Four on the market: in Dublin 14
These four properties offer much sought-after locations in Dublin 14.
89 Landscape Park, Churchtown
€695k Knight Frank (01) 634 2466
Landscape Park (and Crescent and Avenue) is named after a grand old vanished house named Landscape, which was to become the site of De La Salle College in the 1950s. No89 is semi-detached and has a cobbled front driveway with a lilac and a cherry blossom. The garage has been converted to a family room which opens into the rear utility and kitchen. There's also a front living room and rear dining room with French doors to a lawned back garden. The three bedrooms are upstairs along with a bathroom and separate toilet, in an overall space amounting to 1,389 sq ft.
83 Dodder Park Road, Rathfarnham
€565k Lisney Terenure (01) 492 4670
There's a good bit of scope to extend No83 Dodder Park Road, as it has an adjoining garage that extends some distance into the back garden, and several of the neighbours have extended. As it stands it's 1,022 sq ft with the three bedrooms on the first floor, along with a true-to-its-era bathroom and separate toilet. Downstairs there's a living room and a dining room, the latter with sliding doors to a lean-to conservatory, and a rear kitchen that opens to the garage. The back garden is some 40ft long with a lawn, and there's off-street parking on the front drive.
Hampton, Kilmacud Road Upper, Dundrum
€1.2m Sherry FitzGerald Dundrum (01) 296 1822
According to the selling agents, this is the first time Hampton has been on the market since it was built in the 1930s. Its best feature is the back garden, which measures 100ft by 55ft and backs on to the grounds of the Airfield estate, so there's grazing livestock for outdoor company. Indeed you could do a spot of ruminating yourself on the roof terrace above the garage. Inside, it's 1,765 sq ft with three first-floor bedrooms (the main one giving on to the roof terrace). The ground floor has two connected reception rooms, both with bay windows overlooking the garden, along with a kitchen and study.
2 Willowfield Avenue, Goatstown
€650k Property Team O’Mahony (01) 298 3500
Most of the houses at Willowfield Avenue have converted their garage and in some cases built over them, so a new owner might opt to the do the same with No2. It's one of a pair of semi-detached houses on the corner next to Goatstown Road and so is reasonably handy for the Luas at Dundrum, 20 minutes' walk away. Its three bedrooms are on the first floor and there are two reception rooms downstairs along with an L-shaped breakfast room and kitchen. It's 1,206 sq ft in all and needs updating.
