Modern home in historic area
57A Belmont Avenue €925k
Belmont Avenue in Donnybrook, Dublin 4, takes its name from Belmont House, at the end of the street.
Belmont is said to be one of the oldest houses in Dublin and is shown on Rocque's 1760 map of the capital.
Belmont House is for sale at present for a cool €2.4m, but should you find yourself longing for a Belmont Avenue address, you can have one for somewhat less than that.
Number 57A Belmont Avenue might lack the historical bearing of its 18th century neighbour 200 metres down the street, but it does have charms of its own.
It's one of a terrace of three three-storey townhouses built in the early 2000s, and has modern advantages such as en-suite bedrooms, a clean and bright interior, and a creditable C1 energy rating.
It's 1,755 sq ft on three floors, with three bedrooms.
Two of the bedrooms are on the second floor, with one en-suite, and the third (also en-suite) is on the floor below them.
Also on the first floor is an L-shaped lounge with bifolding doors opening to a balcony, and you could turn this into your master bedroom if you were so minded (although you'd have to go upstairs for a bathroom).
The kitchen is on the ground floor at the front and has a marble-tiled floor and a marble-topped island with a breakfast bar.
At the back of the house is an open-plan living room and dining room with a marble fireplace and floor-to-ceiling doors giving onto the back garden.
The garden is a low-maintenance affair with a raised deck and artificial grass, and there's a block-built utility shed.
The front garden is behind an electronic gate and is paved for parking with some flowerbeds as well.
Number 57A Belmont Avenue is for sale for €925,000 with DNG Central (01) 679 4088.
