Make a Sutton move to Dublin 13
7 South Hill, Sutton, D13 €815k
South Hill is a cul-de-sac enclave of detached dormer bungalows on an elevated spot off St Fintan's Road in Sutton, Dublin 13 where many of the homes come with sea views.
Number 7 is on the eastern side of the estate - it overlooks a common green area to the front, while its back garden abuts a bare field fronting onto Carrickbrack Road, so there's a rustic quality to the whole place.
Although its proportions might look somewhat modest from the front, Number 7 actually offers 2,600 sq ft of accommodation inside and, though the décor is a little dated, there's good scope for a facelift in the four bedrooms, three reception rooms and a cheerful sun room.
The first of the reception rooms is a lounge with a bay window and a tiled fireplace.
There's also a dining room as well as a family room with a solid-fuel stove, and both of these rooms open into the sunroom, where there's a door to the side garden.
At the back of the house is a good-sized eat-in kitchen measuring roughly 20ft by 11ft, with glass double doors to the back garden, and a separate utility room.
Two of the four bedrooms are on the ground floor, both with fitted wardrobes, and the other two are upstairs. These include the swanky master bedroom, which has views of the Bull Island and comes with two walk-in wardrobes and an en suite bathroom.
There's also an attic room upstairs for storage.
Possibly the best feature of Number 7 is its back garden, which has been lovingly cared for. It combines smooth lawn with closely-planted shrub borders and flowerbeds, and there's a secluded patio to the southwest.
It's about a 35-minute walk from here to Sutton Cross Dart station, but it's a pleasant route along the coast.
Number 7 South Hill is for sale for €815,000 with Gallagher Quigley, (01) 818 3000.
