Peace and tranquillity at Montpelier Hill on the edge of south Dublin
10 Hunters Place, Hunterswood €335k
If a dove took flight from the Papal Cross in Dublin's Phoenix Park, and flew in a straight line south for some seven miles, it would come to rest, ironically enough, at the Hellfire Club.
Just before it reached its haunting destination - scene of legendary depravity among young reprobates in 18th-century Dublin - the bird would pass over the Hunterswood estate in Ballycullen, Dublin 24.
Built in the first decade of this century, Hunterswood lies just north of Montpelier Hill, on the very border of the south Dublin countryside, and so these might be described as among the last homely houses before the Hellfire Club.
This is a neat, peaceable neighbourhood with not a whiff of debauchery or devil worship. You'll find nearby a shopping centre, a creche, hairdressers for both dogs and humans, and buses to convey you harmlessly towards Aungier Street and the IFSC.
For hell-raising motoring types, the M50 (Junction 12) is within five minutes' drive.
No 10 Hunters Place is a three-bed at the end of a terrace and measures 1,000 sq ft on two floors, all in very good condition.
The three bedrooms are on the first floor, all with built-in wardrobes and the main bedroom with an ensuite shower. One bedroom is a single and currently used as a study.
The family bathroom is also on the first floor and there's a guest toilet downstairs that's plumbed to double as a utility room.
On the ground floor you'll find a living room to the front with a fireplace, with double doors leading to an eat-in kitchen at the back.
French doors in the kitchen lead to a nicely cared-for back garden with both a raised deck and a patio.
No 10 Hunters Place has an asking price of €335,000 and is for sale with DNG Tallaght (01) 459 9522.
