Four on the market: near the M50
These four properties come with the added bonus of close proximity to the M50.
21 The Hill, Woodpark, Ballinteer, D16
€475k Lynam Auctioneers, (01) 296 5374
Although it's not to be recommended, you could easily walk to the M50 from 21 The Hill. Junction 13 (Dundrum) is just around the corner. You can also walk, in much greater safety, to Dundrum Town Centre, two kilometres away. The Hill is a tree-lined cul-de-sac lined with semi-detached houses, reached from Ballinteer Road. Number 21 has nice gardens front and back, not too sterile or suburban. The back garden has a wood cabin and a raised patio reached from the kitchen. The ground floor also has a separate dining room and a living room and there are three bedrooms upstairs.
55 Beaumont Road, Beaumont, D9
€590k Sherry FitzGerald Killester, (01) 833 6555
You would never be late for a flight again at 55 Beaumont Road, as it's only 10 minutes' drive from Dublin airport. The M1/M50 junction is even closer - six minutes up the Swords Road. Number 55 also has its own version of secure long-term parking in the form of a detached garage. The house is 1,798 sq ft and has front and side gardens if you wanted to extend it. This includes four bedrooms upstairs (two with original fireplaces). One is a single and might become an en suite. Downstairs are two interconnected formal reception rooms with fireplaces, a breakfast room and separate kitchen with a lean-to conservatory.
101 Sandyford Downs, Sandyford, D18
€475k Janet Carroll, (01) 288 2020
Number 101 Sandyford Downs has been in the same family since it was built in the 1990s, the current owner having bought it from their brother. It's a Sorohan-built terraced house on a cul-de-sac, less than 10 minutes' walk from Sandyford village and five minutes' drive from the M50 (Junction 14). The three bedrooms are upstairs (one en suite), along with the family bathroom, while the ground floor has a front living room with a gas-fitted fireplace and a rear kitchen/dining room with sliding doors to a nicely landscaped garden, with gravel and stone beds. There's a utility shed out there as well.
6 The Clovers, Castleknock, D15
€650k Sherry FitzGerald Castleknock, (01) 820 1800
The Clovers is a terrace of 13 red-brick townhouses sequestered on a cul-de-sac off Beechpark Avenue, with cobbled paving and mature trees. There's no real hint of the M50 from within this environment, but three minutes in the car will get you to the Navan Road junction. Number 6 measures 1,647 sq ft on three floors. The whole top floor is given over to the en suite master bedroom and there are two more bedroom on the first floor, both en suite. Downstairs there's a long front dining room or lounge opening to an extended rear living room and kitchen with a marble fireplace, skylights and French doors.
