Redpark, found at 149 Howth Road in Dublin 3, was probably built around the 1930s. It has been extended throughout its history so that it now measures 3,229 sq ft and has seven bedrooms.
Even with all that space, the selling agents point out that it could probably be extended further since it's detached, on a good-sized site and has an adjoining garage that hasn't been converted.
The property is on a corner site where Howth Road meets Stiles Road, and not far from Clontarf Golf Club. It is in good condition, with features including original fireplaces, bay windows and high ceilings.
The wide entrance hall, with an archway, leads to the three reception rooms on the ground floor. Two are at the front of the house and have bay windows and original fireplaces, and the third is at the back, also coming with a fireplace and bay windows and with double doors leading out to the garden. The kitchen, also overlooking the back garden, has exposed ceiling beams. It measures roughly 15 ft by 13 ft and has timber cupboards and a red-tiled floor.
Off the kitchen is a utility room with a door to the garage. There's also a guest toilet and shower room on the ground floor.
Upstairs are seven bedrooms upstairs, as well as a bathroom and separate toilet.
None of the bedrooms has an en-suite, so a buyer who doesn't need a house that sleeps seven will probably consider converting one or two of the smaller bedrooms into bathrooms. There's off-street parking on the front driveway, and the southeast-facing gardens are in lawn, with mature flowering shrubs and trees. The back wall of the house is covered in creeper.
It is less than ten minutes' walk to the nearest Dart station, which is Killester, and is for sale for €1.1m with DNG Fairview (01) 833 1802.
