Spoiled for choice in sporty Clontarf for just €900k
If you lived at Castle Avenue in Clontarf, Dublin 3, you'd be so spoiled for choice of sporting activities that it would be impossible to remain sedentary without having to explain yourself to the neighbours.
There's Clontarf Lawn Tennis Club, Clontarf Rugby Club, Clontarf Golf Club, Clontarf Cricket Club, and Scoil Uí Chonaill GAA Club, all nearby. Then there's your proximity to both St Anne's Park and Bull Island, making you feel perpetually guilty that you're not walking the dog enough.
Happily, Elviria, a detached dormer bungalow at 163 Castle Avenue, has a range of discreet reception rooms where you can hide from outdoorsy types all day. There's even a bar and sauna in the back garden, and no one will ever know you're there.
Elviria, which will be auctioned next month, is 2,530 sq ft in size. The ground floor reception rooms consist of a dining room, a sitting room at the front with a fireplace and a bay window, and a west-facing conservatory at the back.
The kitchen, which measures over 26 feet by 16, includes a living area with a fireplace, for quietly watching television, and opens into the conservatory. There's also a utility room and study on the ground floor.
Upstairs there are four bedrooms and a family bathroom with a power shower. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and a walk-in wardrobe.
There's parking for three or four cars on the front driveway. Out the back is a landscaped, west-facing garden with a fitted bar and sauna. It's about five minutes' walk up the road to the Dart station at Killester.
Number 163 Castle Avenue, Clontarf, Dublin 3, will be auctioned at 2.30pm on Tuesday October 16 at the Society of Chartered Surveyors, 38 Merrion Square. Estate agent Quinn Agnew (01 662 3113) has issued an AMV of €900,000.
