A choice of four properties offer close proximity to Malahide and Portmarnock.

3 Galtrim Grange, Broomfield

€795k Sherry FitzGerald Malahide (01) 845 4500

3 Galtrim Grange

The last time 3 Galtrim Grange changed hands was in 2014 when, according to the Property Price Register, it sold for €600,000. Four years later it's back on the market having been remodelled by the current owners, and it's now as clean as a whistle inside and out. Including a sunroom extension, the total space comes to 1,711 sq ft.  The sun room is off the open-plan kitchen and dining room at the back of the house, and it has double doors to a paved and lawned back garden. The dining room has double doors there to a bay-windowed front living room, and there are four bedrooms upstairs (one en-suite).

8 Hillcourt, Portmarnock

8 Hillcourt

The Hillcourt estate is right next to Portmarnock Community School, which is handy not just for school-going teenagers but for their parents as well. The adult education centre offers classes in everything from ballroom dancing to Mandarin Chinese. Number 8 is the second-last house on the cul-de-sac, which is reached from Carrickhill Road Upper. It's 1,943 sq ft with five bedrooms on the first floor, one of them giving onto a front balcony. Downstairs there are two reception rooms - lounge and dining room - linked by double doors, as well as a family room and a dual-aspect, squarish kitchen.

11 Abington, Malahide

€1.675m Sherry FitzGerald Malahide, (01) 845 4500

11 Abington

Celebrities once populated the millionaires' row that is Abington in Malahide, but among them was the director of a swimming pool company, who had a pool installed in his own house at Number 11. The pool is in the basement, along with a gym, changing rooms and a vast, 550 sq ft lounge. The ground floor has a living room with a fireplace, family room with doors to the front and rear gardens, play room, dining room, kitchen and conservatory, and there are five bedrooms on the first floor, all en suite. Above all that is a 900 sq ft attic, and the grounds also include a detached double garage with first-floor studio.

24 Carrickhill Heights, Pormarnock

€675k  Noel Kelly, (01) 846 2752

24 Carrickhill Heights

There are almost no garages left among the houses at Carrickhill Heights in Portmarnock. Successive occupants of the estate have understandably begrudged the family saloon a bedroom of its own, so they have nearly all converted their garages to living accommodation. The same applies to Number 24, where the garage has become a study. Other living rooms consist of an interconnected lounge and dining room, and an open-plan kitchen and breakfast room with patio doors. The first floor has four bedrooms and a bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath, and the overall floor area comes to 1,555 sq ft.
