Looking good in Rathfarnham with smart house close to Marlay Park
28 Eden Court , D16 €595k
You'll have no excuse not to be impossibly fit and impeccably groomed if you live at No28 Eden Court in Rathfarnham, D16.
It's just off Grange Road and across the street from Marlay Park, where you can play tennis, cricket or golf, or just go for a walk or a run.
There's also small retail centre right next door to the estate, the Eden Centre. There you'll find a fitness studio where they offer spin classes and kettle bell training and the like, and there's also a hair and beauty salon.
The only thing which may prove too much of a temptation amid all your efforts is that No28 is also around the corner from the 18th-century Eden House pub, where you can undo all the good you've done with pints of Guinness and plates of nachos.
However, No28 itself might supply some inspiration for keeping you on the straight and narrow, because it's a fine example of what impeccable grooming looks like in a house.
Built in the late 1990s, the place still measures its original 1,287 sq ft, so there may be the option now to put up a little sunroom out the back at least, if desired.
At it stands, the ground floor consists of an open-plan kitchen and dining room at the back of the house, all done out in a pale palette with granite countertops.
There are French doors from here to a pretty back garden, paved and gravelled, with climbers and shrubs.
At the front there's a living room with a bay window and a granite fireplace fitted with a wood-burning stove.
There's also a guest toilet on the ground floor, while the family bathroom upstairs has a bath with an overhead shower.
The four bedrooms (one en suite) are also upstairs.
