue is a long cul-de-sac, veering off into other, similarly-named cul-de-sacs in the environs of Carrickmines House. Oldcourt is close to the Brighton Road end, and less than five minutes' drive from Junction 15 of the M50. Oldcourt is detached and measures 2,580 sq ft. The first floor has three of the four bedrooms, including the master bedroom with an en suite and walk-in wardrobe. The fourth bedroom (also en suite) is on the ground floor, along with four reception rooms and kitchen, all arranged around a triangular entrance hall. There's also a detached garage.
3 Glencairn Lawn, Leopardstown
€455k Property Partners O’Brien Swaine, (01) 298 8508
If you walk due south of Number 3 Glencairn Lawn, you're reach The Gallops Luas stop in less than five minutes. Alternatively you could canter off in a north-easterly direction towards Leopardstown Racecourse, about 700 metres away as the crow flies. Number 3 is a modestly-sized semi-detached home measuring 881 sq ft, but some of the other houses in the neighbourhood have been extended out the back so there may be options there. It is in good decorative order, with a living room and kitchen, linked by an archway, on the ground floor, and there are three bedrooms and family bathroom upstairs.
11 Belarmine Walk, Stepaside
€395k Sherry FitzGerald Foxrock, (01) 289 4386
Part of the growing Belarmine development built by Castlethorn Construction, Number 11 Belarmine Walk was completed only a year ago, so it's still as fresh as a daisy. It's a terraced, two-storey townhouse measuring 915 sq ft, and it has an enviable A2 energy rating, with double-glazing and solar panels. The two bedrooms are on the first floor, and both have en suites (one with a shower and the other with a bath and shower). Back on the ground floor, the eat-in kitchen is at the front, and has a door to a living room at the back, which extends the whole width of the house and has French doors to a lawned back garden.
