Four on the market: four-beds in D14
These four properties offer four-bed living in well-appointed locations in Dublin 14.
4 Lower Churchtown Rd, Churchtown
€850k DNG Terenure, (01) 490 9000
Milltown Golf Club is across the street from 4 Churchtown Road Lower. As long as you can afford the cost of membership, you could get in 18 holes whenever you wanted. Failing that you can always observe someone else's game from your first-floor windows. Number 4 was built in the 1930s and has lovely period features inside and out, not least the arched front doorway. It's 1,389 sq ft and has both a converted attic and an adjoining garage. The attic is by way of your fourth bedroom, with the other three on the first floor. Downstairs there's a living room and a dining room linked by sliding doors, and an L-shaped kitchen giving onto a 70ft back garden.
20 Maple Road, Clonskeagh
€1.95m Sherry FitzGerald Ranelagh, (01) 496 9909
Disciples of detox may be drawn to 20 Maple Road, which has a timber building in the garden housing a hot tub and sauna. Despite that there's plenty of garden left over, as the site is 0.18 of an acre in all. The house was reportedly built by Crampton in the 1950s, but since then it's had a massive overhaul, now spanning 3,122 sq ft. The first floor has the four bedrooms, three of them en-suite. Downstairs there's a huge (35ft by 14ft) kitchen and dining room running the length of the house, along with a family room and a bay-windowed living room with a marble fireplace.
12 Taney Road, Dundrum
€795k Lisney Dundrum, (01) 296 3662
One of a pair of semi-detached houses at Taney Road, Number 12 has been given a double helping of charm by means of its coating of creeper and its blue windows. It has a 75ft garden out the back, so there's plenty of scope to extend it from its current 1,399 sq ft. The entrance is to the side of the house and there's an asymmetrical ground-floor layout with a living room, an open-plan dining room and family room, and a breakfast room opening to a galley kitchen. Upstairs are four bedrooms, two with built-in wardrobes, and a bathroom with separate toilet. Dundrum Luas stop is about three minutes' walk away.
33 Ballymace Green, Rathfarnham
€750k DNG Rathfarnham, (01) 490 4666
Ballymace Green is a short cul-de-sac off Anne Devlin Road, about half a kilometre from Rathfarnham Shopping Centre. Like so many houses of its era (1950s) it has a big back garden some 70ft long, as well as a lawned front garden. It needs some modernising inside now over its 1,250 sq ft of space. A new owner is likely to convert the adjoining garage and give better access from the kitchen to the back garden. The kitchen is next to a dining room with a fireplace, and there are double doors there to a front lounge, also with a fireplace. The four bedrooms (one a single) are upstairs.
