'Kafineves' is one of a row of dainty bungalows fronting on to the Malahide Demesne. The entrance to Malahide Castle and Gardens is only 100 metres away. Having been extended, the house is now 1,690 sq ft. And if that's not enough, you could knock into the garage. The rear extension has made room for an enlarged kitchen and breakfast room and an open-plan dining room and lounge. There's also a separate sitting room, as well as four bedrooms (one en-suite). The back garden has lawn, fruit trees and a patio.

About a 20-minute walk from the village of Ballyboughal in north Dublin, and a 20-minute drive from the airport, stands this detached bungalow on an acre of grounds. It's bigger than it looks from the front, at 2,300 sq ft, and has four bedrooms. At present one is used as a gym and another has a pool table. The main bedroom has an en-suite and walk-in wardrobe. There's also a sitting room, a dining room and a pine-fitted kitchen with a door to the garden. The grounds include a garage, a deck and a water feature.
€550k Kevin Flanigan Estates (01) 845 3459
Aquarius is situated all on its own, surrounded by farmland, along the Hearse Road in Donabate. The house itself is on an acre of grounds so the selling agents suggest you could apply for planning permission to put up another house. Alternatively you could keep the whole place to yourself. It's a dormer bungalow with four bedrooms upstairs, one en-suite. By way of reception rooms, there's a family room and an L-shaped living and dining room with a stone fireplace, as well as a kitchen with separate utility.

Also downstairs there's a dining room and a living room, both with fireplaces, along with a kitchen and kitchenette. There's a detached garage and an extremely long back garden, lawned and with a greenhouse and a concrete shed.
