Four on the market: in Castleknock, D15
A choice of four properties currently on the market in Castleknock.
11A Park Villas, Peck’s Lane
€850k DNG Castleknock, (01) 820 2800
Park Villas is a cul-de-sac opening from Peck's Lane and No11A is tucked away behind the back garden of No11, so it's quite secluded. Nevertheless, it's only about a kilometre from here to the M50 Blanchardstown junction. It's a detached dormer bungalow measuring 2,120 sq ft with two skylit bedrooms on the first floor, including the main bedroom which has an en suite and walk-in wardrobe. The ground floor has another three bedrooms, two with en suite showers (and one with a steam room). Also downstairs is a living room with a marble fireplace and a kitchen/dining room with doors to the back garden.
€585k Coonan Property, (01) 628 6128
The Collegewood estate was built in the first decade of this century by developer Larry Keegan's Kimpton Vale, which would later became known for demolishing a 19th-century convent in Terenure without planning permission. The Collegewood houses are holding up well, however, and No44 has gained a few extras since it was built, including zoned central heating. It's 1,873 sq ft on three floors, with the top floor given over to a master bedroom with a Juliet balcony, en suite and dressing room, and a study. Four more bedrooms are on the first floor and there are two reception rooms, a kitchen and sunroom downstairs.
41 Deerpark Road
€1.35m DNG Castleknock, (01) 820 2800
There are two Deerpark Roads in Dublin - one in Mount Merrion, near the Deerpark, and one in Castleknock, near Phoenix Park. It's less than 10 minutes' walk from 41 Deerpark Road to the Castleknock gate of the park. For wildlife and greenery at home, No41 has a south-facing back garden of its own, about 72ft long, which you can reach from both the dining room and the family room. The ground floor also has a front living room, a kitchen and an integral garage. Upstairs there are five bedrooms, two en suite and one with a walk-in wardrobe and doors to a south-facing balcony. Total internal space is 2,820 sq ft.
1 Castleknock Oaks, Laurel Lodge
€775k Sherry FitzGerald Castleknock, (01) 820 1800
It's not even five minutes' walk from 1 Castleknock Oaks to Castleknock train station, and, what's more, you can make it a pleasant walk by cutting through Laurel Lodge park and admiring the fine old trees there. No1 has a corner site and its grounds include a detached garage to the side, so there may be scope for extension there. Otherwise the house as it stands is 1,624 sq ft with four bedrooms upstairs, one with an en suite shower. Downstairs there are two main reception rooms - living room and dining room - communicating through double doors, as well as a family room and a kitchen with utility.
