Four on the market: In Dundrum
A choice of four properties currently on the market in much-sought-after Dundrum.
San Loradell, Taney Park, Dundrum, D14
€745k Vincent Finnegan (01) 298 4695
In itself, San Loradell may be a relatively unprepossessing G-rated bungalow, but it does occupy a quarter-acre corner site so there's scope to be imaginative with it if you can secure the co-operation of Dún Laoghaire Rathdown county council. It's 1,500 sq ft as it is, all on one floor, and has four bedrooms, two of them showing off the 70s fashion for bedroom sinks. The main reception room is a living room/dining room with a curved stone fireplace and sliding patio doors. The kitchen also has a door to the garden, where there's a raised deck and lawn.
6 Sweetmount Avenue, Dundrum, D14
€725k Lisney Dundrum (01) 296 3662
You're very much in the thick of things at No6 Sweetmount Avenue. It's across the road from the shopping centre and the Luas stop, and just down the street from Dundrum's Carnegie library. No6 needs modernising now, and renovators hoping to extend will find space both in the adjoining garage and in the west-facing back garden. As it stands it's 1,722 sq ft with four first-floor bedrooms. Downstairs, as well as the garage, there's a living room and a long (26ft) rear dining room with a sliding patio door. Next to this is the kitchen and a guest toilet.
21 Annaville Park, Dundrum, D14
€595k Lisney Dundrum (01) 296 3662
Annaville Park opens east off Dundrum Road and is bounded to the east by the grounds of the Central Mental Hospital. No21 is a pre-war 1,152 sq ft house with the long (59ft) garden typical of the era, with a lawn and mature shrubs. Some reconfiguring of the interior layout would improve access to the garden, which at present is reached from an open-plan kitchen and dining room. At the rear of the ground floor is a study or spare bedroom and a shower room, and there's a living room to the front with a fireplace. Three more bedrooms can be found on the first floor, along with a bathroom and separate toilet.
64 Ailesbury Grove, Dundrum, D16
€795k Sherry Fitzgerald Dundrum (01) 296 1822
Having had its garden divided for the building of a new house next door (No64A) in the early 2000s, No64 was then extended itself in 2007. It now measures 1,701 sq ft and has a swanky, open-plan kitchen, sitting room and dining room at the back - L-shaped and lit by two sets of patio doors and by skylights. There's also a front living room off the entrance hall, with a sandstone fireplace. The first floor has three bedrooms, all doubles, and the main one has an en-suite shower. The main bathroom on this floor has a bath and a walk-in shower.
