A choice of four properties in proximity to the M50.
66 Charlestown Park, Finglas, D11
€345k Kelly Bradshaw Dalton, (01) 804 0500
Number 66 Charlestown Park is about five minutes' drive from the junction between the M50 and N2, so you can easily escape from there to the south side of the city, or make a break for the border at Aughnacloy. It's also handy for Charlestown Shopping Centre, which is less than five minutes' walk away. Number 66 is an end-of-terrace house measuring 1,541 sq ft on three floors. The ground floor has the living room and kitchen. There are four bedrooms (one en-suite) on the first floor, and a fifth bedroom, with en-suite and walk-in wardrobe, on the top floor.
176A Orwell Park View, D6W
€550k Lisney Terenure, (01) 492 4670
Number 176 Orwell Park View in Templeogue, once occupied a large corner site on an estate off Orwell Road. Then in 2006, Number 176A went up next door to it, with a shared side passage between the two houses. Unlike its neighbour though, Number 176A is detached. It measures 1,496 sq ft with four first-floor bedrooms (one en-suite). The ground floor has a bay-windowed living room at the front, with a fireplace, and an open-plan kitchen and family room at the back, with French doors to a lawned garden. It's about five minutes drive from here to Junction 11 of the M50.
9 Silver Pines, Stillorgan, Co Dublin
€495k DNG Stillorgan, (01) 283 2700
If you don't have a car, 9 Silver Pines is just five minutes' walk from Sandyford Luas stop. If you do, the M50 (Junction 14) is about four minutes' drive away. Silver Pines can be found off Brewery Road and Number 9 is towards the end of a cul-de-sac in quite a leafy setting. It's semi-detached and measures a fairly modest 1,044 sq ft, but there may be scope to extend into the lawned back garden. It has the kitchen to the front on the ground floor, with double doors leading to a living room at the back, giving onto the garden. There are three bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower.
Westfield House, Ballybride Rd, D18
€1.295m Sherry FitzGerald Foxrock, (01) 289 4386
Westfield is across the road from the pretty Anglican parish church of Rathmichael, which dates from 1864. It's also perched close to the roundabout where Ballybride Road meets Stonebridge Road and flies over the M50. It's on half an acre of grounds with a long driveway providing seclusion, and has a garden room with a hot tub and sauna. The house itself is 3,552 sq ft with six first-floor bedrooms, the main one with an en-suite and dressing room. Downstairs are four reception rooms, two with fireplaces, and a kitchen fitted with handmade cabinets, an island with a granite breakfast bar, and an Aga.
