Four on the market: Dublin homes with a price cut
A choice of four Dublin properties which come with the benefit of a price cut.
3 Richmond Hill, Monkstown
€1.85m Herman White Estates, (01) 497 2245
When they were built in the early 19th century, the houses at Richmond Hill in Monkstown, Co Dublin came with enormous back gardens. Unusually enough, 3 Richmond Hill still has a 250ft back garden, which now also includes a self-contained two-bedroom mews measuring 1,500 sq ft. The main house is 3,700 sq ft on three storeys and a basement, where there’s a kitchen, family room and study. The ground floor has two formal reception rooms and there are four bedrooms on the upper floors, some with views across the back garden towards Dublin Bay. The price was cut by €100k on January 15.
Hill of the Grange, Kilternan, D18
€1.2m Colliers, (01) 633 3700
The price of this dignified detached bungalow at Barnaslingan Lane, was cut by €200k late last year. You get a lot of house for the money. Built in 1998, it’s 3,638 sq ft including a garage and workshop. It stands on four acres with stables and a sand arena and has views of Dublin Bay. The house is all on one floor and has five bedrooms (one en-suite), a big kitchen and family room, a living room and a sunroom with French doors to the garden, where there’s an outdoor fireplace in cut stone. The garage or workshop has various storerooms off it and could be used for a home enterprise or as a gym or cinema.
The Furrow, 5 Hainault Road, D18
€1.25m Bennetts, (01) 260 2520
Originally priced at €1.495m, The Furrow is a 1940s-built detached house in Foxrock now in urgent need of an upgrade. It’s a reasonable size, at 2,034 sq ft, but if you need more space it’s on 0.3 of an acre. That includes a lovely long back garden which you could extend into even without encroaching too much on the very pretty lawn and stand of fruit trees. The ground floor has four reception rooms — a family room, a study, a living room and a dining room, as well as the kitchen, all arranged around a bigger than average entrance hall. The four bedrooms and main bathroom are upstairs, and there’s also a garage adjoining.
9 Auburn Grove, Malahide, Co Dublin
€875k Sherry FitzGerald Blanc, (01) 845 4500
Auburn Grove is a small cul-de-sac estate across the road from Malahide Castle and Gardens. Number 9 is at the back of the estate, overlooking a bit of parkland past its own quite verdant front garden. It’s 1,725 sq ft on two floors, with four first-floor bedrooms, the original fifth bedroom having been converted into a dressing room for the en-suite master bedroom. Downstairs there’s a reception room on either side of the entrance hall, and a dining room and eat-in kitchen at the back of the house with doors to the patio and garden. It came down €50,000 in price earlier this month.
