Foxrock Park is tucked away off Kill Lane, from where you can be in Grafton Street in 30 minutes via the Stillorgan Road. Dating back to the 1960s, this Sorohan-built estate has large communal green areas lined with trees.
No142 is a four-bed semi with a D1 BER and 1,658 sq ft of living space, which could easily be increased by converting the adjoining garage and attic, subject to planning.
The bedrooms are upstairs, along with a bathroom and separate WC, while downstairs are a dining room, living room, kitchen, utility and guest WC.
48 Hollybrook, Brighton Road
€695k DNG Stillorgan (01) 283 2700
When first launched by developer Sean Dunne in 2002, Hollybrook became one of Ireland’s most expensive apartment schemes, with plush pads selling for up to €2.5m. Following the 2008 crash, prices plummeted from their Celtic Tiger high and have only started to edge up again in recent years.
Residents in this exclusive development have access to a 24-hour concierge service, gym, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi and landscaped gardens. Spanning 1,345 sq ft with a cosy B3 BER, No48 on the third floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, two bedrooms (one with ensuite bathroom and walk-in wardrobe) and a shower room.
Foxrock village is a short stroll away.
