Four on the market: northside homes with attic conversions
These four northside properties come with the addition of a converted attic.
41 Kincora Grove, Clontarf, D3
€825k Sherry FitzGerald Killester, (01) 833 6555
Both the attic and the adjoining garage at No 41 Kincora Grove have been converted, and on top of that the house has been extended at the back, so it has ended up with an overall living space of 1,991 sq ft. The garage has become a playroom off the entrance hall, while the living room and dining room opposite have been knocked into one. At the back is the extended kitchen with skylights, a corner window and sliding doors to the garden. The first floor has the four bedrooms and a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath, and the converted attic is used as a study and guest room.
16 Connaught Street, Phibsboro, D7
€599,950 Get Property, (01) 613 7704
At the end of the back garden of No 16 Connaught Street there are electric shutters, so you can park in the garden if you don't mind ruining your lawn. Non-motorists should be perfectly at ease here too, though, as Cabra Luas stop is a five-minute walk away. The house has been extended to 1,633 sq ft with a living room and kitchen at ground level, both with doors to the garden. There's also a utility and shower room on this level, while at entrance level there's a front reception room or bedroom. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one of them en suite, and the converted attic is used as a bedroom as well.
7A Danieli Drive, Artane, D5
€490k Mason Estate Phibsboro, (01) 830 4000
To describe what you'll find on the top floor of No 7A Danieli Drive as an 'attic conversion' would be a serious understatement. It's more of a rooftop conservatory flooded with light from skylights, and it's an artist's studio. An artist's hand is visible in the two side gardens as well, where there's a pond, patios, and profuse flowers and shrubs. No 7A is an unusual architect-designed house with three first-floor bedrooms, the main one with an en suite and walk-in wardrobe. The ground floor has the kitchen and two reception rooms, each with French doors to those colourful gardens.
8 Cliftonville Road, Glasnevin, D9
€850k DNG Phibsboro, (01) 830 0989
Those who work at home will have their choice of spaces in which to labour at No 8 Cliftonville Road. As well as its converted attic, which has an en suite shower, there's also an office in the detached garage outside, also with an en suite shower. At present the attic is used as an extra bedroom, adding to the four bedrooms on the first floor. On the ground floor there are two formal reception rooms, both with fireplaces, and an extended kitchen and dining room at the back with huge French doors giving onto the garden. The house measures 1,651 sq ft in total.
