Small family terrace with hidden extras in Malahide development
22 Galtrim Grange, Malahide €495k
Broomfield House in Malahide, Co Dublin, along with its outbuildings, was demolished almost 20 years ago to make way for the Galtrim Grange development.
The estate is nicely situated for families, as it consists of a series of culs-de-sac, bounded by open fields to the west and by Malahide Community School to the east. Malahide village and the train station are about 20 minutes' walk away to the north, and nearby are both Malahide Golf Club and Naomh Mearnóg GAA club.
As a two-bed, 22 Galtrim Grange is for a small family. It's in the middle of a terrace and has a back garden facing due south, which has been very prettily landscaped with paving, gravelled beds, shrubs and a pond.
The garden is made to feel part of the house by means of floor-to-ceiling windows in the rear extension, which has allowed for an open-plan kitchen, dining room and lounge at the back.
The kitchen has marble countertops and a Rangemaster cooker which is included in the sale. The living area is lit by a pair of skylights and French doors for wandering in and out of the garden.
The ground floor also has a lounge to the front with a bay window and a gas-fitted fireplace in wood and marble.
There's gas-fired central heating throughout and a B3 energy rating.
Up on the first floor there are two bedrooms, both with fitted wardrobes. The main bathroom is also on this level, with a guest toilet downstairs.
The floor area amounts to 1,206 sq ft and the attic has also been converted; there's a room up there with two skylights, accessible by proper stairs.
There's parking for two cars out the front and a comparatively low annual management fee of €350 applies.
