Four on the market: in Dundrum
A choice of four properties currently on the market in sought-after Dundrum.
20 Frankfort Park, D14
€895k Vincent Finnegan, (01) 298 4695
The rear gardens of the houses on the western side of Frankfort Park back onto the Luas line, and the Dundrum stop is about half a kilometre away to the south. Built in the first half of the 20th century, Number 20 has period features including an arched front door, open-string stairs, high ceilings and fireplaces. It's 2,142 sq ft with five first-floor bedrooms, two en-suite and one with a walk-in wardrobe. Downstairs there's a bay-windowed living room linked to a sitting room, both with fireplaces. The kitchen has a separate breakfast room and opens into a sunroom, and there's a study as well. Out the back is a long, well cared for garden facing west.
22 Clonard Road, D16
€615k Property Partners O’Brien Swaine, (01) 298 8508
There are two playgrounds in Ballawley Park, as well as football pitches, woodland walkways, outdoor gym equipment and a chance to let your dog off the lead. Number 22 Clonard Road is a five-minute walk from the entrance to the park, so your children and/or your dogs will be constantly pestering you to go up there. It's a semi-detached house that has grown to 1,776 sq ft thanks to a back extension and a garage conversion. The garage is now a playroom, and otherwise there are four reception rooms on the ground floor, all communicating with each other. The four bedrooms are upstairs.
7 The Orchard, Sweetmount Ave, D14
€495k Sherry FitzGerald Dundrum, (01) 296 1822
The Orchard is an arrangement of seven houses either side of Churchtown House in Dundrum, the housing having arrived in the 21st century presumably to replace a less necessary stand of fruit trees in the Big House garden. Number 7 is at the end of the terrace in this gated development, and measures 753 sq ft on two floors. The ground floor has the kitchen at the front and the living room at the back, where there's a fireplace and sliding doors to the lawned back garden, where there's room to plant an apple tree or two. Upstairs are two bedrooms, both en-suite. Annual management fees are €1,000.
34A Rosemount Estate, D14
€550k Lynam, (01) 296 5374
There is good privacy from all but soccer fans at 34A Rosemount Estate. To the side and rear, its garden adjoins the soccer pitches of Rosemount Mulvey FC. It's also handily situated for shoppers, as Dundrum's main street (as well as the Luas stop) are within 10 minutes' walk. The detached house is 1,249 sq ft and it needs a little modernising. It has three bedrooms upstairs, and on the ground floor there's a sitting room with an open fire, and an open-plan kitchen and dining room with a gas-fitted fireplace. Off the entrance hall is a wet room and a utility room giving access to the lawned back garden. It's on view tomorrow (April 21) at 1pm.
