These four properties on the market in Dublin 16 offer three-bed living, with some stand-out features.
17 Woodstown Way, Knocklyon
€525k Sherry FitzGerald Templeogue, (01) 495 1111
The last time 17 Woodstown Way was sold was in 2014, when it fetched €437,000, according to the Property Price Register. It has been extended a couple of times since it was built and now stands at 1,702 sq ft, with the three bedrooms all on the first floor. The ground floor has a front living room with a fireplace and double doors to an extended, skylit kitchen and diner, with French doors to a neatly landscaped back garden. This level also has a playroom and utility along with an art studio, also with doors to the garden. There is a downstairs wc and a shower room upstairs with a walk-in shower cubicle.
17 Palmer Park, Rathfarnham
€375k DNG Rathfarnham, (01) 490 4666
Palmer Park is a small estate opening off Taylor's Lane, and a 10-minute walk down the road from there will get you to Marlay Park. No17 also has a big back garden of its own, with a patio, lawn and hedging. This might allow a new owner to extend the house, either there or to the side, from its current floor area of 801 sq ft. At present only the utility room leads to the back garden from inside the house. Also on the ground floor is a living room with an oak floor and a marble fireplace, and a kitchen, also with an oak floor and room for a breakfast table. The three bedrooms are upstairs.
32 College Park Way, Balally
€545k Property Partners O’Brien Swaine, (01) 298 8508
College Park Way is built on what would have been the farmyard of a property known as Moore Farm in the 19th century. Although there's nothing remotely agricultural about the place now, it's a handy spot from which to escape to the countryside, being about three minutes' drive from the M50. No32, at the end of the cul-de-sac, has a converted attic to serve as a fourth bedroom with an en suite toilet. Otherwise the three main bedrooms are on the first floor (one en suite). Downstairs there's a living room, kitchen, dining room and playroom with French doors to a west-facing back garden. It's 1,409 sq ft in all.
35 Ballintyre Downs, Ballinteer
€520k Lisney Dundrum, (01) 296 3662
Though not quite a gated estate, the Ballintyre development was built in 2004 in the grounds of the 19th century Ballintyre Hall, and the old gate lodge is still there at the entrance at Ballinteer Avenue. No35 is at the end of a cul-de-sac and right in the middle of a terrace of seven. It measures 1,184 sq ft and has had a recent refurbishment. The ground floor has a living room with a curved wall and a gas-fitted fireplace, and at the back is the eat-in kitchen with doors to a patio garden. The three bedrooms are upstairs, with one en suite. A management fee of €561 a year applies.
