A choice of four properties currently available to buy in Killiney for under €1million
‘Triana’, 6 The Nurseries, Avondale Rd
€995k DNG Dun Laoghaire, (01) 230 1616
There's a snooker room on the ground floor of 'Triana', complete with a full-size snooker table which can be sold to the new owners if they want it. It isn't as if the snooker table is taking up scarce space, as there's also a family room, a living room, a dining room and a conservatory, in a 2,939 sq ft floor area. The ground floor also has the kitchen, where there are French doors to the garden, and two of the bedrooms. The other three bedrooms are upstairs, one with an en-suite shower. The house is set well back from the road at the end of a 50-metre avenue and has a neat, south-facing back garden with a lawn and raised borders.
35 Rock Lodge
€795k Mark Kelly & Associates, (01) 493 8969
There are some lovely sea views from 35 Rock Lodge, which stands in a secluded spot at the end of a leafy driveway and at the end of a cul-de-sac off Killiney Hill Road. It was built in the 1970s but has been extended and upgraded, so that it's now 1,851 sq ft with a very 21st-century energy rating of B3. The ground floor has four reception rooms - a dining room, a lounge, a living room and a study - as well as a dual-aspect kitchen with skylights and Dublin Bay views. There's also a guest wc downstairs. Upstairs are four bedrooms and the main bathroom.
26 Beech Court
€895k Savills South Dublin, (01) 288 5011
Full membership at Killiney Golf Club cost an eye-watering €8,250 last year, and there are plans to raise it to €10,000 this year. Still, at least you'll make a saving on transport if you live at 26 Beech Court as it's only around the corner from the club - a four-minute walk away. Number 26 is in a cul-de-sac and has a corner site. It's 2,013 sq ft with five first-floor bedrooms, one with an en-suite. Downstairs there's a dual-aspect living room, a dining room and a kitchen/breakfast room with a separate utility. The back garden has a tiered patio arrangement as well as a lawn and a garage, and there's off-street parking out front.
The Neale, Killiney Hill Road
€975k Janet Carroll, (01) 288 2020
The price of The Neale has lately been reduced by €100,000, from €1.075m to €975k. It's a pretty period house needing refurbishment, and it's beautifully situated although semi-detached. It had its last makeover 43 years ago and a new owner is likely to reconfigure the layout to make better use of its sea views, and possibly even extend it into the 0.34 acre garden. As it stands it's 2,574 sq ft with four bedrooms (one en-suite), a living room, a dining room, a study, a kitchen with separate breakfast room and a conservatory. The garden is above a courtyard and has a huge lawn and mature trees.
