Four on the market: near Dublin airport
A selection of four properties which are close to Dublin Airport.
16 Waterside Crescent, Malahide
€485k Sherry FitzGerald Blanc, (01) 845 4500
You could nearly walk to Dublin airport from 16 Waterside Crescent. It's less than five kilometres so it will take about an hour - a good incentive to travel light. It's in a development off the Swords Road in Malahide, and overlooks a large green area to the south. It's quite a bit longer than it is wide, measuring 1,497 sq ft. That includes four first-floor bedrooms with two en-suite. Downstairs there's a 17ft by 11ft kitchen at the back, as well as a dining room with French doors to the patio and lawned garden. Double doors in the dining room open to a living room at the front.
36 Shanliss Road, Santry, D9
€450k Noel Kelly, (01) 846 2752
The eastern end of Shanliss Road must be one of the safest districts in the capital, as the houses there back on to Santry Garda Station. Among them is Number 36, which has a shed at the end of the garden that could be used as a home office. The house itself is 1,488 sq ft, having gained a two-storey extension to the side. It has a living room, dining room and L-shaped kitchen on the ground floor, and five bedrooms upstairs (one with an en-suite shower). The Omni Park Shopping Centre is less than a kilometre away, and the airport is a 10-minute drive.
17A Cromcastle Road, Coolock, D5
€275k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
Number 17A Cromcastle Road is less than 10 minutes' drive from the airport, which you can reach from either the M50 and M1, or from the Swords Road. The house was built in 2001 on the corner of Cromcastle Avenue, about two minutes' walk from the entrance to Scoil Fhursa boys' national school. It's 1,141 sq ft with three bedrooms - two doubles and a single - on the first floor. The ground floor has a bay-windowed living room at the front, and an L-shaped kitchen and dining room at the back with French doors to the patio garden.
