On the market: A pretty cottage and site in Clontarf
There are two ways of looking at Number 197 Howth Road, Clontarf, as a prospective property purchase. One is as a cute (if a little dated) detached dormer bungalow from the 1930s.
The other is as a site, because the property comes with full planning permission for a three-storey block of four apartments.
The house has 1,523 square feet accommodating a living room with a bay window and cast-iron fireplace, a kitchen/diner (18 feet by 15) with a brick, coal-effect fireplace in the middle of it, four bedrooms, a bathroom, and a converted attic.
Outside is a tarred driveway for off-street parking and a back garden (in lawn) measuring 45 feet by 32. And though Clontarf is the address, Killester is the nearest village. Killester Dart Station is about a five-minute walk away.
Number 197 Howth Road is for sale through Gallagher Quigley in Fairview (01 818 3000) with an asking price of €695,000.
