Four on the market: semi-detached in south county Dublin
These four properties offer semi-detached living on the southside of Dublin.
73 Hampton Park, Booterstown
€795k Hunters Estate Agent, (01) 275 1640
The principal floor space at 73 Hampton Park amounts to 1,432 sq ft but there's a converted attic as well, measuring another 269 sq ft, with twin skylights. Needless to say that's used as a bedroom and has an en suite shower. The first floor has the four official bedrooms, with one en suite, and the family bathroom. The ground floor has two reception rooms linked by double doors - a front living room and a rear dining room with French doors to the garden. The kitchen is at the back and there's also a playroom off the hall, in the converted garage.
35 The Poplars, Monkstown
€410k Property Partners O'Brien Swaine, (01) 298 8508
The Poplars was built in the grounds of a 19th-century house named Riversdale which, amazingly enough, is still standing and has not been turned into apartments. No35 is attached to its neighbours at the back as well as at the side, but it does have a little south-facing side patio garden of its own, as well as the communal gardens round about the place. It was refurbished in 2009 and got an attic conversion for use as storage. There are two bedrooms below that on the first floor, and on the ground floor a living room with a fireplace and patio doors, with the kitchen off it. Management fees are €650 a year.
5 Woodlands Avenue, Stillorgan
€775k Lisney Dundrum, (01) 296 3662
The back garden of 5 Woodlands Avenue has evidently been dearly loved down through the years. It measures some 55ft in length and faces south-east and it's full of mature planting with plenty of places to pause and sit. You can reach it from both the family room and the lean-to conservatory at the back of the house. The family room is off the kitchen and the conservatory opens from the open-plan dining room and lounge, and there's also an adjoining garage. Upstairs there are three bedrooms and a shower room, in a total floor area of just under 1,400 sq ft. It's across the road from Oatlands secondary school for boys.
17 Obelisk Walk, Blackrock
€450k Janet Carroll, (087) 400 2020
The Obelisk in the address refers to the Stillorgan Obelisk, built in 1727. You really can't miss it as it's 100ft high and only 200 metres away, and there's nothing between it and 17 Obelisk Walk but a small park. No17 is nominally semi-detached but like its neighbours it's actually conjoined at the back as well to a house facing Obelisk Avenue. This means there's no back garden so it's low-maintenance with a paved, easterly front garden. It measures 818 sq ft with two bedrooms upstairs, one with an en suite and balcony. Downstairs is a kitchen to the front and a square, dual-aspect living and dining room with patio doors.
