Four on the market: four-beds in Terenure
These four properties offer four-bed living in the popular area of Terenure.
94 Rathfarnham Road, D6W
€925k Sherry FitzGerald Terenure, (01) 490 7433
Many of the houses along Rathfarnham Road have been extended, so Dublin City Council may take a sympathetic view of an application by the future owners of No 94. It has a single-storey adjoining garage and sizeable gardens front and back (the rear garden measuring 85ft). With a total floor area of 1528 sq ft, it has pleasant features inside including a double bay window, ceiling coving and stained glass, and it needs modernising. The ground floor has two linked reception rooms off the entrance hall, and there's a breakfast room with a kitchenette off it. The four bedrooms are upstairs.
123 Melvin Road, D6W
€540k DNG Terenure, (01) 490 9000
No 123 Melvin Road gained a complicated, architect-designed extension within the past decade, adding to an already distinctive existing polygonal footprint. It now measures 1,195 sq ft with the front door opening to a sort of triangular hallway. A utility and guest toilet are to one side of this, and to the other side there's a front living room with sliding doors to an open-plan dining room and kitchen. French doors there lead out to a 45ft garden with a patio and lawn. The four bedrooms are on the first floor and, thanks to its recent makeover, the whole place is shipshape and Bristol fashion inside.
Hughlings, 87 Bushy Park Road, D6
€1.395m Sherry FitzGerald Terenure, (01) 490 7433
Although there are many quite striking pre-war homes along Bushy Park Road, Hughlings is the stand-out. Built about 1930, it needs some decorative improvements now but there are good features to work with. Should you want to extend it, there's an 85ft garden out the back with a patio, lawn and mature shrubs. As it stands the house is 1,938 sq ft with an adjoining garage that hasn't been converted. The ground floor also has three reception rooms as well as a kitchen, sunroom and study, while the first floor has four bedrooms, one a single.
9 Rathdown Villas, D6W
€895k DNG Terenure, (01) 490 9000
Planning permission was granted last year to demolish the garage of No 9 Rathdown Villas and build a detached house with basement to the side - now it is an adjoining site. The street consists of a double row of identical Stringer-built homes dating from the 1930s, all gable-fronted, hefty and handsome. No 9, the last of them on the northern side, is said to have been the Stringer family home. It's 1,780 sq ft with four bedrooms on the first floor and three reception rooms on the ground floor, as well as a breakfast room off the kitchen. The decor needs an update.
