Four on the market: in Lucan
A selection of four properties on the market in sought-after Lucan.
Westwinds, The Crescent
€900k REA McDonald (01) 628 0625
The Crescent is a terrace of late 18th-century houses built to accommodate an overspill of guests from the nearby Spa Hotel, which opened in 1758. 'Westwinds' was built in the 1990s in a style to match its Georgian neighbours, and it enjoys the same pleasant setting of the hotel grounds, with Lucan Golf Club to the rear. It's 2,485 sq ft in size on four levels. At entrance level on the ground floor there are two reception rooms - a living room and a drawing room, both with fireplaces. The lower ground floor has the kitchen, a family room and a sunroom. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, both en-suite, and another two bedrooms on the second floor.
Hazelwood, 9 Vesey Park
€995k DNG Lucan (01) 628 0400
Lucan's Vesey Park is part of a larger Griffeen Valley Park scheme which extends over 200 acres. The horseshoe-shaped development that is also known as Vesey Park consists of 15 detached houses, and they're nicely situated, benefiting from eight acres of woodland and wetland, as Vesey Park surrounds the estate. Hazelwood, at Number 9, is at the back of the cul-de-sac. And as it's on a 0.3 acre site, the gardens are substantial. Inside it's 2,200 sq ft with five bedrooms on the first floor. The ground floor has a dual-aspect sitting room with French doors, a dining room, a bar, and an L-shaped kitchen.
4 Cooldrinagh Lane
€385k REA McDonald (01) 628 0625
An Post will inform you that Cooldrinagh Lane is actually in Leixlip, but it's in walking distance of Lucan village and only about three minutes' drive from the M4/N4. It's a 1930s-built cottage measuring 786 sq ft, but as it's on a site of 0.37 acres, there is plenty of room to extend it. As it stands it has two bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes and one with a fireplace. Elsewhere there's a living room with another fireplace, a shower room, and a fitted kitchen. The gardens are lawned out the front and there are various block-built sheds in the back yard.
€465k DNG Lucan (01) 628 0400

It has five bedrooms - three on the first floor with one en-suite, and the other two on the top floor sharing an en-suite. The ground floor has a living room at the front, and a kitchen and dining room opening into a skylit family room at the back, with folding doors to the patio and garden.
