Four on the market: in Stillorgan, Co Dublin
A choice of four properties currently available to buy in Stillorgan.
81 Slieve Rua Drive
€645k Young’s, (01) 497 5581
There's the possibility of carving a bit more space out of No81 Slieve Rua Drive without building on. It's 1,625 sq ft including an integral garage that hasn't been converted to living space, and there's the option of spreading upwards into the attic, depending on planning permission. As it stands, the space includes four bedrooms (one a single) on the first floor, where there's also a bathroom and a separate shower. Downstairs there's a living room, a kitchen and a dining room with French doors to a sunroom. The back garden is almost 50ft long and is entirely paved, and there's off-street parking on the front drive.
67 Patrician Villas
€450k Allen & Jacobs, (01) 210 0360
No67 Patrician Villas last sold in 2015, fetching €360,000 according to the Property Price Register. Four years later it's back on the market having had a substantial makeover and has either two or three bedrooms depending on your preference. The ground floor consists of an open-plan living room and kitchen to the left of the entrance hall, while to the right is a lounge or extra bedroom, with French doors to a 42ft lawned back garden with a deck at the end of it. The first floor has two double bedrooms and a bathroom, and the floor area is 1,012 sq ft in total.
130 Lower Kilmacud Road
€680k Property Partners O’Brien Swaine, (01) 298 8508
No130 Lower Kilmacud Road is across the street from Mount Anville Primary School, so you can forget about the motoring anarchy that is the school run - if you have daughters at least (it's a girls' school). If you have sons, you might have to make your way to Oatlands, a 20-minute walk away. No130 was refurbished in 2010 and is now in slick decorative order. It's a three-bedroom semi measuring 1,152 sq ft and has an adjoining garage. On the ground floor there's a front living room with fireplace and a rear kitchen-diner with French doors to a patio and lawned garden. Upstaris are three bedrooms and the main bathroom.
33 Merville Road
€635k DNG Stillorgan, (01) 283 2700
Merville Road is a mature suburb consisting mainly of bungalows, many of whose owners have secured planning permission to extend them. No33 might be a candidate for similar treatment, but if you don't want to get into a major construction project, you could try co-opting the garage. The attic has already been converted. The bungalow measures 1,098 sq ft as it is, and needs some modernising. It consists of a front sitting room with a wood floor and a kitchen with a door to the back. There are three bedrooms and a separate shower room and toilet. An open-tread stairwell in the hall leads up to the converted attic.
